Gallery Talk: The Artist-Naturalist in Early America

June 15, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join Curator Jenny Parsons for a talk discussing America’s pioneering artist-naturalists like William Bartram, the Peale family, Alexander Wilson, and John James Audubon. Learn more about their work in Philadelphia and how the study of natural history in early America was often a ‘family affair.’ This event is free with Museum admission.
