Wyoming’s rich art scene captures the spirit of the west through paintings, sculpture, and cowboy craftsmanship that is on display throughout the state.
Known for its affiliation to the Smithsonian, the Whitney Western Art Museum in Cody showcases the legends of western art in one of five museums at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Perched above the National Elk Refuge in Jackson you’ll find the National Museum of Wildlife Art; known for celebrating wildlife from all over the world, this gallery showcases more than 5,000 pieces of art. To experience art at work, travel to Sheridan to touch and feel true cowboy craftsmanship of leather tooling at King’s Saddlery, or immerse yourself in western and American Indian art from many of the most celebrated 19th and 20th centery western artits at the Brinton Museum, located on the historic Quarter Circle A Ranch in Big Horn.
