Fables, Insults, and Reverence: the Animals of UND Art Collections

The UND Art Collections opening, Fables, Insults, and Reverence: the Animals of UND Art Collections, will be held at the Empire Arts Center, 415 DeMers Ave, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 and you are invited!


This exhibition will give viewers the opportunity to enjoy a selection of animal-centric works of art. From the chicken-people of Francisco Goya to the horses of Walter Piehl, a variety of insects, birds, and mammals have come together to tell a tale of how they have each been employed by artists across centuries to illustrate stories, create allegory, and demonstrate their relationships with humankind.


The reception is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be provided by Rhombus. Live music.

Exhibit dates: Jan. 22 – Mar. 31, 2019
