The West: Land of Many Stories


The Amerind Museum cares for thousands of objects: pots, tools, weavings, baskets, clothes, and much more. For exhibits and research, these everyday things are carefully preserved to help us understand the history of Native people who have for generations called the West home.


The Amerind Museum also has a rich legacy of art. In their own way, these paintings and sculptures tell stories, too. It should come as no surprise that this museum’s collection brings together artists from many cultures and places. The west encompasses recent homesteads and ancient farming villages, sheepherders and cattle ranchers, bustling towns and isolated hamlets. Its people speak dozens of languages and are the inheritors of many histories.


Some artists will capture true moments of life, and others will paint great stories. We have gathered in this exhibit some of the artists of Amerind’s permanent collection to give you a sense of this many storied land. As all good art does, we hope that their work will touch our visitors across cultures, times, and places.
