Western Mercantile Seeking Vendors
The Western Folklife Center is now accepting vendor applications for the 2018 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering Western Mercantile. Read more and apply.
Now exhibiting: “Land, Language and Clay,” works by Tuscarora artists Dennis and Ben Parks; “Way Out West: Images of the American Ranch,” photographs from the Farm Security Administration, 1936-1943; our continuing “From the Western Folklife Center Collection,” handcrafted work of master artisans throughout the West as represented in our permanent collection of contemporary gear; and more, at 510 Railroad Street, Elko.
With the hot summer sun comes a different type of traveler down the West's roadways: the bicycle tourer. We share some cowboy poetry on the subject in this Ranch Rhymes (Live from Elko) podcast episode that aired in March 2003. Enjoy! More.
