The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, located in Duncan, Oklahoma, brings the old west and cowboy history to life through interactive exhibits, art and movies. Education programs provide history of the southern Great Plains of the United States.

 Explore, push buttons, pick up a lasso, or wear a cowboy hat. We want you to have fun while you are here!

 

In our T.H. McCasland Jr. Chisholm Trail Experience Theater you will feel the rumble of a stampede as you watch the movie.

 

Stroll through the Garis Gallery of the American West to see works by famous historical western artists like Charlie Russell or Frederic Remington or newer works by more contemporary artists like Canadian Ramona Swift, who is also a member of Artists For Conservation. Our exhibit includes beautiful bronzes of all sizes, including one by Michael Anthony Ricker. 

Buffalo, grackles, black labs and bluebirds are just a few of the subjects that inspire Duncan artist, Mikel Davison. He incorporates the everyday ordinary, combined with the rich history of Oklahoma, into his artwork. Carving cigar store Indians from 100-year-old fallen trees, finding reclaimed wood that becomes useful home furniture and decor, and cast-off windows for his canvases, Mikel Davison believes in using what is available to create beautiful pieces that all have a story. 

 

Okie Eclectic - The Art of Mikel Davison, opens Sept. 15, 2014. A special artist's reception for Mikel will be held 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9. The show will remain open until Jan. 3, 2015. We hope you will Save The Date and attend the artist's reception. Come meet the man behind these unique "eclectic" pieces. We are sure you will find his stories fascinating and you probably will find something that you want to take home with you.

We will keep it updated with details about the show.
