Excerpt about Nick Wilson from "Art and Exhibitry — the ASDM Tradition"

"(Art) has a very important part (to play in natural history museums). — I like the marrying of the two concepts of art and natural history. — I think it all adds to the special place you are when you're among these live animals, as well as the artistic aesthetics of wildlife that inspire artists to create them. — I say the live animals inspire artists to create them and the art they create creates a greater interest in the live animal."

Nick was responsible for the first artist poster collection at the museum. He is well-known for his representations of rabbits and mountain lions including the iconic George L Mountainlion 'head'. 'I've always pictured a mountain lion larger than life at the entrance to the (Desert) Museum.' Nick also has taught at the Art Institute with an emphasis on sculpture."
