Big Horn Ram Fine Art Print

When Art and Science Overlap

I stumbled upon a great article in the New York Times this week.  It was on how the bighorn population in the U.S.  It has made a big comeback primarily due to some surprising partners.  The efforts of wildlife scientists and hunters who pay a big premium for a hunting license.  This was a few weeks after my visit to the Portland Museum of Art’s “Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.” I was really taken with Warhol’s image of a bighorn sheep and stood for a while admiring it.  I have nothing too deep here, but I am glad to know that the efforts to save this great animal are taking hold and hopefully we will not be restricted to seeing them only in a museum or a zoo.
