Sand Ranch Herefords by Alice Leese
As we experience this most challenging and uncertain time, the Museum of the Big Bend has taken active steps to slow this pandemic. Here at the Museum, our first priority is the safety of our staff, student workers, volunteers and visitors, which meant our first step was to close the building temporarily. Today a core group of essential staff protects the collection and maintains the building's infrastructure.
Our next step was to think about our 34th annual exhibit and sale of cowboy gear and art, Trappings of Texas. We decided that we would not cancel nor delay this show, but instead create an online sale and exhibit. We have 43 artists who have created works specifically for this show. They had spent countless hours and purchased precious materials to make these unique works of art. We simply could not let them down!
Follow this link to the MoBB webpage. There you will find over 100 works of art for you to enjoy. Starting April 16th at high noon CT you can make your purchases, knowing that you are supporting an artist and the Museum of the Big Bend. Sales will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and as work sells, new work will be added to the exhibit. The online sale will run through August 2nd.
When we reopen, we will have a lot for you to discover, experience, and appreciate in our galleries, collections and special exhibitions.
