October 04, 2014: "Jelly Belly - Endangered Species Series" Now Open!
This unique show in The Museum’s Science Gallery includes five portraits from the Jelly Belly Art private collection — each a sweet replica of an exotic species rendered in colorful Jelly Belly® beans. It is sponsored locally by Hair On The Avenue.

These mosaic-like portraits, handmade entirely from thousands of colorful Jelly Belly jelly beans, include the Rockhopper Penguin, Great Green Macaws, Hawksbill Sea Turtle, Grizzly Bear and Bengal Tiger, and combine the beauty of nature with the stunning faces of these brilliant wild animals.

Additionally, as a part of this exhibition, The Museum will be displaying several taxidermy wall mounts from its own permanent collection, representing animals that are or were endangered, extinct, or protected under a conservation program.
