Exhibition open January 7, 2024 – February 18, 2024

This year, the student-curated project is presented by art students at Jackson Hole High School is in collaboration with students formerly at Lahainaluna High School in Lahaina, HI, currently at Maui Prep following the August 2023 wildfire.

In the words of student curators Lukiah Jaeger, Roxy Martinez, Maggie Hofmann, and Elizabeth Prince: “The destruction of communities and the environment is nothing short of tragic. When disaster strikes, whether on an emotional, physical, or ecological scale, in the moment, there is little hope to be found. But with time, aid, and a change of perspective, loss can be the beginning of something better. Through this exhibit we show what we can gain from loss in connection with the poems written by students in Lahaina, Hawaii who recently faced the destruction of their community”.

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is dedicated to exhibiting student artwork in a professional setting and amplifying the voices of youth in our community. We are proud to partner with young artists from Jackson Hole High School on this exhibit. The nature of the student-curated exhibitions are to create exhibition themes that examine our connection, appreciation and concern for nature and wildlife.  Students are given perimeters that are based on design foundations that are neutral and allow for individual student responses and personal expression.  The work is collaborative in nature and there are many voices at the table helping to steer the design of the content from the curators to the student artists.
