Wild Wild West

Wild Wild West is a satirical cartoon about what was wild about the West in 1969: taking a rampaging ride in a powerful sports car while trying to lasso a rabbit. The rider is falling into a cactus from his panicked horse. The cowgirls and cowboy are driving through Dry Gulch, a town of one house, with a population of 0 (until you win a free game).

Art Stenholm's energetic lines capture the motion and sense of fun. As with much of Stenholm’s work, this piece seems to point out the changing times. The symbols of an earlier era are disrupted and displaced by a new generation. Though comical, this disruption doesn’t seem unwelcome as much as surprising.
