HIGH ART: Mix’d Media gets Euro
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – When people think of Europe, they usually think old buildings and museums, not wildlife. The National Museum of Wildlife Art’s current exhibit, “Wild Wonders of Europe,” aims to change that perception and people get a chance to learn about it at the Mix’d Media event.
Each Mix’d Media event celebrates and connects to a current exhibit. “It’s a cocktail party with a purpose,” said Amy Goicoechea, associate curator of education and exhibits.
“Wild Wonders of Europe,” is a visual representation of the largest conservation initiative in Europe, Goicoechea said.
The exhibit features work from 69 European photographers that visited other countries and photographed more than 1,000 animals and plant species in 50 national parks in 48 countries.
The exhibit traveled the world and was brought to the museum by The Murie Center and Wild Foundation out of Colorado. The exhibit is a great way to connect visitors to wildlife through art and encourage conservation, Goicoechea said.
The event will have a Spanish theme and include Spanish tapas prepared by the Rising Sage Cafe, Spanish beer and wine and Spanish dance demonstrations. There will also be presentations by the Murie Center and Wild Foundation, the chance to make animals masks, and music by DJ VerT-OnE.
Mix’d Media, 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday, National Museum of Wildlife Art
