    Please join us in celebrating the exhibition opening for Harmless Hunter: Charles M. Russell’s Wildlife Art. Known as the “Cowboy Artist,” Russell nevertheless painted, drew, and sculpted various western animals, among them the grizzly bear, the deer, and the buffalo, throughout his long and storied career. Russell’s works also address more problematic environmental themes like the rapid changes wrought by the onset of settlement, economic development, and near decimation of wild game in the American West. This exhibition will feature over 40 works of art by Charles M. Russell.

    The evening will start promptly at 5:30 p.m. when guests will have the opportunity to hear from Adam Harris, Petersen Curator of Art and Research at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
