We, at the Peabody Museum, are embarking on an unprecedented event to move an original James Perry Wilson diorama to our museum.  Michael Anderson, our museum preparator, will be building the three-dimensional foreground to blend with the painted background.  The diorama depicts the annual spring warbler migration at the sand dunes of Point Pelee, Ontario.  Michael will work on the diorama in the exhibit hall on the first floor of the museum starting February 27th through April 25th.   The title of the exhibit is: “A Diorama Takes Shape: Bringing the Genius of James Perry Wilson To Life”.  Michael will describe his work in this  blog, even prior to the opening of the exhibit, so you can read about his progress and what goes into making a natural history diorama.
