Museum of Western Art
The Museum of Western Art is dedicated to the painting and sculpture of living artists of the American West. In addition to the rotating collection, the museum has an art library and teaching facilities. The art focuses on cowboys, Native Americans, pioneer settlers, women in the West, law-enforcement officers, ranchers, and mountain men. Much of the art was influenced by W. Herbert Dunton, Bert Geer Phillips (1868–1956), and Oscar E. Berninghaus of the Taos art colony in Taos, New Mexico.
