Prix de West is the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum's prestigious annual invitational art exhibit, featuring over 300 Western paintings and sculpture by some of the finest contemporary artists in the nation. Experience a diverse array of styles, with works ranging from historical pieces that reflect the early days of the West to more modern and impressionist works of art.

The exhibition kicks off with two days of seminars on art-related topics and art demonstrations, and the weekend culminates with a fixed-price sale of all the exhibition pieces. Reservations are required for opening activities.

The 2016 exhibition and sale will feature 98 artists, more than 300 paintings and sculptures and two new guest artists: Glenn Dean and Z.S. Liang. Friday night’s Prix de West Preview Party and Awards Dinner is exclusively for those purchasing the premium event package. Five new awards will also be given away throughout the evening, honoring individuals for exceptional artistic merit. A celebration with food and live entertainment will follow Saturday evening’s traditional fixed-price draw for art, and the esteemed Jackie L. Coles Buyers’ Choice Award will be announced immediately after the live auction.
