JACKSON, Wyo. — The National Museum of Wildlife Art’s status as an Art Bridges Foundation partner qualified the Museum to receive $60,500 in COVID-19 relief funding from Art Bridges’ $5 million dollar Bridge Ahead Initiative.

The philanthropic vision behind this initiative is forward-thinking, with two phases of pandemic support for partner museums that seek to engage their community with American art.

“The National Museum of Wildlife Art is incredibly grateful to the Art Bridges Foundation for its dedication to the arts and for helping the Museum continue to fulfill its mission, to explore humanity’s relationship with nature through art, during this challenging time,” says Dr. Tammi Hanawalt, the Museum’s Curator of Art.
