Excellent art is a classic hill country setting. In the city where the west really began; the start of the Great Western Cattle Trail and the Frontier of the old west.
The day we went they were actually closed but let us in for a quick look, it was amazing I am looking forward to going back when I can walk through slowly and savor the experience.
This is a world class gallery with some of the finest pieces of Western art I have seen. Well worth an hour or two of your time.
We went there Nov 1, paid our admission fee and went into the gallery looking for the art. It was all removed and put into a vault so they could have an art sale fund raiser.
