05/03/13 – Sculpture Trail Welcomes Trout

Written By: Kevin Wittig @kevinswittig on Twitter

While anglers have been out in full force enjoying early season fishing in the Tetons, Wyoming high school students have been creatively using their imagination to envision trout in a new light.

The National Museum of Wildlife Art recently sponsored a statewide art competition that challenged 37 schools to turn a plain white fiberglass trout into distinctive works of art. The entire “school” of fish will be exhibited on the museum’s outdoor Sculpture Trail this weekend at the First Sunday celebration.

Cash prizes ranging from $500-$7,000 were awarded last week, with Pinedale High School capturing top prize for ts ceramic mosaic trout artwork titled “Time to Make Waves”; Encampment High School received $5,000 for second place with “Metamorphofish,” and third place and $2,000 went to Powell High School for its artwork “The Escape of Adaptation.”.

Enjoy the latest addition to the Sculpture Trail on 1st Sunday at Wildlife Art Museum & receive free admission to the museum.
