Please join us for our first IN-PERSON Business After Hours of 2021. The Eiteljorg Museum welcomes Indy Rainbow Chamber members for a private viewing of Hard Twist: Western Ranch Women – Photographs by Barbara Van Cleve
EXPLORE WOMEN’S DIVERSE EXPERIENCES IN THE AMERICAN WEST
A traveling exhibition from the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame called Hard Twist: Western Ranch Women – Photographs by Barbara Van Cleve.
This exhibit includes 62 black and white photographs that celebrate women of the range, their ranches and the breathtaking Western landscapes in which they live.
Barbara Van Cleve drew inspiration from her mother and the lack of representation of published photographs of women ranchers, which led to her traveling the Rocky Mountain West on horseback between 1986 – 1994 interviewing women of the West in their natural elements. She created a book titled Hard Twist: Western Ranch Women in 1995, from which the exhibition was developed.
Van Cleve is nationally known for her photographs of Western landscapes, ranchers, cowboys and cattle women. Her heritage is rich with firsthand experience of the cowgirl life. She grew up on her family’s ranch, the Lazy K Bar, founded in 1880 in the Crazy Mountains of Montana. Van Cleve is based in Big Timber, Montana.
There is a 50-person limit to this event. Masks are required although can be removed temporarily to enjoy food and beverage.
