The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame will present the new exhibition "Sonnet: Death Valley" by Rima Canaan Lee.

In January 2020, on the eve of the COVID pandemic, Lee photographed Death Valley and started putting together her show. Superimposed on each of the 14 large-scale photographs - and creating a poignant dialogue between word and image - are lines from Philip Sidney's Astrophil and Stella, a sonnet sequence written in the 1580s, in which Astrophil (the lover ["phil"] of stars ["aster"]) writes of his unattainable love for Stella (Latin for "star") and the anguish of his desire.

The exhibition will be on view through October 2.
