John Steuart Curry: The Cowboy Within

John Steuart Curry was raised on a farm in northeast Kansas and is best known for his depictions of the Midwest. Another region revealed in his art, the American West, has always deserved more attention. Experiences on a family-owned ranch in Arizona nurtured Curry’s love of the Western landscape. During the 1920s the artist illustrated serialized magazine stories that took readers on Wild West adventures. In later years he created mural interpretations of Westward expansion. Through paintings, drawings, magazines, and books this exhibition is the first to survey Curry’s vision of the American West. Co-curated by independent scholar Frank Owings and Beach Museum of Art Curator Elizabeth Seaton, John Steuart Curry: The Cowboy Within is accompanied by an 80-page exhibition catalogue.
