The exhibition Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy will be on view at The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University-San Marcos's Alkek Library from March 27 through July 31, 2010. A public opening reception is planned for Saturday, April 17. The exhibition, which the Wittliff Collections curated in partnership with Humanities Texas, includes more than sixty digital carbon-ink prints of photographs by Bill Wittlif with bilingual narrative text that reveals the muscle, sweat, and drama that went into roping a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.
