Rungius Sesquicentennial – Rungius Reunited and Rarely Seen RungiusMay 4, 2019 - August 25, 2019
Celebrating the 150th anniversary of wildlife painter Carl Rungius’s birth, these dual exhibitions showcase Rungius. Rungius Reunited features large-scale Rungius paintings from the National Museum of Wildlife Art alongside works on loan from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Trace the fascinating story spanning the 20th century of how these paintings made their way from the Bronx Zoo in the early 1900s, to the Jackson Lake Lodge in the 1960s, to the two main museums flanking Grand Teton National Park at the end of the century. Rarely Seen Rungius features works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection such as watercolors, drypoint prints, landscape studies, and archival materials that are rarely on view. The Museum holds the only known complete collection of Rungius engravings, the rarest of which will be displayed in this special presentation.

Transformations: Wildlife in Inuit Art and CultureThrough May 5, 2024
Through cultural stories, Transformations seeks to explore Inuit history, values, and beliefs. The exhibit is comprised of works from the permanent collection and items on loan from private collections. The hope, as it is with all exhibits, is that visitors take away a deeper appreciation of the artwork and perhaps are introduced to something that they did not know before. Most importantly, we want to bring attention to the fact that today Inuit artists are producing powerful artworks that reference histories and that, at the same time, confront contemporary issues such as conservation and environmental concerns.See the Exhibit
