The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art


The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, affiliated with Salisbury University, is nestled next to Schumaker Pond in Salisbury, Maryland, surrounded by wildlife in the heart of the Atlantic Flyway. The Ward Museum was named in honor of Steven and Lemuel Ward, whose vision and artistry in carving decoys pioneered the transition in the role of the decoy from a working tool to an expressive wildfowl sculpture. A cherished part of its local community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and far beyond the Ward Museum maintains a national and international reputation for excellence, the Museum has dues-paying members in all 50 states and 10 countries. The reach of this institution reflects the wide appeal and interest in an art form that reveals the interconnections of art, nature and heritage.
