About the Donors

This wonderful art collection was made possible through the generosity of the William and Erlene Carmody family. William Carmody graduated from Michigan Tech in 1961 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. His father, Donald W. Carmody, and son, Donald E. Carmody, are also both engineering graduates of Michigan Tech.

William Carmody noted that because Krumrey is an artist from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and his paintings feature Michigan scenes and wildlife, Michigan Tech is a fitting place for this exhibit. The School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science and Michigan Technological University are grateful for the gift of such a fine collection.

Make a Gift—Appreciating wildlife art often goes hand in hand with a desire to learn more about our natural resources. To make a gift to encourage our students in their education or to enhance the art collection, please contact Chris Hohnholt at (906) 487-2417 or cahohnho@mtu.edu.

Environmental History and Wildlife in Carved Murals and Bronze Sculptures

Wood Murals

Wood Murals

Fourteen beautifully handcrafted wood murals grace the walls of the School. Each mural, carved by Grayling artist Terry L. Dickinson, depicts a scene of relevance to our nation’s environmental history. Funds generated from the sponsorship of murals by companies and individuals help support the School’s scholarship programs.

Bronze Sculptures

Bronze Sculptures

The School’s art collection includes two bronze sculptures. “Timber Cruiser," a wolf, commemorates a gift to the School by benefactor Bonnie B. Robbins. Her gift provides educational support to students studying principles in sustainable-forestry practices.

A bronze replica of fourteen-year-old moose antlers from Isle Royale is also on display. They are a gift from Mesa Technical College in Tucumcari, New Mexico.
