TAKE TWO: GEORGE CATLIN REVISITS THE WEST runs through MAY 31, 2015
Take Two features 17 paintings from George Catlin‘s Cartoon Collection, showing the cultural life of the Native Americans he encountered in his travels. This special exhibition includes thirteen paintings that have never been exhibited in Texas.
The title of this exhibition, Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West, refers to Catlin’s recreation of his first Indian Gallery. Relying on his memory of experiences with the American Indians in the 1830s, he drew from images in his first Indian Gallery, adding new subjects until he completed his second Indian Gallery. According to Dippie, “The two goals of the exhibition are to illuminate the guiding principles behind Catlin’s entire enterprise and to focus on Southern Plains subjects with a Texas twist.”
The Sid Richardson Museum is open daily (except for major holidays) and admission is always free. Special tours and programs are also available. The Museum is the legacy of the late oilman and philanthropist, Sid Williams Richardson.
