COTUIT – The Cahoon Museum of American Art recently announced the opening of an upcoming exhibition called “Julie Child and the Art of Biological Illustration”, an exhibit celebrating the life and art of the famous Woods Hole artist, illustrator, and educator from September 20 to December 22, 2023.

The exhibition will feature examples of her early work in projects for the Marine Biological Laboratory, trade tools showcasing the evolution of professional drawing techniques during Child’s lengthy career, and drawings from her extensive personal collection as well as samples from her varied entomological collection that served as inspiration for her work.
