Listen: Frank Reaugh’s thoughts on cattle chewing bones (like humans chew gum?)

By Suzanne Krause

One of patrons’ favorite features about our current exhibition Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West, is the “guide by cell” audio tour for visitors. This audio tour lets visitors call in and hear informational snippets about the paintings. For the exhibition, Ransom Center Curator of Art Peter Mears annotated his exhibition highlights, and Project Specialist Greg Curtis spoke as the voice of Frank Reaugh to narrate the artist’s own comments. We’ll be sharing a few of Mears’s favorites during the run of the exhibition, starting with Reaugh musing on his early painting Cattle Chewing Bones.

The Ransom Center offers free daily docent-led exhibition tours occuring at noon, with additional tours at 6 p.m. on Thursdays and 2 p.m. on the weekends.
