Taxidermy Fair & Book Release for Robert Marbury’s Taxidermy Art
Sponsored by Atlas Obscura and Morbid Anatomy Museum
Bionic fawns. Jewel-encrusted piglets. Martini-sipping winged monkeys. Let artist Robert Marbury be your guide to the denizens of the delightfully macabre world of Rogue Taxidermy. In Taxidermy Art (Artisan Books), Marbury offers the first survey of this provocative art movement, sharing over 100 pieces by today’s leading artists and illustrated workshops to inspire the budding taxidermist.
On October 5th, celebrate the release of Taxidermy Art with an exposition of fur, feathers, art, and music. Featuring a live taxidermy demo by Katie Innamorato; a panel discussion between Marbury and artists Innamorato, and Nate Hill; and oddity booths including the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists, the Morbid Anatomy Museum, Bazaar Baltimore, Divya, Richard Santomauro Taxidermy, Tohickon Glass Eye, and many more to come. Stay late to get your signed copy of Marbury’s book and dance to the musical sounds of Band TBD.
