John Versluis, Dean of the museum, talks to Bob and Keli about their mission to honor Texans who have fought for our country and especially those who gave their lives. Finally, this West Texan carries on the age old tradition of cattle ranching as well as that of painting. Inspired by the harsh desrt landscape of the West Texas, artist-rancher Alice Leese wants to bring others to see the beauty she finds so organically.
