Taxidermy Curio

After some eye rolling, my son and I agreed to go with Marc – my husband, to the Aiken Free Library in Pawling , NY – to see a small group Art Show – Four of Marc’s Photos were in the show. Of course we got lost along the way and were incredibly grouchy by the time we found the Library – I mean how could we not “find” the Library in a tiny town!

It turns out the show was packed and the most interesting part of the Library was it’s museum! The building itself is wonderful late Victorian architecture and really pretty but the museum — ahhh …. It reminded me of the Bruce Museum in Greenwich CT. Before it was totally renovated and lost it’s charm. Downstairs in the basement is their natural history museum with many vignettes like this curio of taxidermy birds.
