Lonesome Dove: Photographs by Bill Wittliff
March 6 – July 10, Dupree Lobby

Lonesome Dove—Larry McMurtry’s epic novel of two aging Texas Rangers who drive a herd of stolen cattle 2,500 miles from the Rio Grande to Montana to found the first ranch there—truly captured public imagination. The Lonesome Dove Miniseries, which first aired on CBS in 1989, lassoed an even wider audience. Capturing the sweeping visual imagery of the original miniseries, the Lonesome Dove exhibition presents classic images taken during filming by Bill Wittliff, renowned photographer, writer, and executive producer of Lonesome Dove. The images, however, are worlds apart from ordinary production stills, depicting an extraordinary union of art, literature, and history.

Lonesome Dove: Photographs by Bill Wittliff is created by the Wittliff Collections at the Alkek Library, Texas State University, presented in partnership with Humanities Texas.
