The program is free. Sign up at the Museum Information Desk beginning at 10:00 a.m. on the day of the program. Arrive early to reserve your spot—spaces often fill up.

Discover the story of Clara the celebrity rhino in this cheer-along, sing-along experience led by storyteller Victoria Burnett.

Marvel at Jean-Baptiste Oudry's 15-foot-wide, 10-foot-tall painting Rhinoceros as you retrace Clara's steps from orphanhood in northeast India to superstardom throughout Europe. Learn how the 5,000-pound creature got her name and how she inspired affection and wonder across Europe. Why did she shed her horn? How many orange peels and loaves of bread did she munch in a day? What was the "rhino" hairstyle she inspired?

After the story, roam the galleries coming eye to eye with the other exotic life-size animals in the exhibition Oudry's Painted Menagerie, from the commanding cassowary to the aristocratic antelope.
