The Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Western Art Show is an invitational show which features the nation’s top Western artists presenting original art that celebrates the heritage and the future of the American West. Over the last 40 years, this high-caliber Art Show has contributed over $3 million and has become the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum’s largest fundraiser supporting Arts Education, Exhibits, Collections, and Operations.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape of social outings and the world at large, we are determined to bring the experience of the Western Art Show into your living room, while keeping the safety and well-being of the viewers and participants as our number one priority.
This year’s Western Art Show Opening Reception will be on Facebook Live, and promises to bring the same intensity as past opening spectacles with events such as Jump the Gun, Ticket Holder Only Purchase Hour, Artist Interactions, and more.
While it is free to view the Virtual Opening Reception on Facebook Live, audience members who wish to purchase artwork during the Virtual Opening Reception will need to purchase a ticket to the event. Tickets for the Virtual Opening Reception are $160 for Non-Members or $130 for Members. Ticket holder benefits are listed at www.cfdartshow.com.
Ticket holders may Jump the Gun starting on July 9 online only at www.cfdartshow.com. Ticket holders may begin purchasing art at the regular price starting at 7 p.m. on July 16. During the Virtual Opening Reception, the Museum will have a phone bank for those who need assistance.
On July 17 at 9 a.m. MDT, non-ticket holders may purchase art at the Museum, online, or over the phone. All artwork is sold on a first-come, first serve basis.
