TAXIDERMY GONE ROGUE!

Thursday, October 9, 7-9PM.

Book Release Party for Robert Marbury’s Taxidermy Art!

Bionic fawns. Jewel-encrusted piglets. Martini-sipping winged monkeys. Let artist Robert Marbury be your guide to the denizens of the delightfully macabre world of Rogue Taxidermy. In Taxidermy Art (Artisan Books), Marbury offers the first survey of this provocative art movement, sharing over 100 pieces by today’s leading artists and illustrated workshops to inspire the budding taxidermist.

Celebrate the release of Marbury’s first book at this hometown party, and hear Marbury in conversation with the fine fellows from Bazaar on the history of taxidermy. Followed by Q&A and book signing.

Robert Marbury is a multidisciplinary artist and the director and cofounder of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists. In addition to creating his own art, he launched the taxidermy biennial at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles and co-hosts and judges the annual Carnivorous Nights Taxidermy Contest in Brooklyn. Marbury lives in Baltimore, Maryland, and is available for interviews.

Co-sponsored by Bazaar Baltimore!
