Go Artfully Wild!
Artists For Conservation

International Exhibit of Nature in Art


March 13 - May 23, 2021

Special exhibitions are included with museum admission.

Exhibition Overview

Leap, dash or soar with us into a world of vibrant color, meticulous precision and artistic passion for animal conservation. Artists for Conservation International Exhibit of Nature in Art features 60 paintings and sculptures that awaken our responsibility to conserve the diversity and wonder of our natural world.

Paintings and sculptures tell stories of natural diversity that is being lost and human factors affecting it. Art can play a critical role in informing and emotionally connecting the public to wildlife and driving a change for the better.

Artists for Conservation (AFC) is the world’s leading group of artists dedicated to supporting the environment. With a network of over 500 nature and wildlife artists spanning five continents and 27 countries, exhibition organizer AFC is a driving force in a global educational movement for conservation.
