Register here for this program and the Annual Member Reception
Join us for this unique Weeknights at the Wagner program—unlike any we have done before—and take a fresh look at our collection through the eyes of guest curators. We are thrilled to have Joanna Ebenstein, Founder, Curator and Creative Director of the Morbid Anatomy blog, library, and museum, and Evan Michelson, co-owner of Obscura Antiques and one of the stars of the Science Channel show Oddities, to curate an exclusive, virtual collection of their favorite Wagner specimens. There will be an extended Q&A session with Joanna, Evan and Susan Glassman, Director of the Wagner Free Institute of Science.
Following the presentation, the Wagner's Annual Member Reception will take place upstairs in the museum with finger food, drinks, and a chance to view highlighted specimens. The Member Reception is only one of the great benefits of becoming a friend of the Institute. Guests may attend the reception for $10.

This program is part of an ongoing project to explore new approaches to interpreting Wagner's collections and is made possible by support from the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage.
