    Buffalo Bill Historical Center sends art to Italy

    More than 100 years after his Wild West Show last toured Europe, Buffalo Bill Cody is helping attract a new crowd there, this time as a bridge between Western history and American art.

    The Buffalo Bill Historical Center has loaned 96 items – including a saddle used by Cody, a Kiowa Indian cradle and paintings by Thomas Moran and Frederic Remington – to the Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia, Italy.

    “America! History of Painting from the New World,” is an exhibition of paintings and contextual artifacts gathered from several American museums. It runs in the northern Italian town through May 4. Plains Indian Museum Curator Emma Hansen attended the exhibition’s opening in November and said it drew a large and enthusiastic crowd, with tickets selling out in advance for the first several weeks it was open.
