The new Ride ‘em Cowboy exhibit opens at the Alvin Museum March 16 and will run through May 5.
A variety of exhibits and events will take place during the eight weeks it runs.
Published children’s author, Cowgirl Peg, will be on site both March 18 and April 22. Children and their parents are invited to meet the author of six books that speak to children about horses and dogs with character building messages.
Beautifully illustrated by artist Pat Wiles, the books include her newest “Cowgirl Peg & The Great Race,” “Jazmine’s Incredible Story,” “Okey-Dokey,” “Oakie,” “Shortstuff Bucks,” “Isabella Lives a Dream,” and “Lonesome Little Horse.”
Cowgirl Peg will be signing her books while at the museum.
It’s all part of the ride ‘em cowboy theme.
A bilingual captioned photo display of the Vaqueros and their history will be part of the exhibit.
Real-life cowboy memorabilia and Alvin ISD student art will be on display.
In the children’s corner, there will be a photo opportunity with bandanas and hats for children along with activities to teach children about the historic life of a real cowboy.
The Alvin Museum is located at 300 W. Sealy in Alvin. Admission is $3 for non-members and museum members and children 12 and under are free. The museum is open Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The cowboy themed exhibit will be open free to the public on April 22, 28 and 29.
