Join us for this month's


Consider This:

Remington's Entry into Sculpture with The Broncho Buster


sponsored by The Enchanted Edible Forest at Cross Island Farms.

The Frederic Remington Art Museum’s “Consider This” program takes a closer look at Remington and his beginnings as a sculptor.


How did he go from illustrator and painter to sculptor?

What makes The Broncho Buster so unique?



This program offers guided exploration of a single work of art on display at the Remington Museum but this time we are fortunate enough to have two pieces to consider! Every summer, we anticipate the arrival of a second Broncho Buster.


Why do we have two Broncho Busters, you might ask? What a great question! Come to one of our sessions to find out!


“Consider This” is for all ability levels, and no art background is required. Participants simply need an interest in joining the conversation. A different artwork is featured each month, with two program sessions to choose from.


Museum Experience Manager & Educator Julie Pratt along side docents Luanne Herzog and Kathy Crowe, will present two 30-minute lunchtime conversations about Remington’s early sculptures.


  • Friday, July 12th at 12pm with Luanne Herzog (at the Museum only)
  • Tuesday, July 23rd at 12pm with Julie Pratt and Kathy Crowe (at the Museum and via Zoom)


Each session features focused looking, consideration, conversation, and interpretation of the artwork. Programs are offered at noon, so that even working people can join the conversation during their lunch and bring art into their workday.

Participation via Zoom is free; on-site participation is free with admission to the Museum, thanks to generous support of The Enchanted Edible Forest at Cross Island Farms.

“Remington, as an artist, is endlessly fascinating,” says Pratt. “He was the kind of artist who experimented with every available medium of his day. When he decided to try his hand at sculpting, he discovered how much he loved the process and, no surprise here, how good he was at it! Remington had a huge impact on the world of sculpture and pop culture, influencing generations of filmmakers and pop culture icons. And it all began with this incredible sculpture, The Broncho Buster.


While at the Museum make sure to visit our beautiful exhibit of Sally James Farnham sculptures. Our museum is proud to house the largest collection of Farnham’s work in the United States. 


Museum hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10am to 5pm, and Sunday 12 to 4pm.
