This exhibition showcases a number of paintings by Walt Kuhn, an American artist and an organizer of the landmark 1913 Armory Show in New York. A colorful personality as well as a significant figure in modern art, Kuhn first painted the American West on a trip to California in 1900, and his paintings generally depict quintessential aspects of Western culture, including scenes of Native Americans, mining camps, and desert environments.
