Native American Art - - NEWS -

The ex­te­rior of the James Mu­seum of Western & Wildlife Art has shed its scaf­fold­ing to re­veal its eight-story fa­cade. With an ab­stract de­sign rep­re­sent­ing the mesas of the Amer­i­can South­west, the build­ing took more than 75 peo­ple over 15 months to com­plete. At 120 feet tall, the marker con­tains 14,900 square feet of stone and more than 82 tons of cus­tom-fab­ri­cated steel. The James Mu­seum is the home of 400 works from the col­lec­tion of Tom and Mary James, and is set to open this spring.
