“Lonesome Dove,” an exhibition created by the Wittliff Collections at the Alkek Library at Texas State University-San Marcos and presented in partnership with Humanities Texas, opens May 9 and is available through June 23 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum with general admission pricing.

An epic novel written by Larry McMurtry, “Lonesome Dove” tells the story of two aging Texas Rangers who drive a herd of stolen cattle 2,500 miles from the Rio Grande to Montana. The miniseries first aired in 1989.

The exhibition features 55 framed classic images taken during the filming of “Lonesome Dove” by Wittliff, capturing the sweeping imagery of the original miniseries while differing from the ordinary production stills.

For more information about viewing hours or to arrange group visits, contact Community Outreach Liaison Nikki Silva at 806-376-5181.
