MUSEUM TO HOST VAQUERO EXHIBITION
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
The Museum of Western Art is pleased to host “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy” that opens June 9 and will remain on view through July 14, 2017. In the early 1970s, noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways. Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse’s back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition. “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy” features photographs with bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle. The exhibition is created by the Wittliff Collections at the Alkek Library, Texas State University, presented in partnership with Humanities Texas, the state affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is made possible in part by a “We the People” grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information, please contact the museum at 830.896.2553.

6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
We will serve dinner at 5:00 PM for the children and volunteers. As Galactic Starveyors, kids will search the skies and God's Word to uncover God's truth etched in His handiwork. They will discover that the God who created everything there is--the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible--wants a relationship with them! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and His Holy Spirit to be our Helper. From the very beginning, to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond), nothing is outside God's control or beyond His grasp. God loves us and will never leave us.

Early days Circle "C" Band members reunite for a very special event, celebrating the 101st birthday of South Western Swing King Adolph Hofner and the 75th anniversary of John T.

Also playing will be Don Pack, owner of Dellview Music on steel guitar, Jim Attwoodon fiddle and Terry Sammons on drums. The Circle "C" Band is one of the oldest continually playing bands in South Texas. Like Adolph Hofner, they kept Texans on the dance floor at just about every dance hall around for the last 70 years. Join us for a night to remember! The Circle "C" Band plays first, from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Following will be the New Pearl Wranglers, an Adolph Hofner tribute band. Tickets $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Minors are $5 extra. Seating is limited. Tickets may be purchased here: http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1491694?utm_source=fbTfly&utm_me...
