The Legacy Project

Original paintings by renowned artist, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, honoring the natural beauty and enduring legacy of Glacier National Park.

For a couple of years, I have been percolating ideas for a project called “Forever Glacier.”  As a Glacier Centennial Artist and with the Park so close in proximity and near to my heart, I wanted to create a series of large (usually a 30” x 40”) colorful silk paintings honoring each of the 17 large mammals and 3 additional pieces showing a groupings of all the small mammals who live or have lived in Glacier Park, where they have adequate habitat to sustain themselves.  The Park is many things to many people: for me, I feel so fortunate to be able to wander and wonder in its pristine landscape and suddenly catch site of a wolverine, a pika, a grizzly.

This unique body of work will be the heart of a major traveling exhibit used to inspire people of all ages to find a special connection with Glacier National Park.  The travelling exhibit will include 25 paintings plus a robust educational component developed to encourage folks to interact in various ways with the exhibit and give those who may never have a chance to visit in person as much of the Glacier experience as possible.
