Promoting the West: Abby Williams Hill and the Railroads

Promoting the West: Abby Williams Hill and the Railroads

Art Show
From 1903 to 1906, Tacoma artist Abby Williams Hill (1861-1943) painted the Pacific Northwest landscape and Yellowstone National Park for the Great Northern and Northern Pacific railroads. She was one of only a few women artists hired for railroad commissions. Her images were used for promotional campaigns encouraging railroad travel to the West for tourism or settlement. Through a selection of paintings, sketches, and archival materials, come explore her fascinating and adventurous journeys and learn how her romanticized views of wilderness helped the railroads to shape public opinions about western expansion. This exhibition was organized in collaboration with University of Puget Sound, who holds the artworks and archives from Abby Williams Hill’s estate.
