Back at the Ranch - An Artful Life

Back at the Ranch – An Artful Life showcases the expressive culture of the ranching community, with gearmaking videos, ranch videos, audio cowboy poetry and music.

The online exhibition is temporarily unavailable. For gearmaking videos, please visit our YouTube channel.


Over the past twenty years the West has seen a renaissance of artistic expression emerge from its ranching neighbors. Traditions of reciting poetry, making music, sharing stories, and creating tools of the trade have found fresh energy and new audience in today’s West.We invite you to listen to and view the creative work gathered in our collection, and learn a bit more about these art forms as they are practiced today.
