Taxidermy 101:

The Art and Science of Taxidermy

by Mickey Alice Kwapis


Are you interested in taxidermy, but aren't sure if you'd be able to participate in the craft yourself? Whether you're a bit squeamish or just curious to learn more about the topic before delving into a full-blown class, we've got the event for you.

Join us in welcoming Cleveland-based, internationally recognized, licensed taxidermist Mickey Alice Kwapis as she presents the art of taxidermy. Learn about the history of the process, techniques used in modern art and science, and a Q&A session. Light hors d'ouvres and a selection of beverages will be provided. Come mingle, learn something new, and see what kind of surprises we have up our sleeves!
