The Phippen Mu­seum in Prescott, Ari­zona, fea­tures mu­se­umqual­ity art­work of the Amer­i­can West. Named after lo­cal artist and first pres­i­dent of the Cow­boy Artists of Amer­ica, Ge­orge Phippen, it presents per­ma­nent and chang­ing ex­hibits through­out the year with on­go­ing art and her­itage pro­gram­ming. Fea­tured artists from Western art’s past have in­cluded Olaf Wieghorst, Will James, Mar­jorie Reed and Ed­ward S. Cur­tis. Present-day Western artists rep­re­sented in­clude Bill Ne­beker, John Cole­man, Bill An­ton and Ken Rowe. A re­cent ac­qui­si­tion that was es­pe­cially mean­ing­ful for the mu­seum was the pro­cure­ment of a Ge­orge Phippen gouache from 1954 ti­tled Bring­ing ’Em Up the Muddy Bank.
