The American West is more than a place or landscape: it’s an idea, a dream and a mythology. From the earliest days of westward expansion to contemporary American migration to sunny California, the chance of striking it rich in Nevada or the allure of the emerald cities of the Pacific Northwest, our nation’s fascination with the West and the waves of migration to this region have been driven in part by visual representations disseminated on TV, in art galleries, magazines and postcards. The artists included in Manipulated View direct attention to the construction of the American West through images. Exhibition runs Feb. 18 to April 13.
