Throughout the nineteenth century as Americans pushed west toward the Pacific, they were fascinated by westward expansion in North America. Printed imagery—lithographs and engravings—played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge and understanding about the West and its inhabitants. Now visitors to this new exhibition can see 48 hand-colored engravings and lithographs that explore these depictions and the influence the artists had on the perception of the wild west. https://www.oldwestmuseum.org/
