We are thrilled to announce the opening of the Animal History Museum this Spring!  While we’ve enjoyed creating online art exhibits, growing our online library and even establishing a small media gallery, we finally have a brick-and-mortar home!

We love it, and we think you’re going to love it too.  It’s got lots of room to grow, is only about a block east of a major highway, near public transportation (both buses and trains), and has plenty of parking!  Our new location is in downtown Burbank, one of the premiere shopping and dining destinations in the Los Angeles area.  You can find us at:  Burbank Town Center | 201 E. Magnolia Blvd., Suite 296 | Burbank, CA 91502

Live from Burbank! The Premier Exhibition Benefiting the Animal History Museum

“Any time an art show involves a life-sized rhinoceros, I think you’re off to a good start. This one happens to be completely covered in 1000, one dollar bills,” says Los Angeles Fine Art Dealer, Chuck Wolf.  Wolf, of The Wolf Fine Art, is curating the Animal History Museum’s opening art reception.  As Wolf explains, the rhinoceros is the contribution of Funny Zoo co-founder Bernard Scoffie.  Scoffie also heads the French foundation 30 Millions d’Amis (30 Million Friends) an animal advocacy group started in 1976 by his family.  Also contributing sculpture is Claudi Garzon, working in marine debris plastics, which call attention to the dangers of rising plastic levels in our oceans, and their threat to marine wildlife, like marine mammals, sea birds and Garzon’s beloved sea turtles.

Wolf notes that these artists are “all working primarily in animal genres dedicated to the promotion and protection of animals from exotic to domestic.  One thing the two sculptors, nine painters and a photographer all have in common is their enthusiasm and passion for animals. There will be a lot of large work exhibited with a lot of five and six foot pieces… and a lot of color.  This is a contemporary show by local L.A.-based artists, and that flavor is distinct, with lively vibrancy and realism to pop and conceptual styles.”

This event is free and open to the public.  A portion of the proceeds from all art sales benefits the museum.

Kindred Souls

History records Hippocrates as saying “The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different.”  The sentiment holds just as true today as it did millennia ago, if not more so, as we – both as individuals and as societies – increasingly recognize that the perceptions of the many species with whom we share this planet are not so different from our own.

Curated by North Hollywood fine artist and fine art dealer, Hovik Kochinian, Kindred Souls is a collection of modern works that evoke a quiet sense of timeliness.   The saturated colors and bold brush strokes that initially draw viewers into these engaging tableaus slowly give way to an unmistakable curiosity, as viewers are invited to wonder from whose point of view is the story being told.

This event is free and open to the public.  A portion of the proceeds from all art sales benefits the museum.

More events are being planned. Please check back for updates!
