Curator's Perspective: Rethinking the Boundaries of Western American Art
presented by Thomas Brent Smith, director and curator, Petrie Institute of
Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum

Free; registration required

With their long-standing connection to history painting and accounts of westward expansion, works of western American art have more often than not been viewed, celebrated, and critiqued more on the basis of historical authenticity than artistic merit. This has left the field with distinct barriers and limited its inclusiveness. Rethinking the boundaries of western American art with a consideration for artistic merit rather than historical authenticity can shape a more robust canon.
