DESCRIPTION

Reopening with new selections October 18, 2011

Combining traditional and contemporary artworks from the 19th-century to today, this installation presents a complex blend of cultures, landscapes, historical forces and artistic traditions that both inform and challenge our ever evolving notion of the West. The apparent intersecting and blending of influences of different cultures—Euro-American and Native American cultures—was an integral part of the expansion of the western frontier and forms an important part of our artistic heritage. Paintings by Thomas Moran, Charles Russell, Agnes Pelton, James Swinnerton and George Montgomery are featured with contemporary artworks by Alexis Smith, Fritz Scholder and Dan Namingha along with traditional forms of Native American basketry, pottery and textiles including works by Cahuilla basket artists Lupe Allberras and Dolores Saneva Patencio among others.
