“The exhibition Illustrated Owls: A Who’s Hoo from the Museum’s Vault. Nocturnal birds of prey, owls have figured in world cultures throughout history, from Greek mythology to Harry Potter’s Hedwig. Their large, forward-facing eyes give the appearance of intelligence, inspiring artists and writers to portray owls as symbols of wisdom.
Illustrated Owls features the noble birds as represented by 22 artists whose work is on long-term loan or in The Carle’s permanent collection. Interpretations range from the realistic to the charming.”
