Event Details

Conversation with Lionel Sosa and Werner Segarra followed by Artist Tours of Vaqueros

Join us at the Briscoe for a unique conversation with celebrated photographer Werner Segarra and full-time portrait artist Lionel Sosa followed by an Artist Tour of the Vaqueros de la Cruz del Diablo exhibition. The images in Segarra’s Vaqueros inspired artist and founding board member of the Briscoe, Lionel Sosa, to paint portraits of Segarra’s Sonoran subjects. The portraits are on display within the Vaqueros de la Cruz del Diablo exhibition, with a scavenger hunt that allows museum visitors to pair Sosa’s portraits with Segarra’s original images.

Scavenger hunt participants earn the chance to have their portrait painted by Sosa. The winner will be drawn on Jan. 23, when everyone is invited to listen in as Sosa chats with Segarra during “Art Inspiring Art: Capturing Vaqueros on Canvas”. After the conversation, peer into the world of the vaquero alongside Segarra as he leads tours of the Vaqueros exhibition.

Closing weekend events are included with general admission and free for museum members. CLICK HERE to learn more.
