Upcoming Events


March 25, 1:00pm

With thousands of images saved on a tiny computer in your pocket, it may be hard to imagine a time when taking a photograph was a once in a lifetime occasion. In the 19th century, images of loved ones were rare, treasured keepsakes. Most popular among these magical amulets of the Victorian era was the tintype.

Visitors to “National Geographic: The Greatest Wildlife Photographs” are in for an extra treat on Saturday, March 25 at “Tintype Pop Up” with Catherine Segura. Dating from the mid-19th century, this technique uses what’s known as the wet collodion process to produce jewel-like prints of extraordinary precision when printed on tin. While cumbersome by today’s standards, wet plate collodion allowed an artist to create an image in the field using a mobile darkroom, using more durable and less costly materials than earlier photographic processes.

Today, only a handful of artists practice this technique. Catherine Segura and her father Clement, both expert antique photographers, will be offering individual portrait sittings (maximum 2 people in each photograph) in Muzeo’s historic Carnegie building. While the general public is invited to watch the process with regular museum admission, a limited number of patrons can reserve a sitting between the hours of 1:00—5:00 p.m. For $85, patrons will receive a genuine tintype print in the mail as well as digitally. To reserve your spot, please select a time slot below:

Humanity of Wolves

May 6, 1:00pm

Biologically, humans are closest to their primate relatives, but socially, we’re closer to wolves than you would ever imagine. With that understanding, it’s hoped that the negative myths that have demonized them for so long are replaced with empathy and a desire to help in protecting them, giving this incredible, keystone species a fighting chance at survival.

Join Apex Protection Project co-founders Paula Ficara and Steve Wastell as they discuss the importance of connecting people to wolves on an emotional level, while also sharing biological and ecological facts. Since its conception, Apex has helped rescue over 400 captive-born wolves and wolfdogs in need and continues to advocate for wolves in the wild through educational programming.


Admission to MUZEO is included in event ticket.
