GREEN BAY – From helping engineer our forests to being one of the biggest trends in fashion, birds have had an impact on our lives.
The new exhibit “Birds” explores our relationship with these feathered creatures through the Neville Public Museum of Brown County’s collection of taxidermy and art.
“I am excited for Birds to open,” said James Peth Museum Research Technician and Curator of the exhibit. “I’m thrilled that visitors will get to experience a large part of the museum’s natural history collection that has not been out in such volume before. The main inspiration for the exhibit is the relationship between birds and people. Exploring this concept has given us the exciting chance to mix art and science.”
Opening June 15, 2019, Birds features 150 taxidermy specimens, 88 eggs, 10 nests, 50 pieces of art, and 25 artifacts featuring birds in fashion from the collection of the Neville Public Museum.
The museum, on the west bank of the Fox River in downtown Green Bay, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, and from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday. It is closed on Mondays.
