The Branigan Cultural Center hosts the exhibition Charreada, featuring dynamic photographs by Mel Stone, February 4 – April 23, 2022. Local photographer Mel Stone’s photographs capture the drama and excitement of the Mexican rodeo arena and the charreada. From backstage preparations for the women’s competitive riding event, to a man riding a bucking bronco or practicing lassoing moves on the sidelines, Stone brings to life a tradition that dates to the early settlement of Mexico.

The museum is located at 501 N. Main St. and is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. For more information, visit the website, or call 575-541-2154.
