The Museum Of The Big Bend

Wednesday, December 28, 2005

The Museum of the Big Bend is located in Alpine, Texas.  The museum is part of Sul Ross State University.   The museum doesn't maintain much of a permanent collection on display.  Instead, every three months or so, they change out the main exhibit.  The last time I visited the museum, they were showing the Buffalo Soldiers.

This time the main exhibit was a series of black and white photographs taken with a large format camera. Great pictures depicting life in and around Alpine and Fort Davis. Mostly focused on ranching.

They are building a new building to house the museum. Expected to be completed by September 2006. This will allow the museum to show a greater number of articles from their own permanent collection.
