From RMPBS in Denver
When thinking of Western art, many people summon images of cowboys and Indians. But an annual exhibit in Denver aims to change that. Considered one of the finest exhibitions of contemporary realism in the United States, the Coors Western Art Exhibit, “situated amid a national stock show and rodeo” submerses visitors in a sensory experience with the sights, sounds and smells of the Western landscape. By celebrating the traditional Western spirit through contemporary techniques, the regionals evolving arts culture is helping to redefine the perception of Western art.
