New & Exciting Exhibitions October 9, 2012 | By Adam Harris
October is here and that means we are rehanging our changing exhibit galleries with new and exciting exhibitions. First off the block is Wildlife of the American West: Works on the Paper from the Original Collection. Many people may not remember that the Museum used to exist on the Jackson Town Square (in the space currently occupied by Moo’s Ice Cream and the Wilcox Gallery, for readers who know Jackson).
Many people might also not remember that the original name of the Museum was the Wildlife of the American West Art Museum or that it focused primarily on the charismatic creatures that call this region home. When the Museum moved to its current facility in 1994, it changed its name to the National Museum of Wildlife Art. This exhibit looks back at some of the great works on paper the Museum acquired during its seven years on the Town Square.
