Demons, Creatures, and Monsters – Oh My!
Mythical creatures, legendary beasts, terrifying monsters — they are supernatural, mystical, often god-like or demon-like beings, and they have fascinated us since ancient times. Even today, they continue to thrill, terrify, entertain, and inspire. And they may even be able to protect us from viruses. Learn more about these beings who populate stories, songs, and works of art.
This one-hour virtual lecture by one of our museum community speaker docents is followed by a half-hour Q&A.
