Museum Exhibit or ProgramThis exhibition is sponsored by Humanities Texas and the Pearce Museum at Navarro College. It will be open from March 5 – April 14, 2017 at the Pearce Museum at Navarro College, 3100 W. Collin St., Corsicana, TX 75110 In the early 1970s, Bill Wittliff visited a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways. Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse's back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition. This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition features photographs with bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat, and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.
