JACKSON HOLE, WY.- National Museum of Wildlife Art patrons have the opportunity to hear not one but two experts discussing the museum’s summer offerings at a special Summer Exhibitions Reception on July 9. Martin “Bubba” Wood, publisher and owner of Dallas art gallery Collectors Covey, will talk about wildlife art collectors Curtice and Bob McCloy, and children’s literature expert Philip Nel will lecture on the work of author/illustrator Dr. Seuss.

“We are honored to have two such prestigious speakers to provide a deeper understanding of the remarkable artworks we have on display in these summer exhibitions,” says Zeenie Scholz, the museum’s Director of Marketing.

The McCloy family holds one of the most significant collections of contemporary wildlife art in the nation, including multiple paintings by Robert Kuhn, Ken Carlson and Tucker Smith. Wood will offer insight on the collection, subject of the just-released book Patrons Without Peer – The McCloy Collection. To coincide with the book’s publication, 31 pieces from the collection are on display at the museum through September 11 in “Patrons Without Peer: Selections from the McCloy Collection,” offering a rare chance to view masterworks never before publicly exhibited together.

Original artwork created for The Lorax, Dr. Seuss’s cautionary tale of greed and consumerism wreaking environmental devastation, is on display at the museum through September 7 in “The Lorax: Original Illustrations by Dr. Seuss.” Dr. Nel, Professor of English and Director of the Program in Children’s Literature at Kansas State University and author of two books about Seuss, will speak to Seuss’s political message in “ ‘A Person’s a Person:’ The Politics of Dr. Seuss.”
