Emigrants Crossing the Plains
by Albert Bierstadt

The William S. and Ann Atherton Art of the American West Gallery contains outstanding examples of paintings and sculptures from the more than 2,000 art pieces in the museum collection. Beginning with 18' tall marble Canyon Princess by Gerald Balciar at its entrance and continuing with Albert Bierstadt's Emigrants Crossing the Plains, and William R. Leigh's The leader's Downfall, representing the more monumental presentations, this 15,000 square foot gallery is packed with art that delights the eye and overwhelms the senses.
