Buffalo Bill in art: Just how funky was he?

"Buffalo Bill first experienced the Wild West; then, he promoted it," says Steve Friesen, head of the Buffalo Bill Museum, who has been working tirelessly to hang the new new exhibit Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art. The museum has divided the show into several themes: Buffalo Bill as showman, as scout, as hunter, as businessman and, finally, as a lifelong child, Friesen says.
