The Creatures Among Us

Animals have been the subject of art for millennia, beginning with ancient cave paintings made over 35,000 years ago. From scientific renderings of nature’s wondrous creatures to depictions of livestock and beasts of burden, to commemorating our beloved four-legged family members, artists have recorded the many roles animals play in our world. The Creatures Among Us celebrates our enduring fascination with animals by presenting a selection of diverse works—some not seen in years—drawn from the Everson’s collection.
