On View Through August 8, 2015
Exhibit On View. Join
us for our 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.
