ABOUT THE EVENT
Join Museum Curator Michael Grauer in examining the development of what is known today as a “cowboy hat” using the Museum’s permanent collection. Beginning with wide-brimmed leather hats (vaqueteadas), the exhibition will explore the evolution of the cowboy hat from woven sombreros, to “John B.s” or “Stetsons” (whether they were Stetson-made or not), to today’s working cowboy giant “taco shells,” and flamboyantly creased (and decorated) hats of rodeo riders and entertainers, and in popular culture today.
