Miller Art Museum Opens ‘Wildlife Biennial XX’

The Miller Art Museum’s Wildlife Biennial XX – on display through Dec. 30 – comprises 46 pieces by 24 regional artists, including three featured artists: Federico Pardo, Nancy Aten and Dan Collins.

Pardo, a Colombian biologist, photographer and filmmaker, shares eight photographic portraits of animals from around the globe, captured while on expeditions with National Geographic, DDC International and Univision, among others. He has earned two Emmys and collaborations with the Field Museum in Chicago and the Humboldt Institute in Germany. Pardo specializes in natural history, environmental and human stories.

Aten and Collins, partners in Landscapes of Place, present 16 monotype prints: colorful works that describe their relationship to the work they do as ecological restoration practitioners. Currently, they are implementing the Re-Meandering Project, a long-term ecological restoration at Sturgeon Bay’s Crossroads at Big Creek.

On the museum’s Ruth Morton Miller Mezzanine, see Ruth Wedgewood Philipon’s “Kenya Suite” from the permanent collection. It’s a series of embossed, hand-colored etchings depicting the artist’s 1985 safari experience in Kenya and her interactions with the Masai.

Admission to the exhibit at the Miller Art Museum, ​​107 S. 4th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, is free, but donations are encouraged. Masks are strongly recommended, and please practice social distancing. Call 920.746.0707 or visit to learn more.
