Buffalo Soldiers Collection on display at Tucson Desert Art Museum
Now until June 30th
Another of the artist’s favorites: the Tucson Rodeo Parade!
Laughlin loved sketching and photographing the animals and people that made the parade such a spectacle of old and new.
This 30 x 40 piece, drawn in pastel and charcoal, captures the duty of the parade horse drawing the wagons in the country’s oldest non-mechanized parade. For more about the parade, go to: https://www.tucsonrodeoparade.com/
Laughlin made a number of prints based on his study of the rodeo participants…can you find the bull riders in the black and white print here?
