Western Visions is the National Museum of Wildlife Art's largest and longest-running fundraiser and is one of the signature events of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Top contemporary wildlife artists and collectors from around the world will come together at the Museum in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The show features a wide selection of art for sale and the money raised from this fundraiser supports the Museum. The week's events, offered at the Museum's award-winning facility across from the National Elk Refuge, draw an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering. During Fall Arts Festival (and year-round), the Museum is a hub for art lovers, wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, and more.
Historically an intent to purchase event, we are bringing the live auction back for the second time this year. The auction will include over thirty pieces by esteemed wildlife artists. The majority of these works were created specifically for this sale.Read more
