This collection includes art and artifacts representing all major culture areas of the Western Hemisphere from tribes in the United States and Canada.
The Western collection features art created from the 1890s to modern day. Enjoy works from members of the Taos Society of Artists as well as creations by early modernist artists including Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert Henri, and many more.
The Eiteljorg tells the stories of the peoples of North America in all their diversity and complexity. It’s a place for historical context, artistic expression, new ideas, and individual perspectives. Here, visitors immerse themselves in the diverse cultures of the West and Native America. Sharing these amazing American stories is what we do at the Eiteljorg.
