Art From The Other Half Of The West

In 2006, Desert Caballeros Western Museum embraced a revolutionary idea: an annual exhibition showcasing the brightest contemporary female artists working in the Western genre. In the male-dominated world of Western Art, Cowgirl Up! turned the spotlight squarely on women’s voices and perspectives, serving up a new, deeper understanding of the American West. Over a decade later, CU! remains one of the major national events for Western women artists. More than a show – Cowgirl Up! is a crossroads where artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts come together to explore what it means to be a Western artist. CU! artists ride the range of techniques, styles, and mediums, traditional and contemporary. Embark on a genuine adventure at Desert Caballeros Western Museum in historic Wickenburg, Arizona, where world class art collections meet interactive historical exhibitions. Complimentary audio tours are available and admission for 17 and under is always free! 928-684-2272 or westernmuseum.org
