Smokey Bear and the Art of Rudy Wendelin

Explore the extraordinary career of artist Rudolph “Rudy” Wendelin (1910 –2000), best known as the artist behind the United States Forest Service’s iconic mascot and spokesman Smokey Bear.

Shortly after WWII, Wendelin was given responsibility for the Smokey Bear project and over the course of more than three decades the artist created a more human version of the mascot, wearing a solemn expression, ranger’s hat and jeans, and carrying a shovel. Thanks to the creative efforts of Wendelin, Smokey appeared on government posters, postage stamps, first-day covers, television, magazines, and even a film. The exhibition will also include other works by Wendelin including early sketchbooks, architectural projects, and watercolors.
