The Rocky and Gabriella Mountain Gallery features the exhibit Cattle, Cowboys, and Culture: Kansas City and Amarillo, Building an Urban West, which illuminates the historical, cattle-driven connections between Kansas City and the Texas Panhandle city of Amarillo. Michael “Cowboy Mike” Grauer, an Amarillo-area historian who curated the exhibit, regales attendees of all ages with readings of American West literature and a roping demonstration.

The first-floor Genevieve Guldner Gallery, meanwhile, becomes a unique, one-night creative space for kids. The Library provides markers. They provide the artwork.
