The most viewed artist in the world isn’t who you’d think

Terry Chase may be the most viewed artist in the country or even the world. He’s been in the business of making natural history exhibits for 40 years and his work is in over 250 museums and nature centers. His most recent work was done at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Along with 20 other marine animals, Chase Studio created a 50 foot replica of “Phoenix”, a North Atlantic right whale – she’s so big you could walk inside her without hitting your head. It took them 2 weeks to install it in the Ocean Hall. Check out the report that CBS did here.
