EXHIBIT: The History, Use, and Art of Waterfowl Decoys                                                

Early hunters and gatherers first discovered that waterfowl were more likely to land in areas where other birds were. Through this, the waterfowl decoy was born. This exhibit touches on the history of using decoys to hunt and features working decoys, artistic decoys, and contemporary, regionally-built decoys.

On Exhibit: January 12 – April 28
