4PM – 7PM. The Egg Harbor Public Arts Initiative announces the opening of the Lawton Gallery’s exhibition, “Museum of Natural Inspiration: Artists Explore the Richter Collection.” This exhibit is collaboration between the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay’s Lawton Gallery, the University’s Center for Biodiversity, and features artists who have created artwork inspired by the Richter Museum of Natural History’s collection of specimens. These specimens will be displayed alongside the artwork they have inspired in a true partnership of art and science.
The exhibit will open with a free public reception on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 4PM to 7PM, including a special presentation by the Open-Door Bird Sanctuary, Refreshments will be available. The artwork on display is on loan to the Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion from University Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Lawton Gallery.
This exhibition will remain on display until Spring 2020. It is the hope that by displaying the works in Door County, it will further broaden year-long celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Center for Biodiversity.
