Inspired by nature and his 60 pet birds, Hunt Slonem is renowned for his distinct neo-expressionist style. He is best known for his series of bunnies, butterflies and tropical birds, as well as his large-scale sculptures and restorations of forgotten historic homes.

Slonem’s works can be found in the permanent collections of 250 museums around the world, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Whitney, the Miro Foundation and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

His work has been showcased internationally hundreds of times but Slonem’s most ambitious project has been his mission to save America’s often forgotten historic buildings.

Museum members are invited to join us for coffee and to hear from the artist himself before viewing HUNTOPIA.

This event is free for Museum members. Guests are welcome to attend for a small fee.
