Go West! Art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West -SLC

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) is the latest stop on the GO WEST! ART OF THE AMERICAN FRONTIER tour for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Salt Lake City is the fourth venue for this well-traveled—and well received—exhibition, following shows at the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia (2014); the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California (2015); and last year’s stint at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska. Go West! features some of the Center’s most extraordinary artwork from a “Who’s Who” in art of the American West: Alfred Jacob Miller, William T. Ranney, John Mix Stanley, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and W.H.D. Koerner, to name a few. Indeed, the works from this period were instrumental in shaping our perceptions of the American West—and still do today. We here at the Center of the West are on the trailing edge of our Centennial year—a grand celebration of our past, and a nod to the new century ahead. We’re committed to the vision of our namesake, and the organization founded in his memory in 1917, i.e. taking the West to the world. So, at a time when our foot traffic slows, Go West! allows us to do exactly that as we dispatch our most important and most popular works to other museums throughout the country during our “off season.” With that, Go West! actually heads a little south to Salt Lake City’s renowned Utah Museum of Fine Arts, December 3, 2017-March 11, 2018. Take a look at the gallery below to discover more about some works that made the trip! #GoWest
