Invisible Boundaries: Exploring Yellowstone’s Great Animal Migrations

This special exhibition focuses on the migrations of elk and other charismatic, wide-ranging wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The long-term conservation of Yellowstone’s migratory wildlife depends on the actions of landowners and other stakeholders far beyond national park borders. Invisible Boundaries features stunning photographs and video, interactive migration maps, cultural objects, and original artwork by James Prosek.

Invisible Boundaries opened in the Center’s special exhibitions gallery on June 1, 2016, and remains on display at least through the end of 2016.

Invisible Boundaries is organized by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, along with its Draper Natural History Museum and Whitney Western Art Museum, in partnership with Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies, University of Wyoming’s Wyoming Migration Initiative, and Split Rock Studios. The exhibition received support from numerous generous donors.
The exhibition springs from a research grant awarded to Arthur Middleton and Joe Riis through the 2013 Camp Monaco Prize under a partnership among the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-USA, Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Draper Natural History Museum, and University of Wyoming’s Biodiversity Institute.

GLOCK Makes History: The Birth of the Polymer Handgun Market

While GLOCKS are common today, the history of GLOCK, Inc. is fairly recent. Despite its infancy, GLOCK’S contribution to firearms history is no less significant than manufacturers that have been in business for hundreds of years.

This special exhibition is now on display in the Coors Theater in honor of GLOCK’s 30th Anniversary in the United States. Inside, visitors find a timeline of GLOCK firearms, embellished GLOCKS, and prop guns used for movie and television—including in the television series Longmire.
