Winter Texan Wednesday: Louis de Planc
January 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Winter Texan Wednesday is a program that welcomes Winter Texans and retirees to enjoy an afternoon at the Museum of South Texas History. The program will feature a presentation, titled “Louis de Planc,” followed by a highlight tour of part of a museum exhibit.
During the 19th century, the Rio Grande Valley experienced tumultuous wars and devastating hurricanes. Still, a diverse and cosmopolitan community emerged on both sides of the Rio Grande. Documenting it all was Prussian photographer Louis de Planc, who is famous for photographing historic figures and the everyday people along the Rio Grande. Historical interpreter Camille Marie Rich will discuss on the exciting life and family of Louis de Planc and the documents and photographs he left behind on the Rio Grande Valley.
Winter Texan Wednesday is included in the fee for regular museum admission. No reservations are required. Resort/park groups are welcome to enjoy this program. For more information, please contact the museum at 956-383-6911 or visit mosthistory.org/events.
