Animal Art Animals and furniture? Explore the exhibition Creature Comforts: Animals in the House to see how artists created funky furnishings inspired by animals. Afterwards, think like an interior designer as you set-up your own home or play like a curator and rearrange images of objects from the exhibition. Think like an animal as you read a book, form animal shapes like a sculptor, draw like an artist, and so much more.
