The Museum welcomes back the California Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and the CSUMB Science Illustration Graduate Program for its 25th annual exhibit highlighting the amazing detail and artistry of local science illustrators. Come experience over 60 works in a variety of media, depicting botany, birds, mammals and invertebrates. Explore why art is so important to science, and our understanding of the natural world. You are invited to explore the beautiful world of illustration and test your own skills while drawing Museum specimens in our Illustration Station.

"Art and illustration of science and natural history has had a long and storied tradition from the days of illustrators who joined expeditions of exploration around the globe, to the modern-day artists who create digital images of our universe. We’re proud to exhibit artworks by our guild members and the next generation of science illustrators who continue to produce the images that inspire and describe the diversity and complexity of the world around us".
