JACKSON, Wyo. — The National Museum of Wildlife Art announced its ongoing exhibition opening this fall, Urban Wildlife: Learning to Co+Exist. The exhibit opened Saturday, Oct. 10, and will run until Jan. 10, 2021.
The traveling exhibition is a partnership between Creature Conserve and the education department of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It features new 2-D artwork by Wyoming area artists, as well as work from the Museum’s permanent sculpture collection.
The exhibition explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and human responses to this shared territory.
Artists explore the biology of an animal, its urban ecology, and the many ways they interact with humans, either through independent research or by collaboration with scientists in related fields.
The ultimate goal of the exhibition 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.
The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Masks are required.
Urban Wildlife is sponsored by McGee Foundation, Museum Volunteers in memory of Annabelle Lerch, Jane and Steve Malashock, Barbara and Pat McClevey, Friends of the Museum, and Anonymous.
