Spirit of the Old West Series: Art of the American Frontier:
3700 Blackhawk Plaza Cir, Danville
Saturday, April 29th, 2017
10:30am | (included w/ museum general admission)
Art historian Karen McWhorter discusses a century of art from the American West—from the era of exploration to the end of the frontier in the twentieth century. McWhorter will offer a wide-ranging presentation on western artists active between 1830 and 1930, and will examine the ways in which art was shaped by (and itself shaped) contemporary perspectives on the American West. This talk will draw its subjects and imagery from the collections of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, and will highlight the work of George Catlin, Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington, and Charles M. Russell, among other renowned artists.
