Now in its 29th year, the Museum is proud to showcase California artists who bring science to life through art in our beloved annual Art of Nature exhibit. The exhibit highlights the work of several artists whose work illustrates science in a variety of media with a wide range of subjects, including: insects, plants, birds, mammals, landscapes and microorganisms. We invite you to dive into the beautiful world of illustration yourself and test your skills while drawing museum specimens at our Illustration Station.
