About the Exhibit

October 10, 2020 - January 10, 2021

This traveling exhibition is produced by Creature Conserve and featuring new works by local Jackson area artists. The mixed-media exhibition explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and the human responses to this shared territory.

Artists explored the biology of an animal, its urban ecology, and the many ways it interacts with humans, either via independent research or via collaboration with scientists working in related fields. The ultimate goal is to find new ways to encourage the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban wildlife and their habitats.

This exhibition is timely and important – noticing that continued urban sprawl creates new homes for some animals while displacing others. The expansion of our cities and towns often results in negative human-wildlife conflict. Science can provide us with guidelines for how to live in balance with urban animals. For example, if we understand coyote behavior – they follow food sources – we can avoid problems. But we need the motivation to apply these solutions to our daily lives.

What People Are Saying

We came here in the recommendation of a worker at Yellowstone. The museum itself is beautiful, nestled into the hills outside Jackson. The art is stunning. Some feel almost like photographs. Highly recommended.
