Harken back to the days of cowboys and covered wagons while considering the stark contrast between myth and truth at this exhibition of 48 hand-colored engravings and lithographs from the 1800s. Learn more about artists like Fredric Remington, who promoted their work to generate support for westward expansion and the displacement of Native Americans amongst eastern and international audiences. Then contrast them with more realistic depictions of Native American life in George Carlin’s portraits and Karl Bodmer’s realistic western scenes. Mon-Sat 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
