Spieler salute

By Simone Wichers-Voss

It’s been thirty five years in the making, but on Nov. 19, the Bosque Arts Center unveiled a special tribute exhibit of Spieler’s original artwork and photography. Much of the art came from private collections and getting all the works together was thanks to BAC’s Program Director Deb Phinney.
