Archives For museum

David Wilson created an entire museum based on the wonder-cabinets of the Victorian era (and the much cooler parent of what we now know as our museums of natural history). But more lurks here besides the exhibits housing pronged ants, horned humans or a landscape carved on a fruit pit; For David is an artist and this LA museum is his “artwork”. There is even a book on this place, Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonder: Pronged Ants, Horned Humans, Mice on Toast, and Other Marvels of Jurassic Technology, by the always interesting Lawrence Weschler. A highly recommended read.
