In July the National Museum of Wildlife Art saw the unveiling of Simon Gudgeon’s iconic sculpture Isis at their Sculpture Trail in Jackson Hole.
The piece is the only monumental sculpture by a British sculptor to be installed in the Trail. The vast landscape and dramatic backdrop of the Sleeping Indian Mountain contrasts beautifully with the smooth style and lines of Isis, the goddess of nature, and the sheer expanse and ruggedness of the landscape that she nestles in brings a new dimension to the piece.
The new outdoor Sculpture Trail was realised after a generous donation by Debbie Peterson in memory of her husband Jim, who loved the arts. It will bring a whole new dimension to the museum by placing large sculptures outdoors where the changing seasons and different times of day will make them an ever-changing event.
