Visit the Remington Exhibit Before it Closes 12/8

Remington's Charge of the Rough Riders, which has
never been exhibited outside Odgensburg, NY
Just one more reminder to head to Alpine's Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross State University before the Frederic Remington exhibit heads back to its home in Ogdensburg, New York after December 8.

From the Museum's website:

"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."

The Museum is located at the northeast corner of the Sul Ross State University campus and can be reached from Entrance Two on U.S. Highway 90 or Entrance Four from Harrison Street. Once on campus, follow the small, brown signs.
Admission is free.
Donations are always welcomed.
