Taxidermy Exhibit


I've reached the age when I can start puffing out my chest and beginning sentences with "Well, in MY day....."  and then go on to pontificate to young people.  Here's one I can use right here - Well, in my day - when we went to museums, we used to see dozens and dozens of stuffed animals.  Not any more though, most museums have long since relegated their menageries to the storage rooms - or worse (or better, depending on your view). 

But the Museum of Vancouver has just turned back the clock, bringing out much of its collection for public display once more.  As the saying goes, it wants to engage the public in a dialogue.  So do it.  What do you think of taxidermy, and what do you think of this exhibit?  Ravishing Beasts icon_video.gif
