Artists' Techniques Rendered Habitat Dioramas Mesmerizingly Real

The dioramas in the Jill and Lewis Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals have always been splendid, but after more than a year of painstaking restoration, they look better than ever. A multi-video series documents their renovation. In these videos, Museum artists Stephen C. Quinn and Joianne Bittle Knight describe how the 3-D foregrounds and 2-D backgrounds of the dioramas were originally created.
