The National Museum of Wildlife Art collects and preserves artworks featuring animals and makes them publicly accessible. Its collection boasts more than 5,000 works of art dating as far back as 2500 B.C. and includes a range of artistic genres and mediums. With a special emphasis on artists and animal life from the United States, the museum holds works by Georgia O’Keeffe, Albert Bierstadt, George Catlin, and many others. The unique focus of its collection encourages viewers to consider art within the context of the natural sciences like ecology. The NEH has helped the National Museum of Wildlife Art preserve its nationally-significant collection. With grant funding, the museum has purchased environmental monitoring equipment and light filters, ensuring that these works of art are cared for and remain on view.
