“’Masters’ seeks to engage audiences with a wide range of artistic narratives about the American West, from its pioneers of legend and exceptional landscapes to contemporary Native artists who are reinventing traditional images, art forms, and styles,” said Amy Scott, the Autry’s Chief Curator and Marilyn B. and Calvin B. Gross Curator of Visual Arts. “In 2018, ‘Masters’ welcomes several highly respected artists from the world of contemporary art, along with the best of representational, narrative Western painting and sculpture.”
