Decades: An Expanded Context for Western American Art, 1900-1940

The Denver Art Museum's Petrie Institute of Western American Art is pleased to present a one-day symposium exploring Western American art within the context of decades. Four prominent American art scholars will examine western American art alongside concurrent events in American art and history, revealing interesting-and often surprising-intersections between western American art, American history, and the larger canon of American art.


Often western American art history isolates artists from their larger art historical context and contemporary peers across American art. This symposium will divide the early twentieth century into ten-year increments to investigate the major artistic movements and important figures in western American art across mediums, styles and subjects.


Symposium participants can also view the DAM's permanent collection of western art in the Betsy Magness Galleries on level seven of the North Building and the Dietler Galleries of Western Art on level two of the Hamilton Building.


All attendees are invited to the opening reception of the exhibition Rocky Mountain Majesty: The Paintings of Charles Partridges Adams following the symposium.



1900-1910: Ron Tyler, Retired Director, Amon Carter Museum of American Art

1910-1920: Charles C. Eldredge, Hall Distinguished Professor of American Art and Culture, University of Kansas
