New in Florida
The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art has opened in the heart of St. Petersburg’s downtown, blocks from the Museum of Fine Arts, the Dalí Museum and the planned Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement.
Tom and Mary James’ museum will feature roughly 400 pieces of art, including sculptures, paintings and Native American jewelry depicting life in the Wild West.
An astonishing 98% of artists to be featured in the new museum are currently alive. Tom and Mary chose to support living artists so that they could make their earnings solely from their creative works.
In addition to its extensive collection of artwork, the James Museum aims to educate visitors on American history. There will be youth and adult education programs focusing on the lives of Native Americans and pioneers, as well as cowboys and cowgirls.
Admission tickets are $18 general; $15 students/military/seniors 65+; $10 for ages 7-18.

Wyoming Safari

The Wort Hotel has partnered with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris to offer the Wyoming Wildlife package. This package includes a two-night stay in the Wort’s Deluxe Guest Room and a half-day wildlife safari.
Valid on October 7-November 21 stays. Package rates start from $559, exclusive of park entrance fees or gratuity.
