Opening Exhibit Reception - Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Be one of the first to view our latest exhibit, Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy. Dr. Karen Benavente will discuss how the vaquero is not only a symbol of Texas but also (and perhaps more importantly now) a 'border figure' whose ways of life transgress the static frontier of boundaries, fences and walls. Light refreshments will be served.

This program is supported in part by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Free and open to the public
