Wm Zimmerman Studio
One of America’s greatest bird artists spent the bulk of his career in Brown County surrounded by nature and the birds that he loved. On a scale with Audubon, William Zimmerman illustrated a host of important books, including The Birds of Indiana and Waterfowl of North America, along with the woodpecker volume of The Life Histories of North American Birds. He also spent a great deal of his career working with environmental groups to protect the habitats of the birds and wildlife that he loved.
The work of this meticulous artist will amaze. He used brushes with as few as three hairs. The Gallery has recreated his studio, giving the visitor an insight into the intricacy and accuracy of his work.
The exhibit is open daily and rotates continually. It is a step into nature through the eyes of a great artist. William H. Zimmerman (1937–2011)
