Unveiling and dedication will take place at the Jack O'Connor Center on Saturday, June 11th, 2022.
We thank all the generous sponsors.
“The commitment one makes to excel in a chosen field is of course very personal. I have promised myself to be as faithful to nature as possible and to recreate some of the magnificent wildlife that I have been privileged to observe, admire and come to love. ” -Rick Taylor
The Jack O’Connor Center is honored to have been selected by world renowned wildlife artist, Rick Taylor, to be the site of his tenth outdoor bronze sculpture. Rick is creating a magnificent 1.25 life-size Mule deer that will grace the entrance to the Center and be unveiled Saturday, June 11th, 2022 ready to greet visitors.
The project was supported by sponsors who donated $4,900 each and in turn each sponsor received a limited edition numbered bronze that was 1/4 scale of a life-size Mule deer in a traditional bronze finish or a colored finish. Each of those sponsors will have their name(s) included on a cast bronze plaque displayed at the outdoor sculpture.
Rick grew up reading Jack’s articles and books and they were instrumental in his love for wildlife and the outdoors and the path his career has taken. He has hunted extensively and collected many of the wild sheep of the world. His art is appreciated and collected by museums and individuals worldwide. He currently lives and works with his wife, fellow artist Carole Danyluk, in the rain forest of the interior of British Columbia and takes frequent trips into the wild places to visit and learn about the animals he loves so much.
