with Gary Staab

Hatfield Room, Hatfield Library
Willamette University
900 State Street SE, Salem, Oregon

Please join us for our upcoming lecture!

Paleoartist, Gary Staab recreates past life through sculpture. Staab produces life-like models of archaeological and paleontological subjects for museum exhibits, films and books.. These sculptures are a true blend of art and science. He collaborates with scientists, to create snapshots of the past. This process is a hybrid technique that uses 3D printing and traditional sculpting. He will walk thru a number of projects that include creating a replica of the mummy of King Tutankhamen, Inca mummies from Peru and his work on a replica of the Iceman, recently featured in a NOVA film documentary. 

As usual, this lecture is free and open to the public!

AIA members are also welcome to join us at a no-host dinner before the lecture in The Goudy-Lee Dining Hall, starting at 5:50 PM.

This will give you all a chance to meet the lecturer personally!

Staab’s has created work for The National Geographic Society, The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, The Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science among many others. You can see images of his models at staabstudios.com/
