Friday, June 7-Saturday, June 8
“Prestigious” is the word, which comes to mind when you think of the Prix de West show at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Multiple that by 40 years, and you have the largest Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition yet. The 40th anniversary celebration will include the exhibit, sale and art and history seminars of years past along with demonstrations of work by artists, receptions and an awards banquet during the big opening weekend, Friday, June 7-Saturday, June 8. The exhibit itself will feature some 350 works of fine contemporary art, proving Western art as a still a viable, vibrant genre. The exhibit will continue through Aug. 4. Regular museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, and admission is $5.75-$12.50. Go to www.nationalcowboymuseum.org for all the details of the Prix de West opening weekend, including events, schedules and making reservations. The museum is located at 1700 NE 63rd St., Oklahoma City.
