    National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

Join the National Cowboy Museum for an evening filled with programming! Kick off the evening with the Curator Conversation with special guest Dr. Marie Sarita Gaytán, Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at the University of Utah, discussing her extensive study of the tequila industry. Immediately following the presentation, raise a glass to the opening of Aliento a Tequila and Sombreros Texanas and Bosses of the Plains: Cowboy Hats from the Permanent Collection. Tequila explores and celebrates the landscape, culture and traditions that gave birth to tequila, Mexico’s mestizo national drink, through the photographs of Joel Salcido. Sombreros examines the evolution of the cowboy hat from woven sombreros to “Stetsons” and working cowboy giant “taco shells,” and flamboyantly creased and decorated hats in popular culture today. Enjoy the Museum’s latest exhibitions while sampling different tequilas.
