PBS aired "Imagined Wests" on Wednesday, November 10th. The hour-long documentary, which is part of the "Artbound" series, focuses on the Autry's "Spirits of the West" mural and their efforts to recontextualize it (and the museum) in light of changing interpretations of the American West. The program also places the Autry's challenges within broader discussions of monuments and civic memory. The documentary is archived on the PBS website and can be viewed here: https://www.pbs.org/video/imagined-wests-tnaggs/

The WHA is located in the Department of History at the University of Kansas.

The WHA is grateful to KU's History Department and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for their generous support!
