About the Exhibit

Through April 23, 2017

“Aesop’s Fables” includes 25 local and national artists, each illustrating Aesop animals. Aesop is said to have lived about 620–560 BC and to have been a slave on the Greek Island of Samos, later freed by his master Iadmon. 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 featuring Aesop animals, and is 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. These exhibits have been highly successful in creating a sense of community, both among the artists who participate and among those who appreciate their art.

What People Are Saying

We came here in the recommendation of a worker at Yellowstone. The museum itself is beautiful, nestled into the hills outside Jackson. The art is stunning. Some feel almost like photographs. Highly recommended.
