The Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale — a Memorial Day weekend tradition in Prescott since 1974 and Arizona’s premier outdoor western art sale — is held each year in downtown Prescott, Arizona, the Cowboy Capital of the American West. And the 2014 event marks the show’s 40th anniversary and features more than 100 talented artists from all across North America and Canada displaying artwork in booths on the courthouse plaza.

“The Show and Sale provides local residents and visitors to Prescott with a chance to view exceptional western art and interact with professional Western artists from throughout the nation and abroad,” commented Kim Villalpando, Phippen Museum Executive Director. “And what’s so exciting is that many of the participating artists from past shows have eventually gone on to become some of the most well known and celebrated Western artists today.”
