Out West - The Great American Landscape Exhibition

The landscape and natural heritage of American West is diverse and dramatic. Through the study of this impressive landscape, one can understand more about the history, culture and heritage of the nation.

With the full support of the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong & Macau, Meridian International Center of Washington, D.C., USA (Meridian) and the Antiquities and Monuments Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of the HKSAR jointly present "Out West: The Great American Landscape". The "Out West" Exhibition was organized by Meridian and has been presented in various cities in China by Meridian in collaboration with the National Art Museum of China.

The exhibition, featuring around 70 pieces of works from various museums, galleries, collections and individual artists across the Western states, showcases to the public the diversity and richness of American culture and heritage. The exhibit includes oil and watercolor paintings, mixed media works, movie posters and lobby cards of some well-known American Western films. The exhibition focuses on an expanded definition of "landscape", incorporating aspects of the cultural, artistic and personal approaches of each artist. The vast skies, mountains, cowboys, Native Americans and grand animals who share this land are all presented.

"Out West" is accompanied by a photographic exhibition: "Under the Big Sky: Images of the American West". Produced by the National Geographic Museum of Washington, D.C., it features many well-known photographers and showcases the landscape of the western regions.

We hoped that through this exhibition the members of the public will come to know more about the heritage of the American West and its natural beauty.
