Become a Masterworks Patron and witness history-in-the-making as Cheekwood celebrates the upcoming opening of Visions of the American West: Masterworks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

Objects include captivating fine art, Plains Indian artifacts, Wild West Show objects, personal items of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, wildlife imagery and firearms—all components of the quintessential and epic stories of the West.

Masterworks Patrons will be joined by dignitaries and civic leaders from both Tennessee and Wyoming to celebrate the opening of this historic exhibition at the Patron Party, to be held at Cheekwood on Friday, October 21, 2011. Present will be a delegation from Wyoming including, among others, The Honorable Alan K. Simpson, former United States Senator from Wyoming.
