09/25 Sid Richardson Museum & Store 9:00am 09/25 thru 05/31

Exhibition - Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West

Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West features 17 paintings from George Catlin's Cartoon Collection portraying the cultural life of the Native Americans he encountered in his travels in the 1830s. The Exhibition features 4 rare Catlin illustrated books and Buffalo Hunt, a bronze sculpture by Charles M. Russell. A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others, is also included.

 

"Catlin’s art is a natural fit for The Sid Richardson Museum, since Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, two of the most prominent artists in our permanent collection, also devoted themselves to Western themes, with a great awareness of what was unfolding in the West during their lifetime. Catlin...painted anticipating a time in the future when the manners and customs of the American Indian would be lost. Remington and Russell...painted with a sense of nostalgia for a West that was then passing or had already passed."- Mary Burke, Sid Richardson Museum Director

 

Experience the 19th Century American West at the Sid Richardson Museum and Gift Store today!  The museum, located in the heart of Sundance Square, boasts paintings by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other premier Western artists. 

 

The museum store offers unique western items, including prints, bronzes, jewelry, books, children's toys, prints on canvas both framed and unframed, and works by local artisans.

11/01 Bass Performance Hall 7:30pm

Hal Holbrook in "Mark Twain Tonight!"

Hal Holbrook returns to Bass Hall with his acclaimed "Mark Twain Tonight!" show, which he has toured the country every year since 1954.

Each year, the Tony Award-winning actor adds and edits material, changing it to fit the times.  Much of it is serious; some is not.  "There's a lot of funny stuff in the show that doesn't have to do with serious matters," Holbrook said in an interview with The Maui News.  "Because he was very funny.  He was the first stand-up comic, you might say, in America."

Presented by:  Performing Arts Fort Worth
