Working Together for Wildlife: Selected Paintings, 2007-2017

Presented by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and the Pennsylvania Game Commission

Pennsylvania Lumber Museum

March 12 – December 29, 2017

In 1982, the Pennsylvania Game Commission created a program that uses the creative power of art to benefit nature. The program, Working Together for Wildlife, features a particular animal each year, alternating between birds and mammals. The Game Commission makes the artwork available in special edition prints and patches, the proceeds of which support conservation work on behalf of Pennsylvania’s rich wildlife. During the program’s three decades of operation, the artworks have also helped to teach and share the beauty of nature.

The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum is pleased to share the winning artwork from the years 2007-2016 as well as the 2017 painting.   The paintings are the original artworks created for the Working Together for Wildlife program.  Corresponding patches for select artworks are available for purchase in the Museum Store.

This exhibit is based on Working Together for Wildlife: Three Decades of Pennsylvania’s Nature in Art organized by the State Museum of Pennsylvania in 2016.
