PASSING THE TORCH.....
After 15 wonderful years living the life of the Sculpture Ranch,
the Beninis are passing the torch to the Sullivans, whose new energy and vision
will expand this cultural experiment.
November 7, 8, and 9 was the Benini’s farewell to friends of the Sculpture Ranch.
For the ones who have been following their search for the perfect place out West for the past two years,
let it be known that, after all, Texas is still the best…and it’s their choice for the future.

After twelve years having our ranch open to visitors weekly, and being rewarded by the reception
of Texas to our project, we will be open the first full weekend of each month. You can count on this. Other times
are dependent upon our travel schedule and will be posted on this website.
and exhibition schedule have become more demanding, and it requires this move on our part.
Probably we will continue to
have special events now and then which will be announced here and in the regional media.
Beginning in July, you may visit us Friday, Saturday and Sunday from ten to six, each first weekend.
We will continue to schedule school tours, art tours, travel tours and educational tours. Call 830-868-5244.
