The Best of the West
The scenic beauty and unique wildlife of the North American West has inspired countless artists — and the conservationists who have worked for more than a century to protect these resources for future generations. As the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies marked its 100th year, we proudly to launched “Spirit of Western Wildlife” — an exhibition that celebrates all our states and provinces and the creativity of the people who call them home.
Artists across the West submitted works to be considered for this event — explore the pieces that participated in the gallery below. The “Spirit of Western Wildlife” was a feature at WAFWA’s 100th Anniversary Kickoff Celebration on July 13, 2022 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Participants at the celebration voted for their favorite piece to select the Best in Show. A silent online auction of the generous art donations was held during the celebration, and proceeds will benefit conservation programming.
