The Class of 1954 Environmental Sciences Center (ESC) is an ideal location to showcase works of natural history art and scientific illustration in the natural sciences.

The Yale Peabody Museum is looking for artists willing to exhibit their work for up to 6 months in the ESC. The exhibition space across from the William Robertson Coe Ornithology Library in the ESC’s first floor corridor is a well-lit area accessible to the Yale community, including faculty, students, and researchers from around the world, and other vistors to the Peabody’s collections.
