This magnificent 16,500 square foot facility offers the most unique and breathtaking decor
in the West. Five monumental 18' x 46' triptychs depicting Western landscapes by renowned
artist Wilson Hurley, adorn the walls of this one-of-a-kind banquet area.
These five western landscapes are the largest set of triptych paintings in the nation. They
were completed between 1992 and 1996 by Wilson Hurley, and reside in the Sam Noble Special
Event Center. Each of the 18' x 46' triptychs, dubbed "Windows to the West," depict a
particular western location caught at sunset, and all, except one, have the same horizon
line with the light streaming in from the west. The first, New Mexico Suite, was completed
in 1992, and shows an apocalyptic sky over the Sandia Mountains as viewed from the west side
of the Rio Grande near Albuquerque. In 1993 came Arizona Suite, a view of the Grand Canyon
from an unusual lower level looking upward. Then in 1994 California Suite, depicting Point
Lobos on the Pacific Coast near Carmel, with the sun setting over the ocean, appeared. Utah
Suite, completed in 1995, contains a magnificent view of Monument Valley under a cloudless
sky. Finally, in 1996, Wyoming Suite, with its spectacular view of the lower falls of the
Yellowstone River, complete the assemblage.
The room has a banquet seating capacity of 1,000 and is equipped with the latest technology
for all of your audiovisual needs. Prep-kitchen facilities are available for on-site catering.
