Art by AnimalsRemember Congo the chimpanzee, whose paintings were sold at Bonhams for 14,400, more than 20 times their estimate? Artistic animals like Congo are the subject of this free exhibition at the Grant Museum of Zoology, where the chief question remains, "do animals make art?". See paintings by apes and elephants which are put forward alongside animal specimens and historical documentation and judge for yourself whether they are works of art or just lines on a page. NOTE: The Museum is closed for the Easter break from 5-11 April 2012.

Founded in 1827, the museum retains an air of the avid Victorian collector with cases packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. More about Grant Museum of Zoology
