Nashville, TN.- The Cheekwood strong>Botanical Garden and Museum of Art is proud to present “Visions of the American West: Masterworks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center”, on view at the museum through March 4th 2012. The American West is a remarkable and storied place; both the real, history-baked landscape and the “Wild West” that lives in the world’s imagination. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming is one of the best destinations in the world to learn about every side of the West. Native Americans and Cowboys, landscape, technology, history, art, and, of course, Buffalo Bill — the BBHC tells these stories and more through a vast collection contained within five distinct museums. Cheekwood is fortunate to partner with The Buffalo Bill Historical Center to bring these treasures to Nashville. We are excited to reintroduce you to Buffalo Bill, the star of the world-traveling Wild West show of the late 1800s. The show came through Nashville and several other cities in Tennessee on numerous occasions– around the same time that Joel Cheek was perfecting the Maxwell House coffee blend that built the Cheekwood estate
