Description:  Donald Lipski’s signature style of creating whimsical installations from commonplace objects uses metaphor to evoke Fort Worth’s unique western heritage. Beloved hats donated by native and “honorary” Texans celebrate the friendly nature and collaborative spirit of Cowtown. The witty title is both a comment on the passionate attachment cowboys and cowgirls have to their hats and an anagrammatic gesture of thanks to the industrious hat wrangler Garlene Parris.
