Always Your Pal: Gene Autry and His Fans
Autry Museum Case
Posted September 14, 2018
The Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles, California recently debuted a special case titled Always Your Pal: Gene Autry and His Fans.
Gene Autry and his fans had a special relationship. The famous singing cowboy toured tirelessly to meet his fans in person and harnessed modern media to remain present in their lives. In turn, fans around the world developed a personal attachment to the legendary cowboy. This new case features fan-created artworks and media, illustrating the many imprints that fans put on their hero. Autry’s face and name appear carefully crafted in leather, denim, mahogany, and even on sandpaper.
This special case will be on view through the Spring of 2020 in the museum’s Ted and Marian Craver Imagination Gallery.
