Rodeo: Photographs by Rima Canaan Lee

This week

If you’re tired of the grit and dust of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, saunter over to the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame and get a fresh-eyed take at the rodeo and livestock-raising culture. “Rodeo: Photographs by Rima Canaan Lee,” opened Nov. 20 and runs through Feb. 7, gathers 18 works by a photographer who turned her lens on one of Fort Worth’s biggest and most signature events. Lee attended the 2013 edition of the Stock Show almost every day, making photographs as she watched the rodeo action and visited the livestock barns. Diana Vela, the Cowgirl’s associate executive director for exhibits and education, says Lee, who was born in Beirut and raised in Germany, “did not grow up with a rodeo or stock show tradition, making her a great candidate for a fresh perspective on the subject.”
