Event Details

The Stark Museum of Art is bringing the great outdoors inside with Conservation Art: Federal Duck Stamps & Prints. Started in 1934, the Federal Duck Stamp program links hunting with conservation. Sales of stamps support wildlife habitat. Choosing artists to design the stamps added visual drama. Artists’ prints increased the impact of the program. With this exhibition, the Stark Museum of Art traces the history of the Federal Duck Stamp. A set of stamps and prints, from the beginning in 1934-1935 through 2000-2001, is on view. In addition to viewing the stamps and prints, visitors can go on a virtual Duck Hunt™ and enjoy other activities. Admission to the Stark Museum and its exhibitions is free.
