Currently on view at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts is an exhibition titled “Many Wests: Artists Shape an American Idea.” This collaborative exhibition takes a critical look at Western narratives and who those narratives have historically amplified — or silenced.

Confronting what can sometimes feel like settled narratives is no easy task and certainly not one to be accomplished without community and collaboration. With that in mind, “Many Wests” was collaboratively curated by five museums that were organized by an initiative by the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. and the Art Bridges Foundation in Bentonville.
