Monarchs of the Plains

October 8, 2015 - May 1, 2016

In conjunction with the exhibit “Grasslands of Wyoming: Photographs by Michael Berman and Willy Sutton,” opening in November, this exhibition of approximately 60 paintings and sculptures drawn from the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s collection will highlight the diverse species inhabiting the plains from the 1800s to the present. In the early 1800s, millions of bison and other creatures roamed the plains that stretch from Canada to Mexico. Scheduled to appear in “Monarchs of the Plains” will be work by George Catlin, John James Audubon, Albert Bierstadt, Carl Rungius, Alexander Proctor, William R. Leigh, John Clymer and a generous selection of bison art and other work by living masters.
