Mammals Revealed is a new exhibition showing how scientists study wild mammals and share their discoveries. The museum's curator of mammals, Dr. Roland Kays, leads visitors through the diverse toolbox of techniques used by field biologists with a series of photographs, video, and displays of scientific equipment. The exhibition then shows how artists transform these details into works of art used in a popular field guide (Kays and Wilson, Mammals of North America, 2002). This mix of art and science begins in libraries and museum collections, is captured through an artist's sketch pad, and grows into final works of art that make up a field guide. The exhibition highlights original artwork, a diversity of museum specimens from shrew to bear to muskox, videos, and an array of educational activities. Throughout this exhibition, visitors will learn details about the lives mammals, and see examples of some of the most exciting recent mammal discoveries.
