Albany - The excitement of the wild west is spreading through Albany. A collection of 50 works is on display at the Albany Museum of Art. The paintings, sculptures, and other works come from the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville.

The exhibits opens just in time for the Frontier Festival at the Parks at Chehaw. So, the museum and park are teaming up to teach history and art. "They will work with our staff," said Director Aaron Berger. "We'll talk about the mechanics of the art you, and they'll talk about the history of the subject matter in the painting. So it's just a perfect fit."

You can see the western art exhibit until March 27th. And, you can experience what life on the frontier was really like at Frontier Days at the Parks at Chehaw Friday through Sunday.
