  • Parkeology: Lives of Specimens

    Parkeology, a public art series that explores the hidden stories of Balboa Park, is coming to theNAT. Lives of Specimens, a partnership between the Museum and Parkeology, will culminate in a live storytelling and video installation about animal specimens and their human recordkeepers.

    For the past several months, Parkeology has worked with Museum staff to develop video footage and stories about the lives animals lead before they become part of the research collection of 6 million specimens. The April 28 public art performance at theNAT focuses on this research. Three biologists will pin birds, plants, and insects, accompanied by clarinetist Michiko Ogawa. On the rooftop terrace, music from cellist Judith Hamann will serve as a live soundtrack to a six-channel video installation of Museum archives. To conclude, three stories will be told live to the audience from the perspective of the Museum staff who had a relationship to these animals and specimens.

    Join us for this public art performance featuring music, art, and stories from the researchers who dedicate their lives to building a biological record of southern California and Baja. Attendance is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. RSVP through Parkeology.
