Description

 

Doug Watson, Ph.D., in the persona of Thomas Gilcrease, discusses several of the early artists/explorers in the Gilcrease Museum collection, some of whom chose to join in the adventure of the West and others to record its passing. They set off from St. Louis to see the Trans-Mississippi world of native species and peoples. What they saw translated into the images they composed for their Eastern audiences. These perspectives still define many of our viewpoints of that historic time.

From My Point of View is an informal presentation and audience participation is welcome. Bring a sack lunch to eat while you learn! (Note: Food/Drinks carried through the museum must be in closed containers.)

Free and open to the public with paid museum admission.
