James Bama: Portraits of the West

If you love Cody, you’re part of the Club! A great program, appetizers, and cash bar at every program.

Susan Barnett, Scarlett Curator of the Whitney Western Art Museum, presents “James Bama: Portraits of the West.” In October 2023, an exhibition of the same name opens in the John Bunker Sands Photography Gallery at the Center of the West. It will focus on Bama’s portrait photographs, which he considered source materials for his paintings. They are sensitive studies of humanity and complete works of art.

Collectively, his gelatin silver prints comprise a complex and multi-faceted portrait of the historic and mythical West. Barnett will discuss Bama, his photographs, and her work on the exhibition.

Cody Culture Club events are $20 per person. Space is limited so reserve your spot early at centerofthewest.org/codycultureclub
