Ricardo Beasley was a vaquero, artist and poet whose works and writings captured the details, danger and drama of the vaquero life from the 1930s through the 1960s. For the first time, this layered exhibition brings together Beasley’s intense and energetic artwork - most never before publicly exhibited - and brings to life the experiences of the vaqueros who worked the cattle and horses of Texas.

The exhibition is accompanied by the new book Beasley’s Vaqueros: The Memoirs, Art and Poems of Ricardo M. Beasley by Andrés Tijerina, published by The Texas State Historical Association.
