Monthaven Celebrates the American Cowboy in Upcoming Exhibit

Featuring the beaded skull art of Maria D’Souza.

Yee-haw! In a few weeks time, Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center is opening a new free exhibit paying homage to one of America's most defining traditions — the cowboy.

The Lyrical Cowboy: Rhythms, Rhymes and Rodeos will celebrate the American cowboy tradition and the music that made them both famous and relevant today, opening September 12 – October 24, 2021.

With more than 40 paintings, sculpture and photographs from the Booth Western Art Museum paired with lyrics from traditional and contemporary songs, this exhibition reveals how music helped make the cowboy such an enduring symbol of America around the world, and symbolic of freedom here at home. And, don’t forget the cowgirls, who have their own story to tell.

The exhibition is FREE and open to the public and will be on display at Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center, located at 1017 Antebellum Cir, Hendersonville, from September 12 through October 24,2021.
