Cowboy Bar near Wendover Utah

I was invited to Nancy Holt's memorial at her masterpiece, Sun Tunnels just outside of Wendover Utah. It was an amazing event of over 100 friends and enthusiasts. It was the Summer Solstice so the sunrise and sunset would align perfectly with two of the four tunnels. Speeches were given by Lucy Lippard, Matt Coolidge, Hikmet Loe and more. It was sad but celebratory. Afterwards, many of us went to the Cowboy Bar for beers and pizza. The owners and regulars of the bar new Nancy Holt, as you could imagine. What an amazing experience. I really felt like I witnessed legacy.
