As part of the Rendezvous Royale week in Cody, I had the opportunity to attend the Buffalo Bill Art Show and Sale with art student Gabriela Rodriguez as the guest of Dick and Jeanie Nelson. One of the featured artists was Associate Professor of Art John Giarrizzo. The highlight of the evening was Gabriela teaching me about the various methods used by the show's featured artists.

The week long celebration of the arts in Cody was culminated with the Patron's Ball on Saturday at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West which I attended with NWC Foundation Executive Director Shelby Wetzel and Vice President for College Relations Mark Kitchen.
