Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art @ Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave
Jul 23 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art @ Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave | Golden | Colorado | United States

Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art, includes folk art, fine art, and popular (funky) art depicting one of America’s most iconic characters.  Some of the art has been in the museum’s collection since it first opened in 1921 and has not been displayed for decades.  Other art pieces have been newly added to the collection in the past five years, such as a rare velvet painting of Buffalo Bill on horseback.

Several works of art are on loan, including a painting of Buffalo Bill taking the “first scalp for Custer” by contemporary Western artist Thom Ross and an unusual depiction of Cody by 19th century British illustrator Alick P.F. Ritchie.  The artwork will run the gamut from the serious to the strange but it will all depict Buffalo Bill’s life and legend.  

Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave, 987 Lookout Mountain Road, Golden, CO 80401. For more information call 303-526-0744.

Quilting Past, Present, and Future: Front Range Contemporary Quilters  @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum | Golden | Colorado | United States

“Quilting: Past, Present, and Future” Front Range Contemporary Quilters and the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum (RMQM) partnered to present an exhibit that allows museum visitors an opportunity to compare and contrast the artistic elements of historic quilts with present day art quilts. Today’s art quilts have more of a relationship to historic bed covers. This exhibit will demonstrate the progression of art quilting by showing the work of 22 artists from the Denver area’s premier fiber arts guild alongside antique quilts from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum collection. Visitors will be surprised by the similarities of color, design, intent, and theme. Photo:Creation Story by Jan Magee
