Trappings of Texas

28th Annual Trappings of Texas

PRESERVE THE TRADITION!
BECOME A SPONSOR

The Trappings of Texas exhibition and sale at the Museum of the Big Bend has the well-earned reputation as the longest running exhibit and sale of traditional cowboy gear and Western art. The 2014 weekend event is scheduled for February 20 – 22. The Museum of the Big Bend is on the campus of Sul Ross State University, which is the birthplace of the NIRA and home to one of the country’s most successful college rodeo programs.

Today, I invite you to continue in this longstanding Texas tradition with a Trappings of Texas 2014 Sponsorship. Through Trapping of Texas, the Museum of the Big Bend demonstrates a commitment to preserve and promote our Western heritage. In order to continue this very important celebration, we need your support. Your sponsorship helps sustain this event, preserves the cowboy way of life and passes this rich heritage on to future generations.

By becoming a Trappings Sponsor, you join the Trappings family whose roots run deep in the vast Big Bend country. As you consider your level of sponsorship, I hope you will bear in mind that your support goes far beyond Trappings of Texas. Your participation supports the unique artistry and craftsmanship of the American West that must be preserved for future generations. Along with supporting the artists of Trappings of Texas, you are supporting the programs and exhibits at the Museum of the Big Bend throughout the year.

I look forward to seeing you in February as we celebrate the Arts of the West at the 2014 Trappings of Texas!
