Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art
Time: 5pm-7pm Location: Welcome Gallery Description: Robert W. Hines was a wildlife artist who embodied the visual aspects of the federal conservation movement. This exhibit draws from an important collection of works donated to the museum by John and Frances Juriga of Elmyra, NY, longtime collectors, biographers, and enthusiasts of Hines’ work. As an illustrator, Hines was responsible for iconic and educational images of American wildlife throughout his decades of work with the United States Fish & Wildlife Service (U.S.F.W.S.) in the mid-twentieth century. His legacy is as both an artist and a steward of nature, who strove to bring the beauty of nature to the American public so that they could better understand and therefore protect it.
