About Western Visions®

The museum's largest and longest-running fundraiser, with a variety of exciting events.

Western Visions® is the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s largest and longest-running fundraiser and is one of the signature events of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Top contemporary wildlife artists – and collectors – from around the world will be congregating at the Museum in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The show features a wide selection of art for sale and the money raised from this fundraiser supports the Museum. The week’s events, offered at the Museum’s award-winning facility across from the National Elk Refuge, draw an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering. During Fall Arts Festival (and year-round), the Museum is a hub for art lovers, wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, and more.

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.
