About the Venue

The museum was established in 1957 by the Blauvelt-Demarest Foundation, a legacy of the late Hiram Blauvelt, philanthropist, conservationist and collector. Through the contribution of his private wildlife art and big game collections, he hoped to promote the cultural value of wildlife art and the need for the conservation of its subjects.


About the Partnership

 

CWF is working with Mr. Fiorentino on a traveling exhibition of his artwork depicting some of New Jersey’s most endangered and vulnerable wildlife species. His evocative artwork inspires viewers through his lifelike depictions of rare wildlife in their natural surroundings. His watercolor paintings truly bring wildlife to life on paper. In doing so, his art helps to educate and engage viewers about the precipitous declines that many of these species have undergone. By putting a spotlight on these charismatic yet often-overlooked wildlife species, our partnership seeks to bring attention to the very tangible steps that people can take to save and strengthen these wildlife populations.

Rare Wildlife Revealed: The James Fiorentino Traveling Art Exhibition is sponsored by Omni Distribution, LLC, Flying Fish Brewing Company, Merrill G. & Emita Hastings Foundation, Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery, and Somerset Patriots.
