Wall Western Collection
The newest addition to the museum is the Wall Western Collection exhibition. Featuring 23 western bronze art works collected by Montezuma resident, Howard Wall and permanently loaned to the museum for this exciting exhibition. Howard was intrigued by Frederic Remington’s art and his role in creating the popular image of the West that still persists today. He studied and enjoyed these sculptures because they represent mans struggle to control nature and reveal Remington’s constant challenge to control the limits of the medium. This is the largest collection of Frederic Remington bronze miniatures in Kansas, plus it showcases a fabulous print of “A Dash for the Timber.” Experience the famed Bronco Buster, the bone-chilling Norther, support for a fellow trooper in The Wounded Bunkie and the gravity defying Buffalo Horse. Impressive bronzes by Lanford Monroe and James Earle Fraser are also displayed.
