The Lonesome Dove Traveling Exhibit is currently at the Bosque Museum... but only until March 3, 2018, so hurry if you want to see the photos Bill Wittliff made while filming the movie Lonesome Dove. Mr. Wittliff was tapped to write the screen adaptation of Larry McMurtry's novel of the same name. The novel follows two former Texas Rangers (played by Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones) and their adventures on a cattle drive to Montana Territory. That is a vast oversimplification of the story, but it was/is so popular, I am sure you have read the novel, seen the mini-series, or both. I had recently read the novel prior to the airing of the 1989 TV mini-series, so this exhibit takes me back to the anticipation and planning my life around each episode to see how the pages from the novel would come to life on my television screen.
The Bosque Museum is located at 301 South Avenue Q, Clifton, Texas. HERE is a link to their website which includes driving directions. They are open Tuesday - Saturday from 10:00 a.m -5:00 p.m.
