Curator-Led Exhibition Tour  (Public Programs)

Join us for a curator-led exhibit tour of, "Sympathetic Detail: R. F. Deckert and the Art of Natural History Illustration," with Curator of History Shirley Wajda.

"Sympathetic Detail," is in the Art-Science-Creativity Gallery through November 22, 2017.

For centuries, artists illustrated what scientists discovered, collected, and classified. This exhibition features the watercolor paintings of artist Richard F. Deckert (1878-1971). Deckert spent his adult life exploring the natural world, collecting and researching animals, particularly reptiles and amphibians, for museums, universities, and scholars. His sympathetic portraits of these animals, technically correct to the finest detail, illuminate a fascinating chapter in natural history illustration.
