AMERICAN DECOY: The Invention
Opens February 9
The Museum is excited to showcase the largest in-house curated decoy show in our history, which will highlight decoys from our own collection!
From the earliest devices luring waterfowl from the air, decoys have provided sustenance for nearly a millennia. The trajectory of this ingenious craft has evolved into a sophisticated art form which speaks to hunters and artisans alike. "AMERICAN DECOY: The Invention" will feature objects from the Museum's extensive permanent collection as well as other important works from local collectors, the Shelburne Museum and the Illinois State Museum.
