Taxidermy seems pretty weird, but aren’t we all weird?

Taxidermy isn’t known for being the most approachable of the arts. It’s surprisingly similar to much of everyday life! In her CreativeMornings Philadelphia talk, Diamond Tooth Taxidermy’s Beth Beverly, Philadelphia’s premier couture taxidermist, will provide a brief history of taxidermy from Victorian times through modern day. Get ready to hear about the weird things you’d only hear in a taxidermy studio!
