About the Exhibit

May 22, 2021 - August 22, 2021

Un/Natural Selections: Wildlife in Contemporary Art considers the diverse ways that contemporary artists employ animal imagery to address humanity’s interconnectedness and ever-changing relationship with the natural world. Comprised of approximately 50 artworks (c. 2000-2019) exclusively from the Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition offers a wide range of works in a variety of media divided into four thematic sections: Tradition, Politics, Science, and Aesthetics. These sections act as overlapping chapters, investigating the ways we use animal imagery to tackle human concerns.

Un/Natural Selections is generously sponsored by Art Bridges, Anne and Michael Moran, Long Reimer Winegar, Thomas and Elizabeth Grainger Family Charitable Fund, Maggie and Dick Scarlett Endowment, in honor of Joffa and Bill Kerr, Mays Family Foundation, and supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.

What People Are Saying

Wonderful art work combined with informative timelines. Earthly deco inside with an option for a self guided outdoor sculpture garden - worth the walk. Don’t skip the children’s art display - simply delightful.
