Upcoming Exhibitions


Blackfork Bestiary

April 3-June 13, 2020

On view in the museum’s Karl & Ida Mae Steffan gallery. Photographer Robert Langham III is a Tyler, Texas native known for his provocative handling of the delicate relationships between people and animals that can transpire as humans encroach on habitats, and explores the complications and possibilities of these necessarily paternalistic interventions to restore and rehabilitate required by humanity’s leashing of the natural world.
