August 7, 10–11:30 a.m.

Free for members! Coffee & Curators invites members to enjoy coffee, refreshments, and each other as a curator speaks about a topic inspired by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s permanent collections, including special up-close or behind-the-scenes access. We may be venturing out more and more, but our curators are keeping it close to home this year as they share objects with local significance.

Our August gathering features the Whitney Western Art Museum. Curator Karen McWhorter highlights a wide range of artwork from the Whitney’s collection with Cody-area ties. From depictions of local landmarks and residents, to works of art commissioned, collected, or curated by community members, the objects discussed will vary widely in style and subject, but share deep Cody connections.

Space for this members event is limited and reservations are required. Call 307-578-4103 or e-mail us to reserve your seat. Meet us at the main entrance — or stay tuned for information on how to attend virtually if you prefer.
