An event every week that begins at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 6, 2021
A new traveling exhibition documenting the 1873 overland journey of artists Jules Tavernier and Paul Frenzeny, A Great Frontier Odyssey: Sketching the American West, will be on display at the Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum from September 5 to November 7, 2021 from 10 AM – 4PM.
The prints in A Great Frontier Odyssey trace the artists’ journey to San Francisco. Depicting newsworthy places or events that favored the plight of the common man, their artistic and journalistic talent and keen powers of observation made them a powerful team; Tavernier created each engraving’s watercolor painting before handing it off to Frenzeny, who added newsworthy details and drew the scene in pencil on wood blocks.
A Great Frontier Odyssey: Sketching the American West is traveled by Exhibit Envoy. Exhibit Envoy’s mission is to build new perspectives, create innovative exhibitions and solutions, and advance institutions in service to their communities. For more information, please visit www.exhibitenvoy.org.
