The Tallahassee World Wide Sketchcrawl members meet at the Tallahassee Museum for sketching occasionally. This is a big park-like environment featuring spacious natural habitats for varieties of mostly local wild animals. Many of these wonderful animals have been rescued or are in need of special/medical care provided by expert staff and volunteers. The museum grounds also feature many original historic buildings moved here from other locations including the Princess Murat's home, a church and schoolhouse. Miles of trails punctuated by sculptures take you through natural wetlands . A farm with beautiful domesticated animals is maintained by staff and volunteers. Specialists in costume demonstrate the old ways of life and share their deep historical knowledge. All year we enjoy the various exhibits and activities of the museum galleries. The Art and Education Director Natasha Hartsfield has been a great help to sketchcrawl. Curators Linda Deaton and Sarah Wagoner have honored us with two exhibits. Thank you, Museum staff!
This year World Wide Sketchcrawl coincided with the Museum's "Halloween Howl", hence some creepy decorations along the trails.
