Explore Ruckus Rodeo, an immense walk-through work of art consisting of colorful 3D figures that depict the rodeo at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Internationally-renowned pop artist Red Grooms used wire, canvas, burlap, acrylic paint, and fiberglass to construct the work’s larger-than-life caricatures of rodeo archetypes. The exhibit also celebrates the grand heritage of the American West with historic objects that weave the story of cowboy culture. A kids’ corral of hands-on activities—including a hobbyhorse obstacle course, lassoing, a large animal veterinarian station, and more—bring the rodeo to life.
