MCA Talk: Emily Graslie


Tuesdays are always FREE for Illinois residents.


Emily Graslie, Chief Curiosity Correspondent at the Field Museum and host/writer of the science YouTube channel "The Brain Scoop," joins us for a discussion on art, digital media, and the natural world.

About the Speaker

Emily Graslie's relationship with science began as an internship with The University of Montana Zoological Museum while earning her BFA in painting. What started off as a means to practice scientific illustration developed into a love of skeletal preparation and an interest in the inner workings of natural history museums. In January of 2013, Graslie launched her YouTube channel, "The Brain Scoop", which aims to share the wonderful inner and outer workings of natural history museums. She now hosts the show at The Field Museum in Chicago and is their first-ever Chief Curiosity Correspondent, where she uses a variety of new media to share The Field's stories with passionate learners from all over the world.
