Following is a list of artists who are currently working or have worked in various media and have an interest in nonhuman primates. Many of these artists submitted work for the exhibit Primates In Art and Illustration which was held at the University of Wisconsin -- Madison, in conjunction with the joint congress of the International Primatological Society and American Society of Primatologists in 1996. Over eighty artists submitted works for this juried show and all were offered the opportunity to be listed on Primate Info Net, the Web site of the Wisconsin Primate Research Center which hosted the event with the Wisconsin Union Directorate.
The commemorative poster from the exhibit, featuring artwork donated by romantic realist artist Mary Sims, can be viewed at http://www.primate.wisc.edu/pin/folie.html. Purchasing/ordering information for the poster can also be found on the page.
The purpose of this listing is both to promote the depiction of nonhuman primates in art and to provide a convenient source of information for those who wish to purchase or commission their work.
Any artist whose work focuses on nonhuman primates is welcome to submit materials for this web site. Information should be similar to the attached entries, and should include an e-mail address and/or web site address (if available). A representative work should be sent either in photo or digital form.
