Brother SimonTHAT DAY: Pictures in the American West
Photographs by Laura Wilson

September 15 - December 10, 2017

Renowned photographer Laura Wilson has captured the majesty, as well as the tragedy, of her home region of Texas and the wider West for more than 30 years.

In the Briscoe Museum’s photographic exhibition, THAT DAY: Pictures in the American West,  Laura Wilson takes us into a West defined by diverse communities outside the suburban middle-class. This exhibition of eighty photographs introduces us to worlds that are framed equally by beauty and violence, reflecting the artist’s challenge to today’s homogenized America.
