A. Keith Brodkin Contemporary Western Artists Project

A. Keith Brodkin Contemporary Western Artists Project
To enable the Center to seek documentation of contemporary western art, the A. Keith Brodkin Contemporary Western Artists Project is critical. The Brodkin Project facilitates the collection, preservation, and accessibility of primary resources such as personal papers, studio ephemera, photographs, libraries, and other items which are often overlooked and lost to posterity and which reflect the artist’s life and career. Additional resources are acquired through personal oral histories via recorded interviews. Collecting these resources effectively preserves artists’ careers for posterity and provides future artists, art historians, educators, and researchers with documentary evidence.

Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project

Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project
The Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project collects, through recorded interviews, the biographies and stories of rodeo cowboys and cowgirls nationwide. These interviews are preserved and made available to authors, historians, and other interested persons in the Dickinson Research Center at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. As Gail Woerner writes, "These oral and video recordings will give anyone interested in the history of rodeo an opportunity to hear and view participants in rodeo tell their stories, first hand."
