Sid Richardson Museum: Exhibition - Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West

Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West features 17 paintings from George Catlin's Cartoon Collection portraying the cultural life of the Native Americans he encountered in his travels in the 1830s. The Exhibition features 4 rare Catlin illustrated books and Buffalo Hunt, a bronze sculpture by Charles M. Russell. A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others, is also included.

 

"Catlin’s art is a natural fit for The Sid Richardson Museum, since Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, two of the most prominent artists in our permanent collection, also devoted themselves to Western themes, with a great awareness of what was unfolding in the West during their lifetime. Catlin...painted anticipating a time in the future when the manners and customs of the American Indian would be lost. Remington and Russell...painted with a sense of nostalgia for a West that was then passing or had already passed."- Mary Burke, Sid Richardson Museum Director

 

Experience the 19th Century American West at the Sid Richardson Museum and Gift Store today!  The museum, located in the heart of Sundance Square, boasts paintings by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other premier Western artists.

Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline's door, carrying a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s poetry and an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. When these two let down their guard and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks the much deeper mystery that brought them together.
