For the past year and half, my wife Penny has been working on building a new exhibit for the Bush (41) Library here in College Station. The exhibit shows the history and legacy of ranching in Texas. As part of the work, Penny and Dr. Russell Cross from the TAMU Animal Science department and a video crew from Frame By Frame visited famous and historical ranches all over the state, from the Panhandle to West and South Texas, interviewing the ranchers. They recorded dozens of hours of interviews that I and others transcribed. Over the past few months I worked as video editor, pulling excerpts from the raw recordings into 39 three- to seven-minute videos that were incorporated into the exhibit.
The official opening of the exhibit is today. It runs through January 8, 2018.
More about the exhibit is in this press release from TAMU Agrilife.
The official website for the exhibit is here. Our plan is to use the blog part of that website to share more video from the interviews and ranch location recordings, with articles about the people and places that were visited, both to get people interested in visiting the actual exhibit, and to share the work with those that can’t make it to Aggieland to see the full presentation.
I’ll be at the grand opening event tonight and will take some pictures to share here in a follow up post.
