Tusk, Horn, Flesh & Bone
Graphic Design by Asher Jay
September 20 2014 - January 18 2015
Asher Jay is a young, dynamic artist and graphic designer whose awareness-raising designs have been distributed internationally. Her main focus for the past few years has been to educate audiences about the illegal ivory trade and its damaging effects on the world’s dwindling populations of African rhinos and elephants. Her immediately striking designs convey a strong message about the destructive nature of the illegal ivory. As wildlife art, they are most closely related to something like Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species portfolio, which presents a clear social message in a visually arresting manner. This exhibit would tie into the Museum’s recent outreach to younger audiences and will connect with the Murie Center’s recent initiative, Coalition Wild, as well as to the SHIFT program being developed for 2014.
