Yellowstone to Yukon
"Yellowstone to Yukon: The Journey of Wildlife and Art is the story of an art exhibition about conservation. Since the nineteenth century, the wild beauty and the wildlife of the Yellowstone to Yukon region has inspired North Americans to behave toward nature in a generous and responsible way. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates 150 years of artistic genius and describes how art has played a central role in providing the inspiration to protect and conserve nature in one of the world's best-loved mountain regions.
The book is based on an exhibit that is the result of a multi-year collaboration between the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, Canada; artist Dwayne Harty; and the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative. A major exhibition featuring wildlife art masterpieces from the two museums' permanent collections and Dwayne Harty's specially commissioned paintings was on display at the national Museum of Wildlife Art in the summer of 2011 and at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in the summer and fall of 2012.
The show features an astonishing selection of art from a variety of perspectives. It was prepared by an international curatorial team including Adam Duncan Harris and Bronwyn Minton of the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Michale Lang of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, and Harvey Locke.....
