From 6 PM - 7 PM, the Museum will be offering a public educational program, “One Hour One Work,” in the Albert P. Newell Gallery. The program invites participants to slow down and dive deep into a single work of art on display at the Remington Museum. A Museum docent will facilitate 60 minutes of focused looking, consideration, conversation, and interpretation of a single artwork. In June, the featured artwork will be Frederic Remington’s 1892 oil painting In a Stiff Current which is on loan to the Remington Museum from the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth, TX. A total of nine iconic Remington Western paintings on loan from the Sid Richardson Museum are on display in the Museum’s Albert P. Newell Gallery and Addie P. Newell Gallery through September 8, 2019. The educational program is free with admission to the event, but reservations are requested.
