Since its inception in 1872, the first national park in the world- Yellowstone- has been perceived as a vast visual spectacle. By the 1890s, it was known as the "Nation's Art Gallery." We are proud to offer a limited edition of the exhibition catalogue for the BBHC's 2005 special exhibition Drawn to Yellowstone: Artists in America's First National Park. Handsomely leather bound and featuring a bronze medallion inlaid in the cover, the catalogue includes a limited edition etching by renowned western artist Michael Coleman whose work is featured in the exhibition. Author Peter H. Hassrick traces the artistic history of the park from its earliest explorers to the present. Hassrick is the founding director emeritus of the Charles M. Russell Center at the University of Oklahoma and was director of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center for 20 years. The edition is limited to 120 copies. 248 pages-slipcased.
