Art History Symposium at the Coney Island Museum

A few photos from an art related panel discussion I attended at the Coney Island Museum last weekend.  The subjects ranged from pre-cinematic immersive amusements, such as the historical shows and games at Coney Island many years back, to using religion as spectacle and as art.

 View from the 2nd floor museum's window.

I couldn't stop staring at the Wooly Mammoth drawing in pencil framed on the wall behind the speakers. Nice.

Afterwards, we headed to the Natural History Museum, hoping to see the Bioluminescent FISH Show, but we were too late (they were closing in an hour). And *25$ to see the show....maybe not running back for it... So instead we walked through the different worlds set up for us to view through glass. This little guy was posing next to some deer.
