    Imprinting the West: Manifest Destiny, Real and Imagined

    Westward expansion was one of the most transformational elements in American life throughout the nineteenth century. Printed imagery played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge and understanding about the West and those who inhabited it. Featuring hand-colored engravings and lithographs, the exhibition explores these depictions and the influence artists had on the West’s perception.
