Madonnas of the Prairie: Depictions of Women in the American West

February 13, 2015 -- May 10, 2015

National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
1700 NE 63rd St.
Oklahoma City, OK  73111
405/478-2250

This exhibit features more than 100 works from the late 19th century through the present representing women in the American West. While artists in the 1800s often depicted women as victims, passive observers, or passengers in the settlement of the west, subsequent portrayals show women in more active roles. Through the 20th century, women were portrayed as performers in Wild West shows and rodeos, as workers on farms and ranches, and as brave and heroic "pioneer mother" figures. The exhibit features paintings and sculptures that show these complex portrayals of women and honors the sacrifices of the "Madonnas of the Prairie" who endured the countless hardships of life in the American West.

Intent to Deceive: Fakes and Forgeries in the Art World

February 14, 2015 -- May 10, 2015

Oklahoma City Museum of Art
415 Couch Dr.
Oklahoma City, OK  73102
405/236-3100

This groundbreaking exhibition spotlights more than 60 works by some of the world's most notorious con artists, illuminating their dubious legacies and examining how their talents, charm, and audacity beguiled the art world of the 20th century through the present day. Several ingenious forgers during this time are profiled in this exhibition representing some of the most infamous scandals of our times. Included in each forger’s profile are their original works, personal effects and ephemera, photographs, film clips, and representations of the material and techniques used to create these convincing artworks. Also included are original works of art by modern masters such as Charles Courtney Curran, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Paul Signac, and others, shown alongside several of the world’s most accomplished art forgers to test perceptions of authenticity.
