"Stuffed" Film Viewing with Taxidermy Q&A

Join world title taxidermy holder and museum preservationist Allis Markham, owner of LA's Prey Taxidermy, at the Whatcom Museum for a weekend of events. 

On Friday, May 31, the Whatcom Museum is hosting a viewing of the film Stuffed, which premiered to acclaim at SXSW in Austin. It features Allis and documents the often-surprising and always-unique world of taxidermy through the eyes of the newest generation of artists and naturalists. The film allows the audience to dip into and explore a diverse subculture, where sculptors must also be scientists. It is a genre of art formed by a collection of people who have a fanaticism for nature, matched only by their desire to protect it. 

Allis will join us for the viewing, answer questions, and show us a sampling of taxidermy specimen. On Saturday, June 1, join Allis and award-winning biologist & taxidermist Paloma Strong for Taxidermy Lab 101.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
