It’s a jungle out there!

Kingdom Animalia includes over 7 million species of both living and extinct creatures. Every animal is a member of the Animalia kingdom, ranging from the smallest at 0.0003 inches, to the largest, up to 110 feet. The Animal Kingdom is about as diverse as it gets.

Humans, key players in this kingdom, have a complex with relationship their cohabitants. In practical ways, humans rely on animals for food, clothing, textiles. Working animals make physical or dangerous tasks easier and safer. Members of the animal kingdom have proved invaluable in helping humans reach important scientific and medical milestones. And humans have long documented their encounters and interactions with the animal kingdom, in artforms from cave drawings, to sacred statues, to photos of cats posted to Instagram. Our relationship with Kingdom Animalia is anything but simple. This show welcomes animals of all shapes, sizes, and mediums.
