Patty Swygert Solo Art Exhibit – I AM BISON

November 27, 2020 - November 29, 2020

Virginia based conceptual and visual sculptor and fiber artist Patty Swygert debuts I AM BISON, a solo show created especially for the National Buffalo Museum.

Inspired by the Museum’s Bison in Art 2019 juried art show, in which she participated, Patty has created over 30 two- and three- dimensional pieces celebrating the iconic National Mammal. Using a variety of materials and techniques, the works explore not only the bison’s majesty, but the peaks and lows in population, including recent restoration efforts. If you can, join us in person on Thanksgiving weekend for the opening of I AM BISON.

The museum will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 27th – 29th to view this one-of-a-kind installation. The works will also be available for sale. If you’re unable to join us in person, join us on December 4th, 6PM, for a virtual opening reception and artist talk with Patty!

I AM BISON is on view from November 27, 2020 to September 11, 2021.
