What is there to do?

Here's a bit of art history for you kids, are you ready? 

Did you know that when George Phippen, who was the first President of the Cowboy Artists of America, died in 1966, he left behind a group of artists interested in creating a facility that specifically represented artists in the American West. 

In 1974, the George Phippen Memorial Foundation was formed to create a centralized venue that would fully support Western Art. With the assistance of a dedicated core of volunteers, the George Phippen Memorial Foundation began organizing fundraisers for the creation of their museum.

Thus, the Phippen Museum was born!

Today, there is 17,000 sq ft of exhibits and collections, that showcase the incredible talent of artists, as well as the importance of these time-worn items that were essential to maintaining life in the West. 

There are art studio replicas, cowboy and rancher Hall of Fame, American Indian artifacts, jewelry, paintings, drawings, sculptures, and so much more, that all tell the story of the American West's art and heritage.

Not only are there permanent collections and exhibitions within the Phippen Museum, but there are also temporary collections and exhibits, so there can always be something for you to go back to!
