Depending on individual taste, the world of creepy, crawly, slithery, and slimy creatures may repel or intrigue you in the exhibit, Cold-Blooded Art: Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, and Insects. From frogs and snakes to rays and luna moths, this sampling of cold-blooded animals depicted by American sculptors, past and present, either will capture your interest or send you out of the room.

The exhibit, Out of the Wild: Animals in Sculpture focuses on the wildlife of Africa and North America and presents an overview of important artworks by prominent American sculptors from the early Twentieth Century to the present. Some artists from the collection, such as Edward Kemeys, Louis Paul Jonas, and Anna Hyatt Huntington, are icons among American animal sculptors. Contemporary sculptors in the exhibit have carried on the legacy of their predecessors. Among them are sculptors whose works are winning awards and being acquired by important museum and private collections.
