Kansas Wildlife Art Series Prints


Classics – Series 1

The Kansas Wildlife Art Series is commissioned by the Kansas Wildlife Art Council and administered by Fort Hays State University and the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays, Kansas. These gallery-quality prints are reproduced from original artwork held in the Sternberg Museum collections.

Background: The Kansas Wildlife Art Council was established by the Kansas Legislature for the purpose of establishing and overseeing a Kansas wildlife art series. Each year, artists were invited to submit paintings featuring Kansas wildlife, of a design and subject to be specified by the council, in a competition to select the current year’s artwork. The competition was suspended in 2000.

  • All prints are individually signed and numbered in a limited-edition of 1000 of each image.
  • These high-quality prints are reproduced on archival paper with overall dimensions of 18.5” x 25.5”.
  • Image size is approximately 14” x 21”.
