Known as Arizona's Most Western Museum, the Desert Caballeros Western Museum features historical art and artful history. Visitors enjoy "The Best of West," treasures from the Museum's permanent collection with 200 years of art that tells the story of the American West from explorer artists such as Catlin; monumental landscape artists Bierstadt and Moran, to western artists Remington and Russell. Complimentary to its fine art collection are more sensational exhibits that reflect the history and culture of the Southwest.
On view September 29, 2012 at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum,is the "100 Years/100 Ranchers," an official Arizona Centennial Legacy Project by photographer Scott Baxter. Scott Baxter spent ten years on this project capturing 100 Arizona ranchers who have been ranching on the same land since or before 1912. You will be mesmerized by his magnificant black and white photography. This exhibit is accompanied by an audio tour of conversations and humor with some of the featured ranchers.
