Paintings

Barber made twelve paintings for the Wallach Orientation Center, which introduces visitors to the key concepts presented in the Museum's fossil halls: the Hall of Vertebrate Origins, the David H. Koch Dinosaur Wing, and the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing of Mammals and Their Extinct Relatives. The paintings were removed in September 2015 when the Museum began to renovate the Center.
