About this event

In the 1800s, taxidermy was displayed at world expos to engage the public in wonder and curiosity. Wunderkammer carries this tradition forward, but with a focus on modern values of sustainability, inclusivity, and imagination.

Join us as the nation's most innovative taxidermy artists fill you with awe and wonder as they showcase their most creative creatures in a showcase that awards the beautiful and bizarre. A cabinet of curiosities come to life!

Celebrate the art and science of taxidermy with your hosts for the night Justin Fornal, the Science Channel star and Explorer’s Club culinary ambassador notorious for his wild game dinners, and Divya Anantharaman, NYC’s premiere taxidermist, world traveling educator, and star of the award winning documentary "Rearranging Skin". We have an all star judging panel, including Kate Clark, Ave Rose, Robert Marbury, and George Dante!
