The Reel West exhibit explores
The Reel West exhibit explores morality, diversity and American identity as depicted in the Western film genre and how Hollywood movies and television shows shape our understanding of the world around us. Visitors will see film costumes, props, memorabilia, paintings, movie posters and images from the early silent Western films to mid-20th century classics up through today. The Reel West will appeal to casual movie fans, serious film buffs, those who remember iconic Westerns and those new to the genre.
Note: A few of the film clips shown in the mini-theater at the start of the exhibit include scenes of staged, choreographed shootout violence or coarse language customary of some Westerns. An explanatory sign will be posted to notify parents of young children that they might wish to bypass the mini-theater and move straight into the exhibition.
