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.
