Step Back into the American West,
Where Art and History Come Together.
It is the mission of the American Museum of Western Art to promote the public’s understanding and appreciation of art depicting the American West from the early 1800s through the present day. The art presented is intended to give the public a better understanding and appreciation of the character, history, and beauty of the American West and the peoples, individuals, and ideas that transformed it over time.
The Anschutz Collection offers guided and self-guided tours of the museum on Mondays and Wednesdays and tickets must be purchased in advance. In addition to guided and self-guided tours, The Anschutz Collection accommodates school tours and group tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which can be arranged using the forms provided in Visitor Information.
The Anschutz Collection offers educational programs including our monthly special topic conversations, Artful Insights. Please see our upcoming programs listing below or visit our Tickets page for more information.
Upcoming Artful Insight on Charles Schreyvogel: Interpreter of the West
Our next Artful Insight on April 6 will focus on Interpreter of the West, Charles Schreyvogel. Although his name may be unfamiliar to most, his action-packed paintings of the United States Cavalry are probably not. Schreyvogel dedicated his relatively short career to accurately and sensitively depicting the military who defended the western frontier in the years following the Civil War.
Artful Insights are limited to a small number of visitors so each guest can have an intimate experience with the art and Museum guide. Advance reservations are highly recommended.
