You will travel back in time thousands of years in the Kittie West Nelson Ferguson People of the Pecos Gallery where the focus is on the prehistoric hunter-gatherers of Texas who embraced their bountiful, natural environment.
Spanning the entire second floor of the New Witte, the gallery provides a unique look at a fascinating culture. You will encounter life-sized recreations of ancient camps to explore how people of thousands of years ago hunted, cooked and socialized. Explore the sheltered overhangs in the Lower Pecos Canyonlands, which provided a way of life for more than 9,000 years and an artistic record unmatched in North America. See projected images of rock art that span nearly 4,000 years of artistic expression and visual narratives of ancient stories.
Two labs, Lifeways and Nancy Smith Hurd Rock Art, will provide interactive opportunities for families to experience ancient lifeways.
