On display at National Eagle Center, May through August 2018, four Minnesota artists, Tim Turenne, Scot Storm, Michael Sieve and Jim Hautman, will showcase a variety of their duck stamp art including a handful of original stamp paintings. These artists have over 75 winning stamp designs between them.

Each year hunters are required to purchase stamps as part of hunting licenses. In 1934 the Federal Duck Stamp program was created to raise funds for natural habitat management to guarantee the future of duck hunting. The program has proven very popular and is known for its stunning stamp art. Many states have their adopted their own stamp programs that feature other wildlife including fish, pheasant, and other small game animals.
