Due to Governor Newsom’s declaration that large gatherings in California should be canceled through the end of March, we have decided to postpone this event. We will announce a new date once it’s confirmed. Thank you for your understanding. Ticket holders will be offered a refund or to transfer their ticket to the rescheduled date.

Join SBMNH for Stuffed, a documentary feature film about the surprising world of taxidermy, with special live appearance by award-winning taxidermist Allis Markham of Prey Taxidermy. Markham created over 50 new mounts for the museum's diorama refreshing in 2018, and is one of the passionate, renowned artists from across the world featured in this 2019 film directed by Erin Derham. Stuffed allows the audience to explore the diverse subculture of taxidermy, where sculptors must also be scientists. It is a genre of art, formed by a collection of people who have a fanaticism for nature, matched only by their desire to protect it.

84 minutes, followed by Q&A with Markham and SBMNH Curator of Vertebrate Zoology Krista Fahy, Ph.D.
