MOFGA and Portland Museum of Art Host Showing of “Hanna Ranch”
Thursday, November 13
6:30 to 8 p.m.
Portland Museum of Art
7 Congress Square, Portland


The Portland Museum of Art and MOFGA are collaborating again this fall to bring you the film "Hanna Ranch." This feature documentary is about visionary cattleman Kirk Hanna and his personal struggle to protect a once-prominent way of life in Colorado. Born into life on the family ranch, Hanna became a leader in the environmental ranching movement that set out to protect the West from the relentless encroachment of development and misuse. The film will be followed by a Q & A with Karl Kister, one of the executive producers of the film, and a lively panel discussion.
Film details. MOFGA and PMA members are FREE, regular admission is $8. Members can pre-register on-line and use the discount code "MOFGA" at check-out.
