Gallery Talk: James Prosek – Questioning Nature’s Nomenclature
Contemporary artist James Prosek embodies the continuation of the historic tradition of the artist-naturalist in Connecticut. Join Parsons for a discussion of how Prosek follows in the footsteps of renowned naturalists like John James Audubon and Roger Tory Peterson, and innovates upon conventional methods to consider how we engage with, identify, and categorize nature. Whether making paintings of fish from life, printing with eels, or stuffing squirrels, hear how Prosek’s art reinforces the fact of the environment’s interconnectedness. Featuring Jenny Parsons, Assistant Curator. Free with Museum admission.
