James Watrous Gallery: Animal, Mineral, Vegetable…and Digital

October 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In this era of rapid environmental change, the animal, mineral, and plant specimens preserved in natural history collections offer a crucial window into the past. Around the world, natural history curators are digitizing their collections to offer scientists greater access for specimen-based research and the development of long-range datasets. Learn more about Wisconsin’s early specimen collectors and UW-Madison’s effort to make its own natural history collections available online from curators Ken Cameron, Laura Monahan, Craig Brabant, and Carrie Eaton, and artist Martha Glowacki, co-curator of “Collections & Connections: 150 Years of the Wisconsin Academy,” which was on view at the James Watrous Gallery earlier in 2020.
