UPDATE: Sunday, April 29 closing event

Due to insurance coverage restrictions, we regret that we are unable to have live horses at the April 29 closing reception at 5:00 p.m. April 29. However, we DO have our special guests, members of the Northwest Black Horsemen, who are traveling from around Washington State to join us at 4:00 PM for the screening of the inspiring documentary, THE FEDERATION OF BLACK COWBOYS. The Horsemen will demonstrate bullwhip and lasso techniques, all skills that were part of daily life in cattle drives and ranch work in the old West. Many of the horsemen have performed in rodeos and all have been involved with horseback riding for many years. Ask questions, see the demonstrations, and learn more about the historic role of African Americans in the West!

The film start time has changed from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. A festive reception with delicious food from Seattle's own Jones Barbeque follows. Admission: $10 (includes food).
