Blessed Beasts and Curious Creatures
November 29, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFREE
Inspired by the San Diego Zoo’s 100th Anniversary, the Timken joins six prominent Balboa Park institutions in a collaboration of animal-themed exhibitions for 2016.
The Timken’s exhibition, Blessed Beasts and Curious Creatures: Animal Processionals from the 13th to the 21st Centuries, runs September 23 through December 11, 2016 and examines humanity’s changing relationship with animals, nature, and the world through Western art.
The interactive children’s area includes a reading area designed to connect visitors with animals through the literary world. Curated selections of books celebrating animal themes compliments the exhibition’s works of art and serve as modern interpretations of bestiaries.
