The Western Art Council is devoted to a broad vision of the art of the American West. This vision traditionally combines the complex blend of cultures, landscapes, historical forces, and artistic traditions that shape our ever-evolving notion of the West. Your membership supports the collection, interpretation, and preservation of Western and Native American fine art.

"Happy Birthday, WAC!  Come join us as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary all year long! Now is the time to discover the educational programs, the social activities, and the great friendships you'll make at the Western Art Council. We look forward to seeing you at our unique events. Bring your friends. They'll thank you for it."

Michael O'Keefe
Immediate Past Chair, WAC Board
