FINAL WEEK: The Western: An Epic in Art and Film
September 5, 2017 - September 10, 2017
We LOVED this exhibit! Don’t miss it!!
The Western: An Epic in Art and Film is the first major exhibition to examine the Western genre and its evolution from the mid-1800s to the present through fine art, film, and popular culture. Featuring 160 works, the exhibition explores gender roles, race relations, and gun violence—offering a visual journey that is about more than cowboys, bandits, and barroom brawls.
The West is synonymous with the romantic, large-scale paintings of Frederic Remington and Albert Bierstadt. It also materializes in the works of contemporary artists like Ed Ruscha and Kent Monkman, and the films of John Ford and Sergio Leone. By featuring these and other artists, authors, filmmakers, and historic figures together, The Westernobserves how the mythology of the West spread throughout the world and endures today.
