Museum of Jurassic Technology

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Museum of Jurassic Technology chronicles an uncommon history of expression and innovation in the arts, humanities, and sciences, with an emphasis on illuminating forgotten or little-known knowledge and beliefs, and honoring individuals who have remained under- or unrecognized yet have gone to great lengths in the service of unusual ideas.

The grant will help fund the commission of a series of oil paintings by Jose Clemente Orozco Farias for installation in the Museum’s upcoming permanent exhibition dedicated to medieval bestiary manuscripts, entitled Fauna of Mirrors. The artist has been commissioned to paint floor-to-ceiling flora and fauna-themed murals and large-scale oil paintings, to be installed in a new wing of the Museum dedicated to Fauna of Mirrors, and will be installed in summer 2018.
