The Menagerie: Animals in Art

Our newest exhibit is open now! The exhibit explores animals as subjects in artworkAnimals have captured the attention of artists in Onondaga County throughout history. Some are wild animals that are integral to the natural landscape. Others are domestic helpers that assist with transportation or supplying food, or loving companions to their owners.

The artwork style ranges from George Knapp’s traditional early 20th century to Irene Wood’s quirky mid 20th century imagination, and will include wood sculptures created by local artist Juan Taylor.

The exhibit will be a treat for all animal and art lovers! Come check it out in our downtown museum, in the downstairs temporary exhibit gallery.
