A sculptor of animals, Kenneth Bunn began as a taxidermist and then creator of animal displays for museums. At age 18, just out of high school, he audited medical school anatomy classes at the University of Utah and then apprenticed at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. He also had a four-year apprenticeship with Hungarian taxidermist and sculptor Coloman Jonas. Among his accomplishments are nearly 100 wax figures in genre scenes for the Old West Wax Museum in Thermopolis, Wyoming. Subjects include Buffalo Bill, the Lewis & Clark Expedition, John C. Fremont and Charles Russell. Then Bunn started his own commercial art business of making animal displays for museums. Continuing to sculpt on his own, he had a focus on his own work that began to take precedence, especially when he won a bronze medal at the National Sculpture Society Show in New York. His studio has been a warehouse in Denver. Source
