Event Description
Chief Curiosity Correspondent for the Field Museum in Chicago, Emily Graslie is celebrated for her popular YouTube show “The Brain Scoop,” which explores behind-the-scenes of the natural history museum. Her reports from the field range from romantic ants to skinning a wolf to odd museum jobs. Graslie majored in studio art at the University of Montana where she discovered her passion for zoological museums during a visit to the University’s museum to practice her sketching.
