How do you picture the American West? Images of the West have enticed waves of homesteaders, adventure travelers, business barons and economic migrants. The people drawn by those images did not always find what they were expecting. They encountered a West that is both wide-open and controlled, productive and largely arid, essentially American and culturally complex. Explore the imagery of the West with Education Coordinator Tiffani Egnor and discover how it compares with the reality of our region.

After the program view the exhibition “Greatest Photographs of the American West,” opening at Chandler Museum on November 2, 2021.
