The odd name here is for its founder, local businessman Harrison Eiteljorg, who took his obsession with all things Western and created this impressive museum. Not only does it have one of the best Western Art collections in the country (second only to the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas), but it also has important works by Frederic Remington, Georgia O'Keefe, Ansel Adams, Kay Walkingstick, and Andy Warhol. It also has done a bang-up job collecting cutting-edge contemporary works by today's Native American artists. The art is half of the museum. The other half is a sensitive exploration of the history of the have-nots in the American West, including intriguing exhibits on the lives of the region's Jews, African-Americans, and Native Americans. The museum also hosts a number of changing exhibitions on matters relating to the West.
