The Philip and Gail Holstein Collection
Philip and Gail Holstein have long studied, collected, and loved the art of Native Americans. Portions of their extensive collections have found homes in the Chicago Field Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Colorado Museum, and the Museums of Western Colorado’s Museum of the West. Together they curated the exhibition “Enduring Visions: 1,000 Years of Southwest Indian Art” which opened at the Aspen Art Museum and traveled to other major museums.
This year, let us make the travel plans for your adventures!
Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.

The Museums of Western Colorado is the largest multi-disciplinary museum complex between Salt Lake City and Denver. Over the past fifty years we have grown to include three major museum facilities, three active outdoor paleontology sites, and a respected research library.
