The Cooper Hewitt presents this exhibition of nearly 65 drawings and prints from the 16th and 17th centuries that feature elements of nature transformed into ethereal and sometimes eerie creations. Some of the works are a mere few inches in size but include incredible attention to detail, with creatures wrapped in tapestries or encased in stained glass, plus a number of other interpretations. All objects were pulled from the museum’s permanent collection and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Library. For more information, visit cooperhewitt.org.
