This September, the Museum of the Big Bend will bring “Treasures from The Frederic Remington Art Museum” to West Texas. Frederic Remington is considered the most influential and important artist to portray the American West. Works from the Remington Museum rarely leave their home in Ogdensburg, New York.
This historic exhibit will display a large number of Remington’s best known works from September 20th through December 8th. The iconic bronze, The Broncho Buster, and the never-before toured painting, The Charge of the Rough Riders, are but two of the pieces in the exhibit. Brought to the museum through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mallory and The Holland Hotel, the exhibit will contain more than twenty-two works that explore the diversity of the media and styles that Remington used in his pursuit of creating fine art while chronicling the West.
Brought together for the very first time will be the nation’s leading Remington scholars presenting new scholarship and research during the course of the weekend. Presenters include Mr. Peter Hassrick, Dr. Ron Tyler, Dr. B. Byron Price and Mr. Michael Duty.
Join us in the breathtaking Big Bend region of far West Texas by coming to Alpine, Texas, home of the Museum of the Big Bend and Sul Ross State University for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Investment of sponsorship of the “Treasures from The Frederic Remington Art Museum” exhibit and event offer a unique way to participate in this historic weekend. We invite you to join us today!
