Erdman lends a hand to world-class artist’s work
Richter Museum curator Thomas Erdman is quoted at length in a Tuesday (July 26) Green Bay Press-Gazette story about a local wildfowl artist who’s among the best there is. Gary Eigenberger of Ashwaubenon is recognized as a world-level master for his bird sculptures, which will be on display at the Neville Public Museum of Brown County through Aug. 7. As it turns out, Erdman has had quite a hand in Eigenberger’s success, loaning museum specimens and serving as a resource for the artist. Erdman, Eigenberger said, “is a walking encyclopedia on birds.” To read more about our campus connection to this amazing artist, check out the full story.
