Yoga on the Trail
Thu, August 4, 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Top Jackson Hole yoga instructors conduct weekly summer classes outside on the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Sculpture Trail. Participants will feel inspired doing Sun Salutations and Downward Dogs as they look across the grand vista of the National Elk Refuge. In a trend as big as the outdoors, yoga classes from coast to coast have been moving out of the studio and into nature. Yogis will enjoy impressive views that include plenty of big sky and mountain drama from the trail’s perch overlooking the National Elk Refuge. It’s inspiring to connect two ancient art forms—visual art inspired by artists over the centuries, and the art of yoga, ensuring healthy mind, body and spirit. Free.

Aesop compiled fables originally have been passed down through oral tradition. They were among the first illustrated books to be produced, the earliest of which were produced in Bamberg, Germany, in 1461. “Aesop’s Fables” is a collaborative project curated by Associate Curator of Art and Research, Bronwyn Minton. This exhibit will be in keeping with the projects that Minton has been creating in Jackson over the past 13 years.

Sandy Scott Retrospective
Sat, October 22, 9:00AM - Sat, April 16, 5:00PM

Sandy Scott received her formal art training at the Kansas City Art Institute and later worked as an animation background artist in the motion picture industry. She turned her attention to etchings and printmaking in the 1970’s and to sculpture in the 1980’s. Born in Dubuque, Iowa in 1943 and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she works today in Lander, Wyoming in a studio near the foundry that casts her bronzes. She also maintains studios on Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada, and in the mountains of northern Colorado. Sandy is an avid outdoorswoman who loves to hunt and fish. She has made 16 trips to Alaska as well as Europe, Russia, China and South America. Sandy believes that to be a good artist, she must conduct field work to know their subjects and accurately present their subjects to the viewer. Having experienced and lived what she depicts, her work is unquestionably authentic. More about this exhibit
