Titled “Empathetic Environments: Animals as Mentors, Masks, and Mirrors.” Franklin Park Art Grove

This panel speaks to the enduring human tendency to use animals to express our desires and our fears and our divided feelings about ourselves, who, at bedrock, are animals too although we like to think of ourselves as beyond and separate from the animalistic.
