Animals: Wild and Captured in Bronze

On Extended View

Wild mustangs and majestic bison are symbols of the American West. However, many other creatures also live in the diverse habitats west of the Mississippi River. This exhibition features all kinds of wildlife that inhabit the West and the artists who have captured their likenesses in bronze.

Animals: Wild and Captured in Bronze was organized by Tacoma Art Museum and made possible through the generous support of the Haub Family Endowment.
