Darrell Beauchamp, executive director of the Museum of Western Art, provided the program about the latest happenings at the museum.
The museum has gained a reputation as a first class facility, and has been voted one of the top ten museums of the west by True West Magazine. Visitors come from all over, including eight percent of folks from outside the U.S., and forty percent from outside of Texas.
The MWA recently acquired one hundred and thirty seven pieces of art and sculpture from the L.D. Brinkman Foundation Collection on a permanent loan. The museum's artwork is rotated out on a consistent basis, so there is always something new to see including four different exhibits this year.
The museum also hosts private events, educational workshops, as well as lectures and tours for the public and schools highlighting western art and the history of the west. The last Saturday in each month is Family Free Day, and one week summer camps are offered each year for school age kids.
It was founded in 1983, so the forty year anniversary is coming up.  Give the museum a visit and see what you've missed.
