100 Years 100 Ranchers: Photographs by Scott T. Baxter
Phoenix-based photographer Scott Baxter traveled across Arizona for more than 10 years to complete this project, which includes 100 striking black-and-white photos of families who have been ranching since, or before, Arizona became a state in 1912. Designated as an official Arizona Centennial Legacy Project, this show celebrates the 2012 state centennial through the portraits of these true Arizonans.
“For me this was a great deal, this was a life changing experience, and I just felt really fortunate and blessed to have been able to photograph these ranchers,” said Baxter, who has also been recognized as a 2012 Arizona Culturekeeper for his efforts in creating a body of images that documents an important part of the state community.
The Arizona Centennial Celebration will continue throughout 2012, and the Tucson Museum of Art is honored to play a role in this important event.
A host of lectures, demonstrations, workshops, dances, cowboy and cowgirl poetry recitals, ranch cook-outs, and other educational programs are being planned to accompany these exhibitions.
