About the Installation
The Museum preserves and exhibits the largest public collection Carl Rungius' work in the United States. Widely regarded as the preeminent painter of North American wildlife, Rungius began his career in Wyoming, not far from the Museum’s location. Later in life, he spent the majority of his summers in Banff, Alberta, painting the vast Canadian Rockies and plentiful populations of big horn sheep, mountain goats, grizzly bears, and moose.
