We Might Be Cowboys - Western American & Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, Florida

The American West holds a place in the collective psyche as a nostalgic connection to our dynamic cultural past. This is showcased beautifully in paintings that can be explored in Downtown St. Petersburg at The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art. This beautiful facility quickly jumped to one of our favorite art museums, with its stunning lobby, extensive collection of fine art pieces, and is easy to navigate curation of the artwork. The lobby’s most notable feature was its design that pays tribute to the wind-beaten canyons of the American Southwest and to Native American heritage. At the end of the great entry hall, a water feature provides relaxing ambient noise, a grand backdrop, and call to the unknown that was once the wild frontier. The galleries were easy to navigate and, as an added element during these interesting times, the museum provided handouts for self-guided tour ideas based on different themes found in many of the collection’s pieces.
