Manifest American Mythic: Contemporary art and the Old West

The American West has been the site of assessment and reassessment by artists since before it was called "Old" and continues to exert an influence on the art of our own day. From concerns with individualism to the direction of the Nation, Manifest Destiny to ecological issues, from pop references to the historicized Western genre itself, we can trace ideas about ourselves and the notion of America through the glass of the West.
