Description:

Robert Hines (1912-1994) was the former staff artist for the United States Fish and Willife Service (USFWS). Self-taught, Hines began his career with the Ohio Division of Conservation and Natural Resources in 1939. He designed the 1946 Federal Duck Stamp. After joining the USFWS, he coordinated the annual competition for over thirty years, earning the nickname “Mr. Duck Stamp Contest.” Hines became the vehicle through which millions of citizens learned about their natural heritage. Come learn about our National Wildlife Artist, his legacy in the art of conservation, and view over 50 pieces of his work.
