Giants, Dragons, & Unicorns: The World of Mythic Creatures

Minnetrista-exhibit-Muncie

At Minnetrista in Muncie January 23-May 9

The world is full of stories about brave heroes, magical events, and fantastic beings. Tales of mythic creatures have been with us for thousands of years, sometimes inspired by living animals or even fossils. Together, mythic creatures give shape to humankind’s greatest hopes and fears, and most passionate dreams. Minnetrista in Muncie will be hosting Giants, Dragons and Unicorns: The world of Mythic Creatures, an exhibit from the American Museum of Natural History January 23-May 9.

Dive to the depths with sea monsters, hear stories of mermaids, and see
how fossils informed the tales of unicorns, griffins, and giants. Trace the development of dragons from culture to culture. This exhibit combines unique cultural objects, dramatic models, engaging multimedia, and interactive games to tell the origin stories behind the legends of mythical creatures from around the world.

Also make plans to visit their 31st Annual Juried Art Show, March 13-April 11, where you’ll discover Indiana’s artists and their Hoosier creativity. Venture into a world of art, discover your own inner artist, and even purchase the work of these artists to liven up your home.
