About Bill Rice

Bill Rice creates dynamic renditions of wild birds, capturing their distinctive beauty as well as their unique characteristics. He typically incorporates some aspect of the bird's natural habitat into each piece, a practice that contributes to the life and animation of his sculpture. He has worked as a professional sculptor for nearly 38 years and his work is in the permanent collections of the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, as well as private collections in the United States and abroad. He is a member of the Society of Animal Artists. In 2007, he was the Lanford Monroe Memorial Artist-in-Residence at the National Museum of Wildlife Art and was Featured Artist at the Museum's Western Visions. Other exhibitions include Art of the Animal Kingdom, Birds in Art, and Waterfowl Festival.

What People Are Saying

If you’re anywhere near Jackson, I’d recommend that you drive 5 min out of town and visit this beautiful place. The sculptures are extraordinary and the building itself is just a unique place that looks like it grew out of the hillside.
