2017 marks the 100-year anniversary of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s death in Denver. In honor of this centenary, Denver Arts & Venues highlights the diversity in his Wild West shows by borrowing from the poster collection of the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave in Golden.

In Inclusion: Diverse Voices of the Modern West, Denver artist Rochelle Johnson has brought together a group of Colorado artists to explore themes of complex connections of racial identity through artistic expression. Underrepresented in the mainstream art scene, the diversity of these artists shows what true inclusion can look like.

Artists included in the exhibition are Sean Gray, Dawn Williams Boyd, Kaz Umezono, Jenna Almond Williams, Josh Armijo, Yee Tseng, Deborah Jang, Joel Cook, Allister Bane, Sylvia Montero, Tony Ortega, Ron Hicks, Michael Gadlin, Karen Divine, James Dixon, Ella Maria Ray, and Andrea T. Kemp
