American Museum of Western Art - The Anschutz Collection

The American Museum of Western Art-The Anschutz Collection is an art museum located in downtown Denver. With more than the expected cowboys and landscapes on view, our three floors of galleries reveal a range of styles and subject matter, from the historic to the contemporary.

In January we celebrate the National Western Stock show's arrival in town with two of the most well-known Western American artists, Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, who are known or their
romanticized mages of the open-range era.  We invite you to discover the adventure and spirit of the “wild west” as we provide artful insight into their dynamic portrayals of cowboys, scouts, and American Indians. We also offer special tours highlighting the visual history of ranching and livestock practices through the work of many artists. Riding through the West with Cowboys and Ranchers tours are offered every Wednesday at 1:00pm during the month of January.

If you think Western American art isn't for you, be assured that there is something for everyone among the 300 paintings on view. Join us for monthly writing sessions, explore the history of clouds in painting
and art, and get to know the women artists with our Western Women tours offered weekly in March. Step
back into the American West every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and allow our art to take you on a journey. Whether you choose to be led on an adventure during one of our unique programs or explore the Museum on your own, we are sure you will enjoy your time here!
