What a great honor for a great artist! Robert Glen and the Mustangs of Las Colinas make Irving proud.
It is with immense pride that we announce that Robert Glen was awarded the Rungius Medal at the recent annual art show at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson Hole, USA. It is very apt that Robert should get this award considering his lifetime commitment to wildlife and art just before his 80th birthday.
The Rungius Medal, named in honor of renowned artist Carl Rungius, is presented from time to time by the National Museum of Wildlife Art to individuals who have made lifetime or extraordinary contributions to the artistic interpretation and preservation of wildlife and its habitat. In establishing the Rungius medal, it is the intention of Trustees to recognize outstanding individuals and organizations across fields ranging from the fine arts to the natural sciences. Symbolized by a beautiful, specially designed gold medal, the Rungius Medal is the Museum’s highest honor.
