This stop on the tour represents a unique opportunity to meet a true Jackson Hole original and view the wilderness and wildlife that inspires his art–right outside the back door. Longtime local John B. Mortensen is an internationally collected artist working in bronze, painting, and western furniture. Tucked into a wooded location off of Fish Creek Road, his home combines art, artifacts, and studio space that makes the most of the historic homestead. Hear stories of Jackson in the old days, learn how Mortensen casts his work, and enjoy this rare glimpse into a valley life founded–and richened– by place.
