CT: Fairfield County-Stamford-Stamford Nature Center (Bendel Mansion Special Event)

Are you a Biophiliac?

Biophilia- literally means “the love of life” and the living world such as nature. If you are a Biophiliac the exhibit at the Bendel Mansion is quite impressive.

Biophilia: A Dialogue with Art, Nature and Science from October 1, 2020 to January 10, 2021.

The Stamford Museum and Nature Center describes in the link below that Psychoanalyst Erich Fromm defined biophilia as “the passionate love of life and all that is alive.” Artist, naturalist, and New York Times bestselling author Christopher Marley is known for his unique ability to reveal the obscure beauty in nature and in this extraordinary exhibition creates a visual experience of the love we all have for life.

The exhibit includes artistic colorful and mosaic capture of nature to include beetles, butterflies, snakes , parakeets. It shares we don’t only love nature because it’s beautiful but because we are a part of it.

The Bendel Mansion was originally built by the fashion designer and department store owner Henri Bendel around 1929. Unfortunately he died unexpectedly in 1936. Eventually purchased by the Stamford Nature Center, the mansion holds changing exhibits and special functions. The circa 1850s horses water fountain in the backyard has been the backdrop for many as has the welcoming sunroom.

Admission to the nature center includes the museum exhibit. If you are a Biophiliac you will surely enjoy everything else the nature center also has to offer for which a separate blog with its offerings is being written.


I am a proud Biophiliac! Follow me for other opportunities to be one with nature.
