Current Research

Louis Habeck, Artist

The UMZM is currently assisting in the research of photographer and sculptor Louis Habeck, who has been commissioned by a public mall in Michigan to create over seventy life-like birds and mammals for an interactive Imaginarium Castle!  Louis lives and works in Billings, Montana, but the UMZM has continued to play an imperative part in informing the realism of his sculptures through digital correspondence.
