West Gallery

The West Gallery celebrates Will Rogers the cowboy and his love of all things western. Historical saddles from around the world from Rogers’ saddle collection are located throughout the gallery. Statuary in the room by Charlie Russell, Charlie Beil, Tex Wheeler, and Frederic Remington exemplify and honor Rogers’ love of western art. Wayne Cooper’s paintings on the south wall and Mike Wimmer’s illustrations for Frank Keating’s book, Will Rogers: An American Legend, on the north wall both depict facets of Will’s life growing up on the Old Home Ranch just outside of Oologah, Indian Territory. The Old Home Ranch, also known as the Birthplace, is open for visitors.
