Two hundred years ago a group of hopeful traders trekked from Franklin, Missouri to Santa Fe with goods to sell. The success of their journey inspired a frenzy of trade on the route that would become known as the Santa Fe Trail. For 59 years, wagons filled with cargo, animals and people traversed the land between Missouri and Santa Fe, leaving remnants of their journeys in the form of buildings, communities, stories, ecosystems, and ruts.

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail, this exhibition features works of art which are inspired by the remnants of the trail. Each featured artist brings their own perspective and vision to the trail, resulting in unique visions of the landmarks, stories, and environments. Come explore the Santa Fe Trail through art and reflect upon 200 years of commerce, conflict, and cultural connections.
