Modern Menagerie

Featuring interpretations from realistic to abstract and from fanciful to clever, these sculptures from the Woodson Art Museum’s collection depict a variety of birds and beasts. The mediums used to carve and shape the birds and animals vary, too, ranging from stone, wood, and bronze to glass and wire.
