Who knew? Paul Tudor Jones II, the big-shot New York investor and native Memphian, collects waterfowl decoys. And his isn't just any collection: As befitting a man of his reach and means, his set of antique decoys is among the finest in the world. "The Art of Deception: Waterfowl Decoys from the Private Collection of Paul Tudor Jones II" will be at the Brooks Museum through October 29th. As chairman of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and director of the Everglades Foundation, Jones has made natural conservancy one of his prime endeavors. His decoys have never before been publicly displayed.
The exhibit runs in conjunction with the Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest, the entries for which are on display at the Memphis College of Art (MCA) through October 7th, when the winner will be announced. To learn more, go here.
