The exhibition “Art and the Animal” is currently on display at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, 2401 Chautauqua in Norman.

The exhibition “Art and the Animal” is currently on display at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, 2401 Chautauqua in Norman.

On display until Sept. 5, it showcases works that were selected from a juried art show organized by the Society of Animal Artists. Linda Coldwell, public relations and marketing officer for the museum, said that the more than 60 pieces included resonate with people of all ages.

“I think everyone responds to and has an emotional reaction when it comes to animals,” she said. “This exhibit features some of the best animal artists in the world and their work is simply stunning.”

From bronze sculptures to oil paintings, many types of media are represented, Coldwell said, and the animals depicted are even more diverse.

“The types of animals really run the gamut,” she said. “The representation of so many different kinds of animals in the exhibit really underlines the diversity of our planet.”

Museum admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children ages 6 to 17, and free for children 5 and under. For more information, call 325-4712 or visit snomnh.ou.edu. —Courtney Silva
