Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

Sure, a Cowboy could be defined as “someone who herds animals, traditionally cattle, traditionally on horseback,” but what are the historical roots of this tradition and what is its role in the development of the American West? And what about cowgirls — what can we learn about the history of women in this culture? Join us as we look at different aspects of this wide ranging topic, and discover some of the diverse traditions associated with the world of cowboys (and cowgirls).
