New exhibit at Big Bend museum
Museum of the Big Bend, 400 N. Harrison St., Alpine, has scheduled “Selections from the Betty Byerley Retablo Collection” exhibit through March 24, 2019.
The exhibit features select retablos from the Betty Byerley Collection which was given to the Museum by Leon Gaddis Byerley Jr. of Midland in memory of his wife. Retablos are personal devotional paintings typically purchased from Mexican artists or peddlers who sell them door to door and near village churches on holidays and feast days.
Museum hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Admission and parking are free. Donations are welcome.
