The 101 Gallery is used primarily to display Western art collections and other specially created exhibits that pertain to the sport of rodeo. Exhibits in this gallery are changed at least twice a year.
Current exhibit: “Treasures From The Vault"
The current exhibit on display in our Rotating 101 Gallery is “Treasures from the Vault”. Included in this exhibit are items from our collections, either donated or on loan, that do not have a permanent display in the museum.
Items on display include: a portion of Mr. Stephen’s 300 belt buckle collection, many of them from the Hesston National Finals Series and other notable rodeos; Marsha Heap’s Hap Henriksen’s sculpture collection; 32 National Finals Rodeo jackets dating from 1989-2020 donated by Jim Crapnell, Jeannie Cunningham, and PRCA Properties; personal items of Rodeo Ben, Harla Kadrie’s National Finals Wine collection; and 3 panels from Leo Ververs bared wire collection.
Other treasure on display include sculptures of Jim Shoulders and Dean Oliver by Edd Hayes and Coors artwork and memorabilia.
