The Lennis L. Broadfoot collection is displayed annually by the Harlin Museum in its Hathcock Art Gallery. L.L. Broadfoot, 1891-1984, was a Shannon County, Missouri, artist who is best known for immortalizing the often enigmatic people, places, and traditions of the turn-of-the-century Ozarks region. He also wrote first-hand narratives about his subjects, gathering his charcoal drawings and stories into a book, “Pioneers of the Ozarks.” The original pieces used to create the book are on display during the exhibit, with reprints of the book available for sale.
The exhibit will be on display from noon-4 p.m., Thursdays-Sundays, starting on June 3 through July 31, with the exception of June 27-July 7 when the museum is closed for summer break. Admission is free to the all-volunteer, not-for-profit museum, but donations to help maintain the collection are appreciated.
