CFD Old West Museum presents the Western Art Show & Sale

The 41st Annual Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Invitational Western Art Show & Sale will take place from Thursday, July 22 to August 15, 2021. The Western Art Show features the nation’s top Western artists who bring to life the celebration, the heritage, and the outlook of the American West. This year, we are thrilled to be back in person to bring you an art show experience that is as big and grand as the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days™!

The Opening Reception begins at 3:30 p.m. on July 22 with the ticket holder preview. At 4:30 p.m., guests will hop onto a yellow school bus for hors d’oeuvres on the lawn of the Governor’s Residence. The exhibit and Jump-the-Gun will open at 6:00pm at the Museum. With Jump-the-Gun, patrons can immediately purchase artwork at a premium price. To round out the night, we will have our sales drawing at 7:00pm and a western dinner with live music.

After July 16, remaining tickets to the Opening Reception will no longer be offered online and will need to be purchased at the CFD Old West Museum Office at a price of $200. But don’t worry! If you miss the Opening Reception, you will still have a chance to view and/or purchase art when the Western Art show is released for public viewing on Friday, July 23 and will remain open until August 15.
