New Exhibit Opening.  Join us for our new exhibit - Imprinting the West: Manifest Destiny, Real and Imagined.  Throughout the nineteenth century as Americans pushed west toward the Pacific, they were fascinated by westward expansion in North America.  Printed Imagery played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge and understanding about the West and its inhabitants.  This exhibit contains 48 hand-colored engravings and lithographs that explore these depictions and the influence the artists had on the perception of the Wild West.
