Wildlife Art at Blauvelt

The Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum will present Art and the Animal Tour through February 10, featuring outstanding artwork and sculptures from members of the Society of Animal Artists. The museum is recognized by wildlife conservationists, artists and art lovers as one of only five museums in the U.S. to exclusively display wildlife art.

The Society of Animal Artists is an association of more than 525 talented painters and sculptors in 25 countries that work in the genre of animal art, illustrating the entire spectrum of the animal kingdom. They are dedicated to portraying our living heritage and its preservation through demonstrations, seminars, lectures and exhibitions.

The historic 1893 carriage house was founded in 1957 as a natural history museum by the Blauvelt-Demarest Foundation and serves as a legacy of the philanthropist, conservationist and collector Hiram Blauvelt, who contributed his private wildlife art and big game collections from around the world to promote the cultural value of wildlife art and the need for the conservation of wildlife and their habitats.

Admission is free, donations are welcome. Location: 705 Kinderkamack Rd., Oradell. For more information, call 201-261-0012 or visit BlauveltArtMuseum.com.
