Support Our Programs
2016 offers many ways to show your support of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. We invite you to sponsor top-quality exhibitions and educational programs, which define the Museum as a cultural gem in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Our generous sponsors enable the Museum to reach an average of more than 80,000 visitors each year, serving local citizens and visitors, adults and children.
Exhibition Sponsorship start at $5,000
Expanding on the long-lived Bison Gallery installation, this exhibit will explore a variety of conservation stories. Throughout history, America has prided itself on its vast land and resources, the aesthetic beauty of its mountains and plains, and the freedom associated with its expansiveness. It took a great deal of work to create a movement to protect and preserve the land and wildlife that created the country’s identity.
Western Visions Sponsorship Opportunities
Considered the premier event sponsor, the Presenter will be featured at all events and in all associated promotion including two pages in the catalog, invitation, website, national advertising, exhibition title wall, and will receive 10 priority badges to all events and 10 complimentary Museum passes. This special sponsor will be offered a docent tour of the exhibition and lunch with our featured artists in the Rising Sage Café.
Show & Sale: $25,000
Fund the Western Visions Miniatures and More Show & Sale, replete with buyers and artists, silent auctions, and associated refreshments.

Jewelry & Artisan Luncheon: $15,000

Benefactors Suite: $10,000
The Benefactors Suite provides a needed respite from the busy social call of the show. The Museum devotes the Members Lounge and Gallery to significant supporters of Western Visions, furnished with hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Each Benefactors Suite Sponsor will be acknowledged on the Benefactors Suite signage, in our catalog, website, and receive two priority badges with access to all events, and two complimentary Museum passes.
This week of gala events would not be possible without the renowned group of volunteers who come from across the United States to take part in fine art sales and interpretation. Sponsorship at this level directly funds volunteer activities and luncheon. The Volunteer Sponsor will be recognized in our catalog, website, and receive two priority badges with access to all events, and two complimentary Museum passes.
