Activities will include art stations where guests can sketch sculptures, make a sheriff badge or add to the Community Collage Pennant.

Food will be provided by Cheesy Jane’s and Texas Weather Band will be playing live.

Visitors can listen to cowboy and cowgirl themed tales around the ‘campfire’ courtesy of Miss Tiffany of Storytime Chicks. There will also be guided tours of the museum for adults and families. All of these activities as well as admission to the museum are free of charge.
The Briscoe Western Art Museum was named in honor of the late Texas Governor Dolph Briscoe, Jr and his wife Janey Slaughter Briscoe. It is dedicated to the preservation of the art, history and culture of the American West and does this through exhibitions, educational programs and public events.
