Title: “Three Cowboys”
Artist: Davey K.
Cowboys hold a certain mystique here at the Arc, with John Wayne rivaling Frida Kahlo and Batman for the title of most popular person to paint. For this piece, Davey depicted his three favorite cowboys—Wayne, the Rifleman and the Lone Ranger—surrounded by the lyrics to the ultimate ode to a life of ropin’ and ridin’, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” by Toby Keith. We think this piece would look equally at home on the range or in the downtown dwelling of an urban cowboy.
