MatsuzLionCubJana Matusz, an accomplished Massachusetts-based painter and founding sketching facilitator volunteer with the museum, has explored this with expressive prints, based on original paintings, that animate animals found in the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Matusz’s portraits use vibrant color and texture to give life and voice to the faces of animal specimens otherwise frozen in time and space. Made with love and reverence for the animals she paints, Matusz has imbued each with a personality all its own. For additional information, click here.
