This exhibit is the one time of the year when the Harlin Museum displays its Pioneers Of The Ozarks collection by L.L. Broadfoot in its entirety. The exhibit is a series of 88 charcoal drawings and oil paintings depicting actual people, places, and events of the Ozarks which the artist captured in the late 1930s-late 1940s.
In addition to the drawings, Broadfoot recorded and wrote down the stories of the people he drew and painted and gathered the information into a book, thereby capturing history in a collection that is one-of-a-kind.
The museum is an all-volunteer organization. Admission to exhibits is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to support the museum’s mission of preserving the history of the Ozarks.
