Richard V. Greeves

Richard Greeves' destiny as an artist was shaped by a trip he took to the Wind River Reservation when he was fifteen. Spending time with an Indian family left an indelible impression on Greeves. He returned to his home in St. Louis, Missouri, but years later went back to Fort Washakie to live among the North American Plains Indians. He portrays, through sculpture, the character and spiritual essence of the people and animals of his chosen homeland. Greeves is winner of the James Earle Fraser Award for Outstanding Artistic Merit at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in 2000, and his monuments to Chief Washakie and Crazy Horse reside in the gardens of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
