Artist Of The Year
What is an Artist of the Year?
The Artist of the Year program began in 1979 when the Center was trying to accumulate enough money to build its own building. One of its supporters suggested that the Center should give wildlife prints as thank-you gifts to members who joined for $100 or more. That program has been maintained ever since.
Many prominent and outstanding artists have been willing to be the Artist of the Year and donate prints of a wildlife painting or photo, which they had done, or were willing to do especially for the Wildlife Center. The many bird and mammal prints, which hang on our walls are former Artist of the Year prints, and are far more valuable than the original $100 given to acquire it as a thank-you.
2012 Artist of the Year: Jayne Stenstrom

The print will be available for new and renewed memberships dues of $100 or more. A larger canvas version of the print will be available for a donation of $250 only by specific request, as the canvas print is a special order. Both will be on display at the Wildlife Center. Act now! We only have 150 prints and canvas prints are limited.
Prints available in the spring.
