A Catalogue of Obsessions
Prints and Drawings by Peter Olson
Augmented by Antique Natural History Illustrations

“This exhibit traces the arc of one artist’s flirtation with Natural History: in the wild, in museums and on the pages of antique textbooks. I have always been fascinated with the possibilities of blending science and art.” Peter Olson, 2019
