Experience the breadth and depth of Gilcrease Museum’s permanent collection in a variety of inspiring exhibitions featuring the fine art, anthropology and archival items from our collection. The American West comes alive at Gilcrease through the eyes of Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, Charles Schreyvogel and Frank Tenney Johnson. Here you’ll find the breathtaking landscape paintings of Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt, and noteworthy works by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler and William Merritt Chase. Contrast those with works by Taos Society artists Ernest Blumenschein, Bert Phillips and Joseph Henry Sharp. Our anthropology collection features the spectacular Beaver Effigy Pipe (Hopewell Platform Pipe), ca. 200 CE from Pike County, Illinois which has been called one of the greatest artworks to emerge from the great Hopewell cultural complex of the Americas. In addition, the only known surviving handwritten copies of the Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation are part of our archival collection. It is clear why Gilcrease Museum’s collection is world-renowned. A robust temporary exhibition schedule is yet another reason to visit us!
