There are only a few days left to see artist-in-residence Mike Poulsen. Don’t miss this opportunity!
Cody resident Mike Poulsen began painting as a child and honed his talents while serving in the United States Marine Corps. While stationed in Hawaii, he met Larry Roberson, who became his painting instructor and mentor. Under Roberson’s tutelage, Poulsen learned the importance and power of color, and strong, streamlined design in painting. Roberson’s lessons still form the foundation for Poulsen’s artwork.
For his current project, the Yellowstone Waterfall Project, Poulsen has teamed up with Yellowstone Forever and Wyoming PBS to document the waterfalls of Yellowstone. Poulsen’s intent is to reveal these hidden beauties of Yellowstone’s backcountry, educate and inspire the public, and help promote the preservation of the area’s fragile ecological systems.
Poulsen will be painting his latest waterfalls in the Whitney through September 9, 2017, so stop by the Center and check out some of his works-in-progress!
