Wyland: Art and Conservation

Oct 11 - Nov 7, 2010
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Known simply by one name, artist Wyland (American born in Detroit, Michigan, 1956) garnered global attention for painting large, outdoor murals of whales and other ocean life. Over the last twenty-five years his artwork has earned accolades for the artist as a leading advocate for marine resource conservation. An accomplished painter, sculptor, photographer, writer, and scuba diver, his work captures the raw power and beauty of the undersea universe.

This exhibition has been organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
