Conservation Art Gallery

Exploring a variety of wildlife conservation stories

About the Exhibit

Long Term Installation

Expanding on the long-lived Bison Gallery installation, this exhibit explores a variety of conservation art 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. Conservation pioneers including Theodore Roosevelt, Aldo Leopold, John James Audubon, John Muir, and others started a movement that would determine the way future generations experience wildlife and natural resources.

American wildlife artists have captured the positive and negative results of conservation by depicting wildlife still found today, as well as animals that are simply a memory. In some instances, paintings and illustrations are the only record of certain species that we have today. Although significant effort has been made in the past few centuries, there is still much to be done and many creatures are still in need of our assistance.

Branching out from the fauna of North America, this conservation art installation features conservation stories from across the globe, presenting conservation art and information about animals ranging from the American Bison to the African Elephant.

Generously sponsored by Gina & Dick Heise, McGee Foundation, Tally & Bill Mingst, and Marcia & Mike Taylor.
