Happy New Year! I hope you had a restive, festive holiday. Today on Museum Bites I’m saying good-bye.
Big Bite: Quick Bite
Today on Museum Quick Bites we’re winding the clock back to the Mesozoic Era and taking a brief look at a toothy, big jawed creature called Metoposaurus. Don’t be fooled by Metoposaurus’ name, this predator is all amphibian.
Fan Dance: Quick Bite
The temps are dropping, so today on Museum Quick Bites we’re turning up the heat with Dimetrodon, a carnivorous beast that roamed the earth approximately 286 million years ago.
Boomerang Head: Quick Bite
Happy Friday! Today on Museum Quick Bites we’re diving with diplocaulus, a prehistoric creature on display at the Michigan State University Science & Culture Museum. Nicknamed boomerang head, for its uniquely shaped skull, diplocaulus is a rare delight. Join me for a quick look-see.
Dazzling Deco: Reboot
Today on Museum Bites we’re taking a tour through the Milwaukee Art Museum’s dazzling collection of art deco. Sleek and shiny art deco influenced fashion, entertainment, architecture, and even manufacturing during the 1920s and 1930s. At the dawn of the machine age, art deco transformed our everyday gizmos and gadgets into functional art. Join me for a brief look at some of these delightful designs.
Today on Museum Bites we’re wrapping up our visit to the Dennos Museum Center with a stroll through its modern art wing. This eclectic collection features local artists whose works range from the whimsical to the grief-stricken. We’ll pay tribute to the culinary arts, meet a supporting lady, and kick back in a moonlit field. We begin in the kitchen…
Lovely Monsters: Reboot
Today on Museum Bites we’re talking tornadoes with a tour through photographer and storm chaser, Camille Seaman’s The Big Cloud exhibit at the Michigan State University Museum. Thanks to years of watching Dorothy (and her little dog too!), tornadoes have been my go-to nightmare.
Float Like a Butterfly
Today on Museum Bites we’re floating on air. The trees are budding, the birds are nesting, and soon butterflies will be fluttering about. These colorful creatures symbolize daintiness and whimsy, but don’t be fooled. Butterflies are no shrinking violets.
If the Shoe Fits
Imelda Marcos’s were maligned, Michael Jordan’s were initially fined, and a scullery maid turned princess famously left one behind. Today on Museum Bites were kicking up our heels in honor of shoes.
Today on Museum Bites we’re kicking off my road trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a tour through the Milwaukee Art Museum’s dazzling collection of art deco. Sleek and shiny art deco influenced fashion, entertainment, architecture and even manufacturing during the 1920s and 1930s.
