Didactic Information Rendering a scene from Once Upon a Time in the West, a 1968 "Spaghetti Western" movie, Schenck creates a pop art image of the American West. Using his unique "paint-by-number" style, he pokes fun at mythic imagery of the West but also perpetuates it, creating a paradox between fact
and fiction. (Tucson Collects: Spirit of the West / June 16 - September 23, 2012)
