Vaquero Legacies & Diverse Descendants
February 13, 2021 - July 11, 2021
Bringing together more than ten photographers, this exhibit traces the many legacies left behind by the first cowboys to come to the Americas in the 1700s. Legacies brings to the forefront the charros of Mexico, Indian Relay Races and Rodeos, the paniolos of Hawaii, Black Rodeos, and cowboy culture, and many more rich expressions of this deeply Western tradition. People of Color and their stories will be presented to further the understanding that the West was and is a deeply diverse area, one of many cultures and peoples.
