Exhibition Overview

Consumption of the West through popular media has been a mainstay of popular culture, both in the United States and around the world. Pulp publications, film, radio, music, television, and video games have all presented treatments of the West as a genre. Located in the Entrance to the West Gallery, the exhibition introduces guests to the Western genre explored in greater depth in the Museum’s permanent Western Performers Gallery. Through posters, archival objects, costumes and props, Find Your Western offers guests a chance to look at a broader scope of Westerns than previously presented.
