Curator's Choice Lecture Series: The American West in Fact or Fiction

Saturday Jun 3 2017

3:00pm - 4:30pm

Farmington Museum & Visitor Center

The West is a physical region whose landscape is as diverse as its people, but it is also a romanticized notion that has come to symbolize the American experience around the world. Join Farmington Museum to explores the region, from the frontier to the future, to show why the West has played such a pivotal role in world history and how it continues to permeate all aspects of American life, at home and abroad.
