Em­bark on a gen­uine ad­ven­ture at Desert Ca­balleros Western Mu­seum in Wick­en­burg, Ari­zona, where world­class art col­lec­tions meet im­mer­sive his­tor­i­cal ex­hi­bi­tions. DCWM’S gal­leries and free guide­port au­dio tours tell the fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries of ex­plor­ers, cow­boys, min­ers and oth­ers who lived and worked in the Amer­i­can West. With an eye on the hori­zon, the mu­seum hosts its Cow­girl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West In­vi­ta­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion and Sale each spring. Fea­tur­ing the tal­ents of more than 50 of the the coun­try’s best Western women artists, Cow­girl Up! turns the spot­light squarely on women’s voices and per­spec­tives, serv­ing up a new, deeper un­der­stand­ing of the Amer­i­can West.
