About the organizer

Organized by
Nina Salem

We are working hard to bring Chicago its first Insect and Taxidermy Museum! We will focus on connecting to the beauty of nature in a non-traditional sense. During these events we will engage all of our senses to foster both excitement and growth. At The Insect Asylum we encourage you to explore, as we do! Once we open our doors we are hoping you will engage with the exhibits and develop a true sense of belonging with nature. Our mission is to allow people to get excited, to learn and to grow. We understand that inspiration takes flight in many forms. Come and get inspired, create, and connect with a beautiful community! Also, please keep in mind The Insect Asylum is a self-funded endeavor. This labor of love will take some time to complete. Any and all funds we raise help us bring more to the community! We want to make our project affordable to everyone, so if you can afford to sponsor entrance for someone else please reach out. If you need to be sponsored to participate, please reach out or visit our website. We want to be able to include everyone. Donations of any kind are always welcome

Hope to see you there,
