Come take a walk on the wild side of art as we celebrate the opening of the redesigned Art & Nature Center! Meet participating artists from Beyond Human: Artist-Animal Collaborations, learn to dance like a bird, contribute to our collaborative environmental rangoli and more!

Beyond Human artist Steven Kutcher demonstrates how he uses live hissing cockroaches to create collaborative artwork.

How would you paint if you had a trunk or claws instead of hands? Try our animal-inspired painting tools and make your mark!

Do elephants learn to paint the same way as kids? What tools do they use? Find out as we read Elephants Can Paint Too! by Katya Arnold and look at paintings made by elephants on display in Beyond Human

Artist Steven Kutcher works as a bug wrangler for television, commercials and movies, including Spiderman, Matilda and We Bought a Zoo. Enjoy his behind-the-scenes stories about working with insects on camera.
