Join exhibition production specialist Steve Deane to discover an amazingly intricate silver cup in the shape of a fox head. We will explore how the cup was made, how its use was tied to hunting, and how our exhibition team made the cup “float” for display in an exhibition.

We’ll also look at a series of prints of Reynard the Fox and a small fox sculpture from the fifth century. Families will learn how to make their own sculpture from Play-Doh!

Creature Feature, an online series from the Harvard Art Museums, offers a chance for families to explore magical creatures across the collections through close looking and curious exploration with museum staff. Creature Feature talks are free, open to explorers ages 6 and up, and offered once a month on Zoom.

Led by:
Steve Deane, Exhibition Production Specialist, Collections Management
