Brukner Nature Center invites you to enjoy the artwork of John Ruthven.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, John’s works are housed in the Smithsonian, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, the Roger Tory Peterson Institute and the Cincinnati Museum Center.  His originals hang in the White House, the Hermitage, the Neil Armstrong Space Museum and the Ohio State Capitol Rotunda.  In 2004 he received the Medal of Arts for his “impeccably accurate and unfailingly beautiful wildlife art and in recognition of his contributions as an artist and naturalist to conserving our natural treasures”.  Mr. Ruthven has created an original Carolina chickadee painting for Brukner Nature Center.  The original will forever reside at the nature center, however, 250 limited edition signed and numbered prints will be available for $125 (cash or check).  Additional Ruthven artwork is available for purchase, with 25% of the proceeds supporting the care and husbandry of our Wildlife Ambassadors.

BNC Members free, non-members are just $2.50/person Monday-Saturday from 9:00am-5:00pm.  Sundays are free for everyone.
