Expanded Carmody Wildlife Art Exhibit to open May 3 in Michigan Tech's Noblet Forestry Building

HOUGHTON -- Michigan Tech alumnus William Carmody and his wife, Erlene Carmody, have donated 12 new limited edition wildlife prints to Michigan Tech's School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science (SFRES).

They will be on display at a grand opening of the expanded Donald W. Carmody Wildlife Art Exhibit from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 3, in the UJ Noblet Forestry Building. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.

The exhibit already includes 85 prints and five original watercolors by Michigan artist Dietmar Krumrey, as well as five prints by Roger Tory Peterson and six prints by David A. Maass. Most of the birds and mammals pictured are found in Upper Michigan, among them the wolf, ruffed grouse, gray squirrel, white-tailed deer and bald eagle.

William Carmody graduated from Michigan Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 1961. He is retired from Dow Chemical. His father, Donald W. Carmody, earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Tech in 1935, and William's son, Donald, also attended Tech, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 1991.

"The School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science acknowledges with gratitude the gift of such a fine collection," said Dean Peg Gale (SFRES).

After the grand opening, the exhibit can be viewed in the academic office area of the Noblet Building and the upper level of Horner Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
