Explore the faces and places of Texas through the lithographs of Merritt Mauzey. Mauzey was a self-styled primitive artist born near Sweetwater, Texas in 1897. He used his prints to illustrate books that focused on lifestyle and culture in Texas, including Cotton-Farm Boy and Texas Ranch Boy. This exhibition features original prints from the Museum of the Southwest permanent collection combined with interactive, hands-on activities. Create your own Mauzey inspired artwork at our activity tables, spin a tale based on an original artwork or transform yourself into a cowboy from our costume box.
