Join Dr. Andrés Tijerina, author of the new book Beasley’s Vaqueros: The Memoirs, Art and Poems of Ricardo M. Beasley, for an afternoon discussion highlighting the life and work of South Texas artist Ricardo M. Beasley. In addition to a selection of Beasley’s work, historian Andrés Tijerina has collected and translated an extensive interview with the artist and several of his poems for this new book.
More than just a testament to the talents of a singular, self-taught artist, Beasley’s Vaqueros is a record of vaquero life in South Texas that spans the centuries.
The book signing will take place in Ewing Halsell Hall in the South Texas Heritage Center.
