About the exhibition:

Showing the lighter side of Western and Cowboy culture, we will feature artists from the King Collection who were also cartoonists -- artists such as Fred Harman, George Phippen, Bill Chappell, and Kim Mackey. We'll display examples of Western and Cowboy comic books, dime novels and the Wrangler comics. J. R. Williams' Out Our Way gang makes an appearance and brings up some questions about the way we tell the stories of the Cowboys. Look for a humorous look at the cowboy life from Chris Ledoux, Wally Badgett, and more.
