Open Range: The West and the American Imagination

Through an exploration of images of the American West drawn from paintings, photographs and cinema, Dr. McCoy will discuss the creation of the mythology of the West and its role in shaping American aspirations and character. What did the open range and endless possibility mean to Americans and what did it cost? Does the West still matter?
