Artist Examines The "Invisible Boundaries" Of Animal Migration

Jun 20, 2018


In recent years, scientists have been astounded to learn how far large animals like elk, pronghorn and mule deer migrate in Wyoming. But a new show at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson looks at both the great and small creatures that travel to and fro to reach the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Wyoming Public Radio’s Melodie Edwards sat down with painter and writer James Prosek to talk about evolution, language and whether to name waterfalls.

Prosek published his first book, Trout: An Illustrated History, when he was only 19 years old.
