This Exhibit will be here from October 9th - January 12th, 2021
Our brand new exhibit at the museum is Inspired by Endangered Species: Animals and Plants in Fabric Perspectives.
Lively, colorful, and skillfully made fabric “portraits” of 182 endangered species bring them to real, vibrant life. Each portrait features fascinating animal and plant facts from rescuers, scientists, conservationists, and more: where they live, what their superpowers are, why they are at risk, and how we can help. Dedicated and passionate people who work to protect endangered species share details of their roles and specialties, the planning behind conservation measures, threats to healthy habitats, and inspiring success stories.
This exhibition fosters eco-awareness and responsibility with a hopeful and positive tone, not only educating, but also inspiring action. A percentage of money earned by the author from the sale of the book “Inspired by Endangered Species” will be donated to the Sea Turtle Conservancy and to the WILD Foundation. (The book is available in the NQM Gift Shop.)
