Western Art


After my visit to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art I thought I'd stop in at the brand new Scottsdale Museum of the West and see what they had to offer.  I have to say I was a bit surprised.  I didn't expect such big museum judging from the building on the outside.  And, I was surprised at everything they had on exhibit.  Every thing from sculptures, paintings, craftwork, jewelry to western gear.


Take a look at this collection of saddles and behind them the cases of other horse gear from spurs to saddle blankets.   Tomorrow I'll show you some of the artwork on display.

Looks very interesting indeed! We have the Phippen Museum of Western Art that is similar to this.
