Visions of Nature

Visionsofnatureweb-01During 2016, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History presents a rich programme of exhibitions, talks and workshops by artists and writers whose varied work celebrates the natural environment.

The year kicked off with an exhibition by contemporary British artist Kurt Jackson. Bees (and the odd wasp) in my Bonnet opened in the Upper East Gallery on 18 March.

This was followed by Microsculpture, an exhibition of extraordinary insect photographs by British portrait photographer Levon Biss. Microsculpture opened in the Museum’s main court on 27 May.

And throughout the year the Museum is hosting three poets in residence. Their poetry, inspired by the Museum and its collections, is published in an anthology in December.
