(Scottsdale, AZ) – What do John Wayne, Dale Evans, Gene Autry, Jane Russell, Roy Rogers and Ken Freeman have in common? They are all individuals who have been recognized by the National Festival of the West as men and women who have set the example of Western heroes with the integrity, strength of spirit. and moral character depicted by the American Cowboy.  On Saturday, March 20, 2010, artist Kenneth M. Freeman, a Jewish Cowboy as he liked to refer to himself, will receive the Cowboy Spirit Award at the final National Festival of the West (presented to his curator, Bonnie Adams of the Kenneth M. Freeman Legacy).

Each year, the National Festival of the West presents the prestigious award to men and women who have contributed to the continuance of the western life-style and who have demonstrated the characteristics so admired in the American cowboy. Freeman is the only fulltime artist ever chosen to receive the Cowboy Spirit Award.  Ken Freeman, who passed away May 2008, painted portraits of three other Cowboy Spirit Award recipients: John Smith and Robert Fuller (both known for Laramie) and John Wayne.  Ken is honored posthumously on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 2 p.m. at the festival.
