Exhibit: Mash-Up Menagerie at LICM

Mon Jul 8, 2019
Various times
3 and up
Free with museum admission ($14)

The newest LICM exhibit offers visitors the opportunity to collaborate with artist-in-residence Scott Larrabee.

Walk through the mouth of a whion (whale + lion), slide down an elester (elephant + rooster) and manipulate the legs and eyes of an octomoose (octopus + moose) in this summer exhibit devoted to creativity and imagination.

Visitors are confronted with the frames of mixed-up animals and challenged to help finish these fantastical beasts. What type of hide would these hybrid creatures have? Should their coloring be neon bright or camouflage? Over the course of eight weeks, animals evolve through visitors’ imagination and design ingenuity.

Families are encouraged to return throughout the summer to contribute to the growth of the Museum’s mapcap menagerie and watch the changes these creatures undergo on a daily basis.

On display through Sept. 1.
