Art Meets Science Library Tour
27 November, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 9:45 pm£15
With more than one million items, some of which date back to the fifteenth century, the Museum’s Earth Sciences Library is considered one of the world’s greatest natural history collections. This tour will bring the BBC Radio 4 series Natural Histories to life, with library experts explaining how art and science have transformed our understanding of the natural world.
You’ll see rarely displayed artwork and learn how art can allow us to see a species in a new light, as with Edward Lear’s famous illustrations of parrots. – See more at: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/whats-on/programs/nhm/art_meets_science_library_tour.html?date=09.11.2015#sthash.MZXYqBeu.dpuf
