International Cultural Center Galleries 601 Indiana Avenue, Lubbock TX 79409
In the early 1970s, noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered photographer Bill Wittliff
a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros
still worked cattle in traditional ways. This exhibition features photographs with
bilingual narrative text that reveal the muscle, sweat and drama that went into roping
a calf in thick brush or breaking a wild horse in the saddle.
Companion Exhibit: National Ranching Heritage Center's “The History of Beef Cattle
This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state
