Chuck Wolf of the Wolf Fine Art -Los Angeles, to curate the premier art exhibition at Animal History Museum. Live From Burbank!
"Any time an art show involves a life-sized rhinoceros, I think you’re off to a good start. This one happens to be completely covered in 1000, one dollar bills. It’s the contribution of Funny Zoo co-founder Bernard Scoffie, who also heads the French foundation 30 Millions d’Amis (30 Million Friends) an animal advocacy group started in 1976 by his family. Also contributing sculpture is Claudio Garzon, working in marine debris plastics, which call attention to the dangers of rising plastic levels in our oceans, and their threat to marine wildlife, like marine mammals, sea birds and sea turtles.
One thing the two sculptors, nine painters and one photographer all have in common is their enthusiasm and passion for animals. There will be a lot of large work exhibited with a lot of five and six foot pieces….and a lot of color. This is a contemporary show by local L.A.-based artists, and that flavor is distinct, with lively vibrancy and realism to pop and conceptual styles." Chuck Wolf, Fine Art Curator, The Wolf Fine Art.
A phenomenal group of top tier talent exhibiting include:
Gared Luquet, Aimée Rolin Hoover, Theresa King Paden, Linzi Lynn, Alicia Rius, Melinda McLeod, Carol Heiman-Greene, Kim Kimbro, Krista Augius, Chris Saunders, Funny Zoo, and Claudio Garzon.
About Animal History Museum
The Animal History Museum announces that it will open doors later this Spring to a 5,300+ sq. ft. location at the Burbank Town Center in downtown Burbank, CA.
“People throughout all civilizations have long understood that humans can and do form deep, meaningful relationships across species. For most of recorded history, that relationship has been marginalized. But that’s changing.”
“…Like the way natural history museums explore fossils and science, we’ll explore interactions and relationships,”
“We’re thrilled that our very first exhibition is a collection of some of LA’s best-known “animal” artists, curated by longtime L.A. fine art dealer, Charles Wolf.”
Says Museum founder and Executive Director, Amy Breyer.
