2011 Prix de West
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

OKLAHOMA CITY — The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, announces the 38th annual Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale featuring more than 100 artists. The exhibit will include more than 300 Western paintings and sculptures by the finest contemporary Western artists in the nation. Art seminars, receptions and an awards banquet round out the exhibition’s opening events June 10-12.

The exhibiting artists bring a diversity of styles to this prestigious art exhibition. Works range from historical pieces that reflect the early days of the West, to more contemporary and impressionist works of art. Landscapes, wildlife and illustrative scenes are always highlighted in the exhibition. The annual event kicks off with two days of seminars on art-related topics and art demonstrations, a sale of all the submitted works and finishes with the Prix de West Perk on Sunday morning.

Prix de West is the Museum’s top annual fundraiser. The exhibition runs through September 5. It is just one of the many signature events the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum hosts each year.
