Our animals modeling for an art show

A friend and former Museum Educator, Rebecca Dotterer, has an art show at the NC Botanical Gardens until the end of the month. Several of our animals at the Museum modeled for Rebecca’s artwork. Several years ago, our spotted salamander was the model for the Eno Festival T-shirt.

Check some of the artwork out below, or head to the NC Botanical Gardens to see the complete show through the end of the month.
