The Bell Museum, Sketching the Night

Weisman Art Museum

Sketching the Night

Help us catalog this amazing diversity of flying, crawling, and jumping life of the night through the art of sketching. “Capture” your very own insect model and create a miniature portrait using a variety of art materials. Take your portrait with you, or add it to the communal diversity of life gallery, a hanging art record of the incredible creatures that we see during the night. Who knows—your artwork might become a draw for other insect visitors!

Located at the Weisman Art Museum on the East River Road Lawn

Presented by the Bell Museum of Natural History with support from Gary Smaby. The Bell Museum is part of the University of Minnesota’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences.
