Exhibit features best of 1 family’s work
The Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center has opened a new exhibit that features the best in one family of Numunu artists that fits perfectly with the upcoming Father’s Day.
The exhibit called “Nanahtuanuu” features the art of Comanche artist Ron “Tachaco” Burgess and his sons, Nocona and Quanah Parker Burgess. The museum, 701 NW Ferris, will host a special “night at the museum” from 6-8 p.m. Thursday. Guests will be treated to light hors d’oeuvres. The event is free and open to the public.
“We chose that date as a Father’s Day tie in since the exhibit features a father and his sons,” said Candy Taylor, museum director. “We are calling the exhibit, Nanahtuanuu (pronounced: nahnah-too-uh-nuh), which translates to ‘a father and his sons.’”
Taylor said all the exhibited pieces are owned by the Comanche Nation — 55 in total. She said this is a great opportunity for the museum to show some of its prized pieces.
