collecting the west: rodeo, ranching, roughstockShowcasing more than 100 works of art and historical objects, this first annual exhibition is organized around a theme. Collecting the West will feature a different theme each year with highlights from private and public collections throughout the Southwest.This year, artifacts and artwork relating to ranching, rodeo, or the animals that are part of these western traditions are woven together to tell rich stories. Also explored are questions such as: why do we collect, how do we collect, and how do the stories associated with art and objects provide a context for viewers.
