The National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Plein Air Fest 2020 will happen at www.wildlifeartevents.org, July 12 – 25, 2020.
The summer event is set to be presented virtually to give supporters the opportunity to tune in and shop safely and securely. Online visitors will be able to hear from the artists as they’ve been able to in the past. This year, rather than doing so by watching artists work on the Sculpture Trail, videos on our social media channels and website will showcase paintings in progress and interviews with the painters between July 12 and July 18.
One freshly finished work by each of the participating artists will be available for purchase. This year, all pieces will be available Buy-It-Now, at fixed prices, beginning at noon on Sunday, July 19. The sale will end on Saturday, July 25 at noon. Purchased paintings will be shipped directly to the lucky buyers.
All proceeds will benefit the National Museum of Wildlife Art and participating artists. Visit
www.wildlifeartevents.org to purchase paintings and to see the list of participating artists.
The National Museum of Wildlife Art, a nonprofit founded in 1987, is a world-class art museum holding more than 5,000 artworks representing wild animals from around the world. Featuring work by prominent artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Robert Kuhn, John James Audubon, and Carl Rungius, the Museum’s permanent collection chronicles much of the history of wildlife in art, from 2500 B.C. to the present. Built into a hillside overlooking the National Elk Refuge, the Museum received the designation “National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States” by order of Congress in 2008. Boasting the Museum Shop, interactive children’s gallery, Palate restaurant, and outdoor sculpture trail, the Museum is only two-and-a-half miles north of Jackson Town Square, and two miles from the entrance of Grand Teton National Park.
