Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley
Drawing influence from diverse sources such as Santa Fe–style painting of the 1930s–40s, Renaissance art, pop culture, advertising, and film, Bradley’s work is at once serious and fun, historical and contemporary.

Imagined West Studios
Lights! Cameras! Action! Explore the Autry’s new kid-friendly movie studio space designed and built by artist Mac Maker. "Imagined West Studios" encourages visitors to act in and film their own cinematic visions of the American West using creative props on a whimsically themed set.
