Resident Artist: Jason Scull
The Museum of Western Art is proud to have Cowboy Artist of America Sculptor Jason Scull as its resident sculptor. Scull will be in the Museum’s studio sculpting every Wednesday thru Friday, and the last Saturday of most months from 10:00 a.m. until about 4:00 p.m.
Jason Scull grew up in a family that farmed and ranched on the fringes of the South Texas brush country. His people were early settlers in Texas who arrived in the mid-1820s and ranched, raised families, fought wars and carved a place in the American West. Scull’s life with cattle and horses coupled with his respect for the culture of the American West have shaped and continue to inspire the direction of his art. In addition, his education has come in the form of personal study with established artists, most notably Jack Swanson, Mehl Lawson, and Cynthia Rigden.
His sculpture can be found in private, museum, and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada and England. He was elected into membership in the Cowboy Artists of America in 2011.

The education department at The Museum of Western Art is dedicated to providing children and adults with knowledge and inspiration about the West. The interest and appreciation of art and history is facilitated by studying their roles and influence in the development and preservation of America’s Western Heritage.
To do this we provide schools and the public with access to events, lectures and tours highlighting Western art and the history of the West. We involve the community with art appreciation programs in the hopes that art will be treasured as the boon to our independence and creativity. Art is a window to the West in every sense of the word and should encourage our children to dream big and appreciate their freedom to express themselves.
We hope you will explore our programs and join us in our quest for the sake of learning and enjoyment. For upcoming educational events, visit our calendar or contact Darla Pfiester at (210) 296-1924.
