Glass panels at the entrance of the expanded Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross State University will honor the area’s ranching heritage.
The new complex, scheduled for completion in early 2023, will double the space of the museum and will include a temporary exhibit gallery, a rotating Tom Lea gallery and an inviting interior event space with a connecting outdoor patio that highlights the panoramic view of the western mountains.
Thirty glass guardrail panels will encircle the exterior event area, although just 20 are still available for family brands with a donation of $10,000.
Each panel will feature just one brand on a fade resistant white ceramic insert between two sheets of thick glass. The panel dimensions are 42 inches high by 44 inches wide and 3/8 of an inch deep.
A recognition board inside the museum complex will have the name of the donor, the name of the ranch and the date the ranch was established.
Pledges must be received by July 8.
To reserve one of these 20 remaining panels for your brand, contact Mary Bones at 432-837-8145 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
