Temporary Exhibits

We welcome you to our fifth annual Heritage Rendezvous sponsored by U.S. Bank. The Museum of the West is hosting this annual tradition celebrating the unique heritage of the Western Slope. 

This year’s theme is Out of Place and Time: Unusual and Strange Artifacts Found in Institutional Collections. The artifacts in the exhibition include a prayer bell encapsulated by a tree, an unusual barb wire collection, a unique invention, photographs of pioneers in distant lands, and other odd artifacts or heirlooms found in participating regional museum collections. Western Colorado museums and institutions are bringing their exhibits that tell the stories of unusual artifacts that give a colorful twist to their communities.
