This is a traveling exhibit on loan from the Autry Museum of the American West. The exhibit examines the important cultural, social, and environmental issues of the U.S. West covered by the High County News organization.
The Autry Museum, in collaboration with High Country News, organized High County News: Chronicler of the West in celebration of the newspaper’s 50th anniversary. It takes an across-the-decades approach to specific topics that are relevant to our local community. Together, as community members of the West, through the exhibit, we can reflect on how news is reported over the last half century. The exhibit also offers an interactive opportunity for visitors to learn about and express their opinion about the future of the West.
