Trappings of the American West

In addition to all the Flagstaff Festival of Science activities this weekend, a new exhibit opens at the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA). During the 19th annual Trappings of the American West, October 4 through November 2, 2008, the Historic McMillan Homestead on the grounds of MNA, will be open to the public for the first time.

With the 1886 Homestead as its backdrop, Trappings will showcase contemporary art of the American West, but Flagstaff's history will also occupy part of this unique stage.

What an opportunity to enjoy the interpretation of the cowboy and the American West by these talented artists and learn about the fascinating people who built the foundation of our modern American town.

What a great fall weekend!
