Take a docent-guided tour of Many Wests: Artists Shape an American Idea to gain in-depth insights about the themes, artists, and works featured in this exhibition, which examines the perspectives of 48 modern and contemporary artists who offer a broader and more inclusive view of the West beyond how it is often narrowly represented in popular culture and through dominant historical narratives. Docent tours are on a walk-in basis. Tours begin in the lobby of the Lightcatcher and last one hour.
The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
