West Point Points West

A Publication of the Institue of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum

On the bicentennial of the Military Academy, the Institue of Western American Art of the Denver Art Museum celebrated the conjoining of military mission and artistic pursuit in WEST POIN / POINTS WEST.  Five distinguished scholars – B. Byron Price , David Reel, John Pultz, Roger Echo Hawk and Joan Carpenter Troccoli, offer varying perspectives on the seminal role played by West Point and the U.S. Army in the development of the art of the American West.  Their stories explore the ways in which West Point’s 19th century graduates helped build not just forts and dams, but the foundations of American cultural life.
