Living Legends II, with a Special Tribute to Bob KuhnDecember 14, 2019 - August 30, 2020
Living Legends is dedicated to recognizing the strong tradition of contemporary wildlife art that continues to thrive today. Artists like Robert Bateman, Ken Carlson, Sandy Scott, and Ken Bunn, among others, have been key players in the history of this Museum, and in what many people think of when they think about wildlife art.
Since the Museum opened in 1987, the work of living artists has been an essential part of the collection. Living Legends is a revolving series of installations with new artwork presented each year honoring the work of these artists who have meant so much to us. Traditional works will be complemented with contemporary pieces, and older artists alongside younger up-and-comers… all part of the ever-evolving permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
This year, in honor of the 100th anniversary of Bob Kuhn’s birth, the exhibition includes a special selection of three paintings by Kuhn that have never before been exhibited at the Museum. Kuhn was a mentor to many living artists, and the world of wildlife art would not be what it is today without his enormous contributions to the field.
