Buzz Session: 2023 A Great Frontier Odyssey: San Ramon Valley Museum
Tuesday, January 17, 2023
The focus of the lecture will be about a past exhibit at the San Ramon Valley Museum, "A Great Frontier Odyssey: Sketching of the West". In 1873, Harper's Weekly magazine hired two artists to roam the west from their offices in New York to San Francisco, draw and chronicle what they saw and send their sketches back to Harpers to be published. They created almost a hundred drawings that show the west and a way of life soon to disappear.
