Werner Wildlife Museum Art Show And Open House November 21st
Casper College’s Werner Wildlife Museum will host a special art show and open house on Friday, Nov. 21 from 3 to 6 p.m., which is free and open to the public.
“Something Wild” will feature artistic works from employees and students of Casper College.
India Hayford, museum assistant said,
“Some of the art work that will be on display includes a trio of swans made out of 1500 individually folded pieces of origami paper, ceramics, porcelain, photographs, drawings, oil paintings and a huge wreath of roses and bones,”
Activities for children during the art show will include rock painting, designing animal masks, and creating individual wildlife collages. There will also be a community art project in the form of a collage of wildlife pictures and found objects and each person, adult or child, who adds at least three items to the collage can enter to win the completed piece of art.
Other activities during the open house include tours of the museum, the life history of the museum’s bobcat “Gypsy,” the announcement of the winning names of the antelope fawns now on display in the downstairs diorama, and the announcement of this year’s Werner’s Volunteer of the Year, Art Van Rensselaer.
