Library Special Collections at the American Museum of Natural History is proud to launch its wide-ranging new online database of digital images from the Library's collections, featuring many images never before seen outside the Library. Come celebrate this milestone as Library Director Tom Baione moderates a lively discussion with renowned New York-based artists Alexis Rockman and Mark Dion about how these images have been influential to their careers. The discussion will be illustrated with slides of the artists' popular work, juxtaposed with the Museum images that inspired their creativity and artistic experience. As a memento, each guest will receive a packet of historic 35mm lecture slides from the Library's collection. In the pre-Internet era, these slides were provided to educators and researchers for presentations and reference.
