The exhibition, ANIMAL GROUPS, will be displayed from July 2 to September 5, 2021.  This exhibition is an edition of ANIMALS IN ART, which was originally produced to celebrate the holidays some years ago at The Miami Metro Zoo.  This edition has been custom curated by Dr. David J. Wagner for the Hansen Museum in Logan, Kansas to celebrate re-opening after renovating.  Instead of featuring just one work per artist, this edition features 9 groups by 9 artists, each represented by five thematically-related works to afford visitors the opportunity to experience the breadth and depth of each artist’s specialized subject matter, treatment, and expression.

Portrayed in acrylics, oil, and bronze, the menagerie includes favorites such as horses, cows, cats, dogs, goats, and chickens.  More exotic species such as lions, elephants, monkeys, lizards, and striking avian species are also included.  Animal Groups features 46 masterpieces by well-known and admired artists who focus and specialize in capturing the essence and personalities of animals.

ANIMAL GROUPS is produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., David J. Wagner, Ph.D., Curator/Tour Director,
