Exploring Wildlife Art

Exploring Wildlife Art – National Museum of Wildlife Art Gallery Reinstallation will feature a new art of nature gallery layout with engaging new stories exploring humanity’s relationship with wildlife and nature. The installations will present old favorites, like Robert Bateman’s Chief, alongside never-before-seen acquisitions. Emphasis will be placed on the art and history of this region, including the groundbreaking work of figures like Thomas Moran, whose magnificent paintings of Yellowstone helped convince congress to create the world’s first national park. Looking further at the history of North American art, Native American birdstones dating from 2500 b.c. will complement Euro-American painting and sculpture from the 1800s and 1900s displaying the beauty and bounty of a continent filled with amazing populations of wildlife. Other galleries will look at how European global exploration and the work of Charles Darwin influenced the way we see wildlife today; the development of Carl Rungius into the world’s premiere painter of North American wildlife; and how modern artists like Georgia O’Keeffe, incorporated wildlife into their exploration of the boundaries of art. Rotating exhibits of living artists, ranging from traditional to contemporary in style, will round out this reinstallation that is sure to delight as it engages us in new ways of exploring wildlife 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.
