June 1 through August 19, catch a special exhibition at the National Museum of Wildlife Art that combines artwork and natural history by examining the migrations of local ungulates such as elk, pronghorn, and deer of Yellowstone National Park.

Stunning photographs, paintings, videos, and an amazing interactive map are included. These media come together to chronicle the difficult journeys herd animals face every year.

Contributors include Wildlife Ecologist Arthur Middleton, Photographer Joe Riis, Artist James Prosek, and Filmmaker Jenny Nichols.

The title comes from the idea that these migratory animals cross many “Invisible Boundaries,” including lines between national park and wilderness areas, public and private lands, and neighboring states and countries. This exhibition encourages guests to think about the complexities of wildlife and land conservation.

This exhibition was created by the Draper Natural History Museum and Whitney Western Art Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and was co-curated by Charles R. Preston, Willis McDonald, IV, Senior Curator of Natural Science and Karen McWhorter, Scarlett Curator of Western Art.
