Prescott, Arizona ~ Cowboy Capital of the American West
From the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon to the majestic Glacier Parks, this all American exhibition features artwork focused specifically on the nation’s great western parks. See our Exhibits page for details.
Beginning in 1900, at the age of 32, Edward Curtis began a forty-year odyssey to photograph and document the Native Peoples of North America. He captured not only the striking faces of his subjects, but also a glimpse into the lifestyle of each Native American tribe he photographed. Curtis photographs are on loan from the Smoki Museum. See our Exhibits page for more information.
