WOOLAROC MUSEUM HOSTS NEW EXHIBIT

Woolaroc is pleased to announce the exhibition of the works of world-class sculptor artist Richard V. Greeves in the museum this spring.
Greeves is well known for his award-winning body of work, which is primarily devoted to portraying the life and culture of Native Americans. His awards are numerous, including the Prix de West Purchase Award from the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in OKC, and the Autry’s 2019 and 2016 Masters of the American West Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation Award for Sculpture. “Richard Greeves has been a friend to Woolaroc for a number of years and we are thrilled to exhibit his classic works in our museum this year,“ said Museum Director Shiloh Thurman. 
“Richard’s art fits perfectly in the museum,” said Woolaroc CEO Kevin Hoch. “His piece Bird Woman was acquired in 2018 as part of our permanent collection and has been a tremendous addition to our world-class collection.” The Woolaroc Museum hosts over 600 paintings, 300 bronzes, and thousands of pieces of Native American art and artifacts. The permanent collection includes a broad representation of paintings by many of the "Old Masters" of western art, such as Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, William R. Leigh and Frank Tenney Johnson, as well as contemporary artists such as Wilson Hurley, John Clymer and Bettina Steinke.
 The exhibit opens on March 23, 2022, and it will showcase 55 sculpture pieces with a focus on works detailing the Lewis and Clark expedition. The exhibition will be on display through September 2022 and is free with paid general admission.
Woolaroc is open year-round and is a 3,700-acre wildlife preserve, museum, historical attraction, and much more.
