Imprinting the West: Manifest Destiny, Real and Imagined

Saturday, June 16, 2018

THE MUSEUM BROKEN ARROW OPENS IMPRINTING THE WEST: MANIFEST DESTINY, REAL AND IMAGINED JUNE 16, 2018 - AUGUST 11, 2018 Throughout the nineteenth century as Americans pushed west toward the Pacific, they were fascinated by westward expansion in North America. Printed imagery—lithographs and engravings—played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge and understanding about the West and its inhabitants. Now visitors to The Museum Broken Arrow’s new exhibition, Imprinting the West: Manifest Destiny, Real and Imagined, opening June 16, 2018, will see 48 hand-colored engravings and lithographs that explore these depictions and the influence the artists had on the perception of the wild west. *Charles Bird King, Spring Frog, A Cherokee Chief, 1836, hand-colored lithograph, 25 x 21, private collection.
