Ranch Women of New Mexico

Apr 15, 2011 through Oct 30, 2011

In conjunction with Home Lands: How Women Made the West, the museum's Mezzanine Gallery will feature the work of Albuquerque photographer Ann Bromberg and Raton author Sharon Niederman, who have documented the lives of 11 ranch women who have "cow-girled" or owned ranches in the state over the past 50 years. Through black-and-white photographs and essays, the often-underestimated role of women in the West comes to life through the women's dynamic contributions to the environment, their multicultural families, and their economic survival in a "boots on the ground" way of life.
