Duck Stamp Art | November 14 through December 20

11/14/2007 - Duck Stamp Art | November 14 through December 20

Each years Duck Stamp design is chosen through a federal art competition. This years top entries will be on exhibit at the San Bernardino County Museum from November 14 through December 20, the first showing of these exquisite paintings on the West Coast. The exhibit, Duck Stamp Art, is free to the public with museum admission.

This year, the winner of the Duck Stamp Contest is Joe Hautman from Plymouth, Minnesota. Hautman has won the Federal Duck Stamp contest twice before, in 1991 and 2001. Though he holds a Ph.D. in Physics, hes always loved art. It was his win in 1991 that had encouraged him to pursue art professionally.

Duck Stamps are not postage stampsthey are revenue stamps sold annually to licensed waterfowl hunters. Proceeds from the sale of duck stamps are the single largest source of revenue for the purchase and conservation of wetlands in the United States. Many of the more than 540 national wildlife refuges have been paid for all or in part by Duck Stamp funds. Since 1934, Federal Duck Stamps have generated more than $670 million used to preserve more than 5.2 million acres of wetlands habitat in the United States.

Hautman will be present at the museums Wildlife Art Festival, which will take place on Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18. Two dozen prominent wildlife artists will exhibit their paintings, sculptures, carvings, and limited edition prints in the museums Hall of History and Schuiling Gallery. The festival is organized by the San Bernardino County Museum Association.
