“The Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show & Sale is one of the most respected and prestigious western art exhibitions in the Rocky Mountain Region. We are able to attract top artists who use canvas, wood, alabaster and bronze to capture the real West,” said Mike Ceballos, Western Art Show & Sale Committee Chairman. “There isn’t a better place to see how the everyday life of the cowboy, and the lives of Native Americans, and the great American West and its wildlife make an impression on these outstanding artists. A visit the Cheyenne Frontier Days wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Old West Museum to see and experience the outstanding works of art on display.”

The CFD Western Art Show & Sale Committee produces a commemorative CFD poster and a limited edition print each year.
