Exhibition open February 24 – May 5, 2024
This youth art exhibit is an annual collaboration between the National Museum of Wildlife Art & art educators from Teton County schools. The several hundred works of art on display beautifully demonstrate how students grow as artists as they move through grades K-12. Each art educator and group of students interpreted the theme Visual Poetry in their own way. The diversity of media and artistic approaches showcases the creativity of our students and the quality of art education in Teton County.
Visual poetry is a form of expression at the intersection of literature and visual art. It allows for exploration that engages multiple senses and deepens the meaning and experience of a poem or a picture. It can be graphic art made from words, words hidden within a painting, or movement expressing the rhythm of a poem. Artists and poets in this exhibit engage multiple disciplines to transcend the boundaries of visual arts and creative writing. Enjoy this unique exhibit and all the ways our K-12 artists are breaking the bounds of artistic expression.

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
