21" Tall - Monument Sponsor Bronze

Join the legacy by sponsoring the outdoor monument to be installed at the entrance of the Jack O'Connor Hunting Heritage and Education Center, in Lewiston, Idaho.

“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 in May of 2022 ready to greet visitors.

The project will be supported by 100 sponsors who will each donate $4,900 and in turn each sponsor will receive a limited edition numbered bronze that is 1/4 scale of a life-size Mule deer and available in a traditional bronze finish or a colored finish. Each of those sponsors will also have their name(s) included on a cast bronze plaque displayed at the outdoor sculpture.  We are already halfway there!  It is not too late to be a part of this exciting project.

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.
