A Kaleidoscope of the West
Don Reeves, McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture, concludes his 38 years of Museum service with a talk years in the making. The West can be conceptualized as a beautiful harmony. The individual notes and melodies, like points of light, form a colorful kaleidoscope that is Western Heritage — a heritage influenced by the National Cowboy Museum. Reeves reflects on the collections, ideas, and profound friendships he has made along his journey, relating stories and memories of the West to reveal a few new, unorthodox views. An ice cream social immediately follows this farewell gathering courtesy of Museum volunteers.
