Public Art Walking Tour:   Booklet – http://texastech.edu/fpc/public-art/walking-tour-booklet/FLASH/index.html

Explore our Collection – over 100 artworks to view

The Public Art Program at the Texas Tech University System was initiated by the Board of Regents in 1998 to enrich the campus environments and extend the educational mission at all of its universities. Through the program, public artworks are funded using one percent of the estimated total cost of each new major capital project. Since then, more than 100 items created by some of today’s leading artists have been added to the TTU System’s multiple campuses. Contact Emily Wilkinson, public art manager, to inquire about touring the public art, presentations about the collection, brochures and additional information.

Selections from exhibits that highlight the major departments of the SWC/SCL are also present. The Southwest Collection; University Archives; Rare Books unit; Sowell Collection in Literature, Community, and the Natural World; Crossroads of Music Archive; Bibliographic Services; and the Photography and Oral History collections are all represented. Highlights from other prominent exhibits, such as “Medieval Southwest: Manifestations of the Old World in the New” and “Texas Tech: Then and Now,” are featured as well.

Chris Oglesby collection

The Crossroads of Music Archive, located in the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library (SWC/SCL) at Texas Tech, is proud to announce that the Chris Oglesby collection is now open for research. Oglesby donated his research materials for his book “Fire in the Water, Earth in the Air: Legends of West Texas Music” to the archive in January 2016. His collection contains biographies, correspondence, literary works of the author and others, photographs, song lyrics, audio interviews and more.

An exhibit curated by the archivist for the Crossroads of Music Archive, Curtis Peoples, Ph.D., and fabricated by Lyn Stoll, is located in the Coronelli Globe Rotunda at the SWC/SCL located on the Texas Tech campus at 15th Street and Detroit Avenue. The exhibit is a small collection of snapshots highlighting some of the artists found within the book, including Tommy Hancock, Terry and Jo Harvey Allen, Joe Ely, Kimmie Rhodes and others.

CENSORED!  WALT WHITMAN’S LEAVES OF GRASS
May 1, 2014 –
A new exhibit at the SWC/SCL explores Walt Whitman’s controversial masterpiece, Leaves of Grass. From its first appearance in 1855 until Whitman’s death in 1892, this collection of poems was often the target of censors due to its frank portrayal of sensual pleasure.

The Marc Reisner Collection is now open for research.

The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Building

A gallery along the north side of the building houses permanent displays on the Southwest Collection as well as the other units of the University Library, which have offices in the facility. Those offices include the University Archives, the Archive of the Vietnam Conflict and the Library’s Rare Books Collection. Additionally, the facility is the home for editorial offices of the West Texas Historical Association and its annual yearbook.

Offices in the building open onto a rotunda beneath the third tower. The Library’s 1688 Coronelli Globe is displayed in the rotunda.

Behind the offices are the non-public areas of the facility where documents and materials are processed. The building includes an accessioning area where materials are received and logged in. From there materials, whether paper records, photographs or films/audiotapes/video tapes, go to their specific areas for processing before they are taken to the stacks or the appropriate vault for storage.

Upstairs the stacks area offers a climate-controlled environment that provides a constant temperature and humidity as well as a positive ventilation outflow which helps prevent the intrusion of bacteria or fungi which could damage valuable books and documents.

Additionally, the facility has a conservation laboratory funded by the Hoblitzelle Foundation. The Hoblitzelle Conservation Lab will provide an appropriate environment for state-of-the-art preservation of valuable and one-of-a-kind materials.

ABOUT THE CENTER

The Buddy Holly Center features 2,500 square feet of gallery space dedicated to the presentation of changing contemporary visual arts programs. These exhibitions are a continuation of a tradition of quality initiatives that were presented by the Lubbock Fine Arts Center from 1984 – 1998. With the relocation of the Fine Arts Center to the Buddy Holly Center in 1999, we continue the commitment to present challenging visual arts exhibitions that serve as a crucial resource for showcasing contemporary arts of the region and the nation.

Art is a form of communication independent of language… It is a way of manifesting human uniqueness. It is a way of reminding us that life is infinitely fragile, infinitely precious. – Norman Cousins

The Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public. The vision of the Buddy Holly Center is to discover art through music by celebrating legacy, culture and community.

Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock’s most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.

The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. The Plaza is open to the public dawn to dusk, year round. The West Texas Walk of Fame, and its induction process, are a project of Civic Lubbock, Inc.

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:  –

Andy Warhol in Lubbock
October 14, 2017 – February 11, 2018

Even after sales, thousands of artworks still remained in the Foundation’s collections. On the 20th anniversary of the Warhol Foundation, these artworks were gifted to various American museums. The Museum of Texas Tech received an initial gift in 2007-08 of 160 Polaroid and black and white photographs, followed in 2013 by a donation of seven screen prints. Selections from these two gifts are on exhibit here.

Mercando el relampago
September 30, 2017 – January 28, 2018

Marcando el relámpago is a collaborative exhibition, marking exchanges between an atmospheric scientist, Eric Bruning, and a visual artist, Tina Fuentes. The science and the art combine to present insights into lightning—a dynamic, powerful, and spectacular component of our planet’s weather systems. The language and practice of science often takes the form of rigorous logic and precise experiments. Technical analyses result in charts and graphs that compare theories to experiments. These processes seek to provide clear rationales for phenomena observed in the world. Art encourages understanding through expressive means: manipulation of color, shape, movement, composition, texture and more. In this exhibition, science and art combine to advance our understanding of lightning.

And what is the science of this project?

By the time one lightning strike reaches the ground, five have often taken place overhead but are hidden by a cloud. Observations of lightning by scientists peel back the cloud and show where each lightning path begins, and how far it extends. Sometimes the path is short, and sometimes it is long.

The short lightning paths remind scientists of choppy gusts of wind in turbulent clouds; the long paths of lightning are like the smooth motions of layered, extensive clouds. These observations suggested a scientific experiment to discover if the character of the motion of the clouds and the length of lightning were linked. The resulting Kinematic* Texture and Lightning Experiment measured how electrical energy was distributed among different lightning paths, and how the measured electrical energy compared to the distribution of energy in the turbulent motions of clouds.

*Kinematics, pronounced kin-e-mat-ics, refers to the study of the motion of objects or groups of objects without considering what causes the motion. In this case, “kinematic texture” refers to the variations of wind.

And what is the art of this project?

In this exhibition, the measurements from the scientific experiments connect with drawings, paintings and two video installations that explore the textures, movements, lights and energy of thunderstorm clouds and the paths lightning takes through them. The art works combine physical and emotional sensations that we encounter as we watch and experience the clouds and lightning of a thunderstorm.

The markings of colors and intensities of light reflected by the clouds; the gestures of strong and subtle, rapid and slow movement of lightning and clouds; the sense of immersion in a storm; the impact of a thunderstorm on birds; and even the smells of the rain, the dust in the wind, and the electricity. . .all of these experiences flow through the paintings and video. Even the scale of the art works evoke small and large storms, distant and intimate experiences of clouds and lightning.

And for you?

This exhibition melds the art of Tina Fuentes and the science of Eric Bruning. What is perhaps more difficult to exhibit is the creative dialogue between them: how art and science investigate hand in hand these weather phenomenons. How do they marry understandings of the world? This dimension of the project is left for you to explore. You, the audience, will discover this marriage between art and science.

Wallace Shoe Collection
August 25, 2017 – January 7, 2018

The recent gift of L. Jean and Rebecca Wallace significantly moved forward the earliest date for shoes in the collection of the Museum from 1850 to 1750. In celebration of this donation of 101 pair of shoes, more than 50 from the collection have been selected for an exhibit August 25, 2017-January 7, 2018.

Shoes are rarely focused on in historic books and exhibits. This collection enables a fuller understanding of how footwear developed from 1750 through 1960. Many of the examples were worn by children and demonstrate the creativity and care that went into the making of children’s shoes. Consider also the conditions under which the shoes were worn, often under gowns where they were largely unseen, but also worn to cross unpaved streets where they could easily get muddy. It is remarkable that these gems survive.

  1. Jean Wallace who graduated from Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech School of Law and was admitted to the Texas State Bar in 1976 assembled the Collection. Jean was the first female President of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity – Justice 1975-1976. She began her career as the first woman prosecutor hired by the Midland County Attorney’s Office. She later returned to Texas Tech as the Legal Advisor for students (1979-1990) and that experience prompted her to write “What Every 18 Year Old Needs to Know about Texas Law.” She moved to Austin where she worked for the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services before retiring in 2010. She had a deep passion for protecting the safety, wellbeing and dignity of the elderly and people with disabilities. Her love of Irish Setters was likely only matched by her passion for collecting vintage footwear of the late 18th century through the beginning of the 20th of which superb examples are on exhibit here. It is through the generous gift of her estate that these shoes, which Jean collected with the intention that they come to Texas Tech, have made it into this exhibit for all to enjoy.

The Texas Liberator:  Witness to the Holocaust
Opens August 17, 2017 through December 3, 2017

Texas Tech University, with the generous support of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission, have constructed an educational digital tool that introduces Texas high school students to the story of the Holocaust, that honors the heroism of our Texas soldiers who fought in WWII, but that also continues the important work of remembering this incredibly dark time in history.  The project includes not only the making of an app, but also a web resource page, the publication of a display quality book by Texas Tech University Press, and now also an exhibit that will feature all aspects of the work but will truly spotlight the stories of 21 of these Texas Veteran Liberators.

The museum exhibit, which will open in late summer and be on display until December will not only provide a context for Second World War, a history of the Holocaust and the Liberation, but will offer an interactive, engaged experience of walking between 21 free-standing panels, each one honoring a Texas Liberator featured in this project.  The exhibit will feature an Honor Roll – a wall with the names of over 300 Liberators the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission have recovered in their efforts to record and educate a wider public on the history of holocaust and genocide in the past and the present.

HOW WEATHER WORKS:  OUR PLACE BETWEEN THE SUN AND A STORM
Open through December 2017
Explorium Gallery

For everyone who wonders why Lubbock is so windy in the spring, how it can be shorts weather in February and parka weather in March or what causes tornadoes, hurricanes and blizzards to hit where they do, come to the Museum of Texas Tech University. Visitors will find these answers and more in a fun, interactive new exhibit that explains how weather begins and how it all works.

 

Hint: It all starts with the sun and the rotation of the Earth.

 

How Weather Works: Understanding Our Place Between the Sun and a Storm opens Sunday (June 26) and allows visitors of all ages to start at the sun, create atmospheric pressure, explore the Earth’s spin and the jet stream and learn about the many powerful aspects of storms such as tornadoes, haboobs, hail and lightning. The exhibit includes a section on how chaos, or altering one or many components of the atmosphere, can affect weather.

The exhibit showcases research led by Brian Ancell, an assistant professor in the Department of Geosciences, Atmospheric Science Group, who received an Early CAREER grant from the National Science Foundation. In addition to educator resource kits for local teachers and weather summer camps for middle school-age children, he coordinated with the museum to create this exhibit, which brings weather down to eye level and highlights how human activity can affect weather patterns.

“The driving research focuses on inadvertent weather modification, or how human activities such as irrigation, wind farms and urban heat islands can change the weather non-locally, or far away from the source,” Ancell said.

 

The exhibit is split into two sections. The first covers the basic atmospheric principles that create weather, starting from the sun and the rotation of the Earth and ending with small-scale weather features like thunderstorms. Visitors will get to stand between the Earth and the sun and take temperature readings with an infrared gun, then learn how the uneven heating of the tilted Earth creates atmospheric pressure, which then creates wind. They also will explore the Coriolis Effect, which explains how the Earth’s rotation leads to the jet stream and how weather systems work.

 

Visitors then move into a simulated immersive storm experience and learn about the formation of tornadoes, thunder, lightning, hail and dust storms, with a weather alert broadcast in the background and motion-activated thunderstorm above.

 

The second part of the exhibit discusses chaos and inadvertent weather modification, which is the focus of Ancell’s research. Visitors will use a Plinko board representing the Texas-Louisiana coastline to show how minute variations can alter the path of pucks representing hurricanes.

 

This section also looks at how wind turbines remove energy from the atmosphere and how this affects the wind patterns. It will be updated throughout the duration of the exhibit as Ancell continues his research.

 

“Chaos is the reason why small changes to the atmosphere, such as those resulting from irrigation or wind farms, can grow to be large, modifying larger scale weather features well away from the changes in the first place,” Ancell said.
LONG TERM EXHIBITIONS

THE DIAMOND M GALLERY WING-ROMANCING THE WEST
The Diamond M Galleries showcase the collection of the late Clarence Thurston and Evelyn Claire Littleton McLaughlin.

One of the Diamond M galleries focuses on a large collection of leading western artists. A second gallery focuses on the works of N.C. Wyeth, a leading illustrator of the late 19th and 20th centuries. Wyeth created the illustrations for the classic books Treasure Island, Last of the Mohicans, and dozens of others. Copies of these books are also available in the gallery. He also did illustrations for major magazines of the time.

BEYOND EXPRESSIONS IN CLAY GALLERY OF SOUTHWEST INDIAN ART
The William C. and Evelyn M. Davies Gallery of Southwest Indian Art displays an extensive collection of Southwest Native American pottery and textile. The collection is owned by the Davies and represents about 20 different Native American tribes. The rugs represent specific patterns and styles of the individual tribes. Each rug is hand woven.

The pottery of the Native American tribes includes a variety of utilitarian as well as ceremonial and trade vessels. A number of Storytellers, such as the one at right, are included in the collection.

CHANGING WORLDS:  DINOSAURS, DIVERSITY AND DRIFTING CONTINENTS
Changing Worlds looks at dinosaurs of different types, offers theories about how the earth was formed, how dinosaurs developed and eventually disappeared.

The exhibit features the work of the Museum’s own internationally known paleontologist Dr. Sankar Chatterjee – whose work seems to establish that today’s birds were likely yesterday’s dinosaurs. Most scientists believe birds evolved during the Jurassic time. But Dr. Chatterjee has discovered Protoavis – it’s about a 210 million year old – much older than other scientists think birds developed.

TALKINGTON GALLERY OF ART

The Talkington Gallery of Art combines works from the Museum’s collection with a significant donation from Margaret and J.T. Talkington, long-time Lubbock business and civic leaders. The gallery features selections from 20th and 21st Century art of the Southwestern United States. This art reflects the people and landscapes of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and portions of Colorado and Utah.

No particular type of landscape represents the Southwest, and no singular art style defines it. The art works on exhibit sample many divergent paths that artists from the Southwest have followed, from realism to romanticism, from impressionism to expressionism, from minimalism to conceptualism, and more.

Among the artists in the exhibition are Georgia O’Keeffe, Fremont Ellis, Beatrice Mandelman, Gene Kloss, Edward Curtis, Mark Klett, John Sloan, Dorothy Brett, and William Lester.

The Bayer Museum of Agriculture takes you from horse drawn implements to the tech-Savvy, computer GPS, driven equipment and farmers of today.

The Alton Brazell Exhibit Hall contains the museum’s large collection of historic farming artifacts. From restored antique tractors to harvesting equipment, highlights include and interactive Blacksmith Shop, a history of cotton ginning exhibit, and the largest display of pedal tractors in the United States.

The Central Exhibit hall features the Crops: Harvesting the Facts exhibit about the major crops grown in the United States, The Cotton Harvesting Experience, and the Bayer Crop Science Exhibit. These exhibits are interactive with a focus on modern agriculture, its science and practices.

In the early 1930’s, to spur the economy from the depression and help American farmers, President Roosevelt and his administration, started “The Ropes Project” and/or “The Colony”. This area was an area of approximately 16,000 acres northwest of Ropesville, Texas. Approximately 77 families received, by a lottery system, a farm ranging from approximately 120-200 acres. It included a framed two-bedroom house of approximately 792 square feet, a windmill, and a barn. This house is one of the last original houses from the project. Future plans include the addition of a windmill, chicken coop and grainary.

House donated by Larry and Rebecca Smith in loving memory of Mildred Knight Server.

Outdoor Exhibits:  A real working pivot irrigation system and a historic 1930s farmstead can be found among the tractors and machines showcased in our outdoor exhibits.

Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall
Billy Hassell – Trace
October 6 – November 25, 2017
http://lhuca.org/christine-devitt-exhibition-hall

LHUCA is honored to feature Billy Hassell’s Trace.

Billy Hassell is a Texas based artist with a focus on nature, conservation and the environment. His journey to becoming an artist began during his childhood in Dallas where he explored the wild areas and creeks of his neighborhood.

Billy, recently referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stylist” by The New York Times, has continued in the natural field he, and his colorful paintings bring the experience of the outdoors into indoor spaces for his collectors.

Today Billy lives in Fort Worth, Texas with his wife Emily and his two dogs in an urban neighborhood. His studio is a few blocks down the street in an old storefront where he paints daily. Together with Emily he has created a backyard oasis. They have backyard with many birds, flowers, and a pond filled with turtles, fish, and toads. He has brought his love of the outdoors to his urban home and he continues to express his love of nature in his work.

Artist Statement

Informed and inspired by observations of nature, my work explores patterns and some of the ways in which they occur. From the scale patterns of fish to the flight patterns of birds, there are patterns everywhere in nature, overlapping and intersecting in what appears at first to be total chaos. I look for repetition and order.

Although exaggerated and highly stylized, the patterns in my work, as well as the flora and fauna, are all based upon direct observation. They are not merely decorative embellishments, but have a basis in reality and, to some extent, establish location and a sense of place. This sense of place is important to me; it anchors the work.

The patterns work on various levels. I am fascinated by derivations of patterns from nature into common, everyday applications such as wallpaper and fabric design. We tend to take these more decorative applications of pattern for granted since they are ever-present elements of our environment. Their overwhelming presence, however, suggests a human need to bring nature into our living spaces. I would further suggest that it is a deeply rooted need that can be traced back to the painted and mosaic interiors of ancient Pompeii and even further back to cave paintings.

“My work draws from the art of ancient Egypt and Japanese wood block prints to the portraits of Hans Holbein and the flags and targets of Jasper Johns.”

The more stylized patterns, used as backgrounds in some of the paintings, are directly appropriated. A William Morris wallpaper design, for example, may represent the Victorian era, a time in which these designs enjoyed their highest level of popularity in America. Other patterns of Asian origin which conceivably arrived in Europe by way of the silk trade, could be considered a metaphor for commerce and more broadly, for the cross-cultural spread of aesthetics.

With regard to the depictions of birds and fish and various other creatures, I use them not only because of their patterns and colors, but because their presence (or absence) in the landscape can be a strong indicator of the relative well-being of the environment. For me, they symbolize life (and in some cases, as with the crow, death).

Because of the bright colors, bold patterns and simplified forms, my work is often compared to and linked with American and Mexican folk art. It draws, however, from a broad base of influences, from the art of ancient Egypt to Japanese wood block prints (Hiroshige’s One Hundred Famous Views of Edo) to the portraits of Hans Holbein and to the flags and targets of Jasper Johns. I am also very interested in folk history and in regional oral traditions.

Painting, for me, is a way of integrating all of these concerns, finding fascination in the commonplace, inspiration in the mundane. My hope is that it might expand, in some small measure, the ways in which the world is viewed.

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
Alice Leora Briggs – The Room
October 6 – November 25, 2017
http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

Alice Leora Briggs’ new suite of 12 woodcuts is an homage to Mark Strand, 1990 U.S. Poet Laureate and forms the core of her exhibition titled, The Room.

The University of Arizona and Yale University purchased The Room Suite earlier this year. It is now under consideration by The Library of Congress.

I was born in an oil boomtown in the West Texas Panhandle and grew up in Idaho’s Snake River Valley. I have lived most of my life in the blurred regions near borders, between nations or close to the wavering lines that separate spheres of knowledge. I am the daughter of a chemical engineer who one day woke up as a consummate violinmaker.

Collaborations with writers have been an important facet of my work since 2005. Rather than illustrate texts, I create works that respond to and resonate with the voices of writers.

Beginning in 1993, I corresponded off and on with U.S. Poet Laureate Mark Strand. I always felt I was on the verge of creating images that could stand beside his words. After three failed attempts, this notion became a standing joke that I told only to myself. I once wrote to Mark that I did not understand his poems, but could not stay away from them. He replied that this was reasonable, “that love comes first, then understanding.”

Several decades later, I turned my back for a moment and one of Strand’s poems bled into my work. THE ROOM became my geography. In 2016, I co-published with Flatbed Press a suite of 12 woodcuts that incorporate the 12 lines of THE ROOM and pay homage to the man who wrote them.

Tina Fuentes – Nubes tan negras

November 3 – December 30, 2017

Nubes tan negras, paintings and drawings by Texas Tech University Professor of Art Tina Fuentes.

Looking with fascination at the dark clouds that carry a sensational beauty with conspicuous energies which begin with whispers of the bellowing forms and tormenting weather that lies ahead.

Artist statement:
Over the years, my works have embraced and integrated illusions of space inspired by land/space that exists here in the Plains of Eastern New Mexico and West Texas.  These artistic engagements with issues of geographical/atmospheric phenomena have led to a broadening interest in the vastness of the arid spaces of the desert corridor that extends beyond the boundaries of these lands.  These explorations have taken me to the Mexican Chihuahua Desert, the Sierra Madre Occidental and Sonora Desert in the Tucson, Arizona region.  Taking my drawing tools, camera and movie projector to these locations to document vast spaces enabled me to return to my studio with ideas and images that have filtered into the visual interpretations. As I continue this discourse, I draw upon the dynamics one may encounter in these aerial landscapes. Thunderous clouds that one can feel a reverence for, a natural force that can mesmerize and bring forth trepidations all at the same time.  Nature, a beautiful energy, can also be a diabolical force.

Martin McDonald Gallery
Resonate & Render
November 3 – November 25, 2017

An exhibition by artists, each of whom work in both performance and visual arts

Valerie Hill — choreography/dance and visual art
Ra Inta & Beth Koehn— music and visual art
Kristy Kristinek — choreography/dance and visual art
Brandi Price — music and visual art
Bonnie Wilkinson — music and visual art
Andy Wilkinson — music and visual art

Ra Inta
Ra was born in the rain-forest on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand (his full name is Ra Ata O Te Ngahere Douglas Inta). He wanted to be a fire engine driver until his Mom put him on a space rocket ride, after which he altered course to become a scientist. He got his PhD in Physics, making acoustic guitars. Ra played in a band with Iggy Pop, for an ad which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes advertising awards. His day job is looking for the vibrations in space-time known as gravitational waves, and is part of the team that first saw the screams given off by black holes colliding into each other.

Beth Koehn
Beth is a Jill-of-all-trades, having worked as an entomologist, restaurant manager, cosmetician, barista, gift wrapper and a medical researcher, having investigated everything from heavy metal toxicology to how Australian wallabies reproduce. However, her first love is singing, being a trained soprano and has sung internationally. She runs a small jewelry business and is currently a senior forensic technician for the county of Lubbock. She is probably one of the few Americans to admit to liking the famous black Australian foodstuff, Vegemite.

Kristy Krisinek
Through the act of documentation, the marks of the body in space become recorded on the surface of the canvas creating a tension between the progression and the outcome. The notion of restraint becomes visible through the quick gestural quality of the marks and textures left behind by the execution of performance in the studio. The goal is to provide the audience with a glimpse in to the artist’s practice, developing an interactive representation of the body and artistic process studying the duality of dance and painting.

Valerie Komkov Hill
I love working in a variety of mediums and experimenting with various art processes and techniques. A painting I am working on will often fuel an idea for a quilt. A piece of fabric will inspire me to try a printing or textural process. A mixed media project will just come together from the leftovers of an abandoned artwork. I am always inspired by line and color, by the juxtaposition of simplicity with complexity, and by the unexpected combinations of seemingly dissimilar materials. I work spontaneously and intuitively in a state of ‘controlled chaos’, often surprising myself and hoping to inspire others in the delight of creativity.

Brandi Price
Progression. Intention. Destination. Movement. Curiosity. Sensitivity. Clarity. Listening. Answering.
As an artist, I am perpetually seeking ways to relate to the world, to unfold and reform perception ~ consciously and unconsciously.
The path to this moment:
In the spring of 2017, post-election, I began dropping more fully into awareness around the deep un-weaving we are all experiencing as a nation. It was here that I began to process the breadth of what was actually going on. The status-quo was being called to question. How was I being called to answer? How was I being asked to assist in dismantling centuries-old systems of oppression?
Around this time, I began a practice where I would scribble these words onto a sticky note ~ using my non-dominant (left) hand:
There is no balance point, only the pursuit of it.
My intention with the writing practice was to emphasize an area of myself where I lacked familiarity. To experience integration with the left side of my body, to touch base with my feminine nature, to connect with lunar elements, to breath more space into the parts of myself I had ignored or abandoned. I also found that this gentle writing practice was a way to stay centered and connected to a simple mantra.
Post-election, I disconnected in many ways from the draining polarization of mainstream media and divisive conversations and I dropped more deeply into relationship with the natural world. I began to mirror the receptivity I found in nature. The softness. The ever-changing constancy. I began honoring the earth, as the Mother she is and naturally, I began to honor and nurture the divine feminine in myself as well.
Looking through images from this past summer…a story came emerged – the spirit of these photographs began to reveal itself to me. I began to see a reflection of the emotional experiences that I was having in these images and what I saw was beauty – beauty that I honestly couldn’t see before. In the photos, I have seen a reflection of my own alchemical transformation over the past few months.
I see these 3 images together, weaving the narrative of Maiden, Mother, Crone. May we all be energized by the tryptic, the triple Goddess. The sticky notes bring in the human element – As we witness the journey, we start in curiosity – the mid-point brings a point of reflection and finally we meet progression—into full embodiment and engagement with language, with symbols, with meaning.

Kristy Kristinek
Through the act of documentation, the marks of the body in space become recorded on the surface of the canvas creating a tension between the progression and the outcome. The notion of restraint becomes visible through the quick gestural quality of the marks and textures left behind by the execution of performance in the studio. The goal is to provide the audience with a glimpse in to the artist’s practice, developing an interactive representation of the body and artistic process studying the duality of dance and painting.

Andy Wilkinson
For every story there is an infinite number of narrations; for every idea there is an infinite number of expressions.  If we let them, those narrations and expressions come in many forms: in words, in music, in movement, in lines and colors and shapes.  We’re not limited to only one.  Both the songs and the paintings for this exhibition are field notes, pieces done on the road, which is where I usually am.

HOLIDAY HOURS:  –   The Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday, Thursday, November 23rd through Saturday, November 25th.

Created in 1989, The Vietnam Center and Archive is home to the largest collection of Vietnam related material outside the U.S. National Archives.  The Vietnam Center and Archive collects and preserves the documentary record of the Vietnam War, and supports and encourages research and education regarding all aspects of the American Vietnam Experience.

About the Vietnam Center

In May 1989, a group of Vietnam veterans from West Texas gathered at Texas Tech University to discuss what they might do, in a positive way, about their experiences in Vietnam. That group’s immediate decision was to form a Vietnam Archive and begin collecting and preserving materials relating to the American Vietnam experience.

In November 1989, the Board of Regents of Texas Tech University established the Vietnam Center, with the dual missions of funding and guiding the development of the Vietnam Archive and encouraging continuing study of all aspects of the American Vietnam experience.

The group of veterans who first met in May 1989 were invited to form a board to provide guidance and support for the Vietnam Center. Since then, the Vietnam Center Advisory Board has met regularly to provide advice as the Vietnam Center and Archive at Texas Tech has evolved. Many of the veterans who attended the first meeting in May 1989 continue to advise the Vietnam Center today. In this way, the Vietnam Center remains very closely connected to America’s Vietnam Veteran community.

The mission of the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University is to support and encourage research and education regarding all aspects of the American Vietnam experience; promoting a greater understanding of this experience and the peoples and cultures of Southeast Asia. Its functions are threefold: support for the Vietnam Archive and the collection and preservation of pertinent historical source material; promotion of education through exhibits, classroom instruction, educational programs, and publications; and encouragement of related scholarship through organizing and hosting conferences and symposia, academic, educational, and cultural exchanges, and the publishing of scholarly research.

Ogden Williams Collection

The Vietnam Center seeks to provide a forum for all points of view and for all topics relating to Indochina, particularly – but not limited to – the American military involvement there. At our conferences and symposia, we encourage the presentation of papers by veterans and others who directly participated in and supported wartime events as well as by individuals who opposed the war. We encourage participation by our former allies in South Vietnam but also offer the same participation to those who supported the government in Hanoi.

Similarly, we place equal importance upon preserving records relating to all aspects of the Vietnam War. It is as important to us to preserve the records of US veterans, military and civilian, who served in Southeast Asia as well as civilians active on the homefront to include the antiwar movement. We want to preserve a complete history of the war. To do otherwise would be a disservice to history.

In addition to the Vietnam Archive and its component projects, the Vietnam Center administers a number of special projects and events, including scholarships, outreach programs, and Conferences and Symposiums, as well as numerous publications, including the Friends of the Vietnam Center newsletter and the Modern Southeast Asia series in association with the Texas Tech University Press.

The Vietnam Center is also raising money for a new state-of-the-art facility that will house The Vietnam Center, Archive, and Museum. If you are interested in supporting this endeavor, please visit The Vietnam Center Building Site. If you are interested in supporting the Vietnam Center and Archive in other ways, you can contribute to our scholarships or you can donate artifacts and materials to The Vietnam Archive.

About the Archive

The Vietnam Archive mission is to collect and preserve the documentary record of the Vietnam War. The first collection received by the Archive – a package of letters from a Navy hospital corpsman to his family while serving in Vietnam – symbolizes our commitment to preserve the record of individuals and provide greater understanding of their experiences. While the Vietnam Archive continues this commitment as its primary objective, it has expanded its collection policy to include records of veterans’ organizations and scholars of the period as well as other individuals and organizations who share experiences from the war in Vietnam.

Douglas Pike Collection: Other Manuscripts – American Friends of Vietnam

The Vietnam Archive has collected millions of pages of material and tens of thousands of photographs, slides, maps, periodicals, audio, moving images, and books related to the Vietnam War, Indochina, and the impact of the war on the United States and Southeast Asia.

The preservation of historical records provides the principal means for future generations to fully understand the past. Monuments call to mind significant events, but only records provide the basis for historical narratives, insight and understanding. In this way, the Vietnam Archive stands as a living memorial to all those who played some part in the nation’s “Vietnam experience.” Using the Archive, all those who are interested can study and better understand the people, places and events of this critical time in history.

DONATING TO THE ARCHIVE

The Archive accepts donations as small as a single item or as large as hundreds of boxes. Donations do not have to be organized and do not have to pertain to a famous person, event or organization. We accept papers, books, films, audio, moving images, and artifacts. If you are interested in donating to the Vietnam Archive, look for more information in our Information for Donors section.

RESEARCHING

There are two ways to conduct research using Vietnam Archive materials: in person and online, using the information provided in the Information for Researchers section and, more importantly, through the Virtual Vietnam Archive.

CONTACT INFO AND HELP

VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS

Over the past few years, the Vietnam Archive has made a concerted effort to record the histories of veteran’s organizations and their members. The Veterans’ Association section of this website provides more information about our efforts in this area.

VIETNAMESE AMERICAN HERITAGE PROJECT

Created in 2008, the Vietnamese American Heritage Project (VAHP) supports the Vietnam Archive’s mission to document the war from all perspectives by providing documentation of the post-war social and political history of Vietnamese Americans who immigrated to the United States during and after the Vietnam conflict. A component of the archive, the VAHP is comprised of a full time Vietnamese American Heritage Archivist and one part time student assistant who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public materials that document the experiences and contributions of Vietnamese Americans in American society. The VAHP aims to enhance the study of the Vietnamese immigration and resettlement experience by providing reference services to researchers and increasing Vietnamese American participation in the archive’s Oral History Project, conducting outreach activities, and developing cooperative relationships with other institutions dedicated to preserving Vietnamese American’s rich heritage.

TEACHERS’ RESOURCES WEB

The goal of the Teachers Resource Web is to aid educators and students who teach and take classes on the Vietnam War. The site is intended to assist teachers and students at all levels – from primary school to college. Site materials are designed to accommodate a range of teaching and learning situations from a single 50-minute lecture that is part of a general US history class to a semester or quarter-long dedicated course focusing exclusively on the Vietnam War.

VIETNAM GRAFFITI PROJECT

Richard H. MacKinnon Collection [VA066112]

The Vietnam Graffiti Project is dedicated to preserving and providing access to a remarkable array of historical material from various ships that supported United States military forces in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. The materials you will find here include bunk canvases, ships logs, nautical charts, and other artifacts and documents. The collection provides insight into life onboard these ships, especially troop transports.

CDEC DIGITIZATION PROJECT

The Combined Document Exploitation Center (CDEC) Microfilm Collection consists of 954 reels of documents captured from North Vietnamese and Vietcong forces during the Vietnam War. Materials from this collection are being added to the Virtual Vietnam Archive daily, and plans are underway to make the entire collection available online, including original metadata collected when the materials were filmed.

ORAL HISTORIES AND DIGITAL MATERIALS

In addition to its mission of collecting materials concerning Vietnam, the Vietnam War, and Southeast Asia, the Vietnam Archive currently administers two projects, the Oral History Project and the Virtual Vietnam Archive.

The Oral History Project

In 1999 the Vietnam Center and Archive initiated the Oral History Project (OHP). The history of the wars in Southeast Asia is not complete without the inclusion of the voices of those who were in some way involved. To that end, the mission of the OHP is to create and preserve a more complete record of the wars in Southeast Asia by preserving, through recorded interviews, the recollections and experiences of all who were involved in those wars. There is no political agenda in the development of the Archive or the Oral History Project. Anyone can participate, whether an American veteran, a former ally or enemy of the U.S., an anti-war protester, a government employee, a family member of a veteran, etc. The more breadth and depth the OHP has in its participants, the better and more authentic the collection and preservation of the history of the wars will be.

The Virtual Vietnam Archive

Earl R. Rhine Collection [VAN018343]

The Virtual Vietnam Archive enables scholars, students and all others interested in this remarkable period in our world history to conduct research directly from universities, schools, libraries, and homes. Of equal importance, it will enable Vietnam veterans – those who actually served – to access records that might be of importance to them in their continuing efforts to understand their own experiences. It will facilitate the research and writing of participants’ memoirs, and will give high school and college students an important and authoritative source of information as they seek to understand the complexities of the Vietnam War.

When the Virtual Vietnam Archive project is complete, it will include a record for every item in the Vietnam Archive. All non-copyrighted items are available online, free of charge. The Virtual Archive currently includes finding aids for all Vietnam Archive collections, and over 4 million pages of materials online, including documents, photographs, slides, negatives, audio and moving image recordings, artifacts, and oral histories. New items are being added daily.

The Virtual Vietnam Archive employees a number of full-time employees, and numerous part-time student workers, both graduate students and undergrads. Materials are digitized using a variety of equipment, including HP flatbed scanners, Fujitsu high-speed and flatbed scanners, an EPSON large bed scanner, Nikon slide scanner, HP large format scanner/plotter, Otari reel-to-reel and cassette digitization system, an Elmo 16mm film digitizer, and an 8mm film digitizer. Digitized materials are stored on three Dell servers, with backup copies stored onsite in a cold storage vault. The Virtual Vietnam Archive utilizes a relational database system (Cuadra Star) produced by Cuadra Associates.

Michael Ray Goode Collection

Institute of Museum and Library Services Primary funding for the Virtual Vietnam Archive has been provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information about the people and organizations who have made the Virtual Vietnam Archive possible.

Although the transverse flute and the recorder coexisted in music history, they were rarely cast together by major composers in the same composition. Visiting flute professor Susanna Self and nationally recognized recorder artist Dr. Christopher Koch are proud to present Telemann’s Concerto for Flute and Recorder and Quantz’s Trio Sonata, which are two of the only canonically recognized works for these instruments in combination. These woodwind features will be complemented by a performance of one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s time honored Suites for Solo Cello from the recently published edition of the six Suites by TTU cello professor Jeffrey Lastrapes. From unaccompanied cello to dancing wind virtuosity to inspired continuo playing from collaborative keyboardist Becca Zeisler, this program aspires to provide a fresh listening experience for these older works.

Casting Crowns
With 8.2 million albums sold to date—including one RIAA Double Platinum Album, three Plati-num and six Gold records, and two Platinum and four Gold DVDs—Casting Crowns remains the top-selling act in Christian music since 2007. The award-winning group—consisting of Mark Hall (lead singer/songwriter), Melodee DeVevo (violin, cello, vocals), Brian Scoggin (drums), Megan Garrett (piano, keyboards, vocals), Juan DeVevo (guitar, vocals), Chris Huffman (bass guitar, vocals) and Josh Mix (lead guitar, vocals)—got its start as a youth group worship band originally based in Florida. Today, each of the seven members remain active in student ministry at their respective churches in Atlanta, where Hall is serving in his 23rd year in youth ministry as stu-dent pastor at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church.

Building on a strong foundation forged by their self-titled major label debut in 2003 that went Double Platinum, Casting Crowns has earned some of the industry’s most prestigious acco-lades, including six GRAMMY nominations, winning a GRAMMY for the band’s 2005 effort, Life-song. In addition, over the past decade, Casting Crowns has garnered 17 GMA Dove Awards, three American Music Awards and two Billboard Music Awards, among others. Most recently, the band was named Artist of the Year exclusively by fans at the 2014 K-LOVE Fan Awards.

Their chart-topping songs—including “Who Am I,” “Voice of Truth,” “Praise You In This Storm,” “Until The Whole World Hears,” “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me),” “Courageous” and “Jesus, Friend of Sinners”—have earned them nine No. 1 hits at radio and four RIAA Gold certified digi-tal singles. Furthermore, the band has been featured by a variety of high-profile media outlets such as Billboard, Associated Press, Reuters, Rolling Stone, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Cha-risma, HomeLife and CCM Magazine, among others. In 2008, the band performed on TNT’s an-nual “Christmas In Washington” concert special alongside Kristin Chenoweth, Julianne Hough, Darius Rucker and Straight No Chaser. In addition, Casting Crowns has appeared on “Good Morning America,” NBC’s “Today,” CNN, MSNBC, “Fox News,” “Fox & Friends,” “Huckabee” and more. They also had their debut performance at Carnegie Hall in January 2015.

Always looking for opportunities to use their platform for greater good, over the course of their career, Casting Crowns has seen more than 80,000 children sponsored through their advocacy efforts at concerts. Moreover, the band was a part of a team of first-responders who helped dis-tribute supplies to survivors following the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.

Their tours have taken them all over the world, helping to spread the Gospel message globally. The band was the only U.S. musical act hand-picked to perform at a nationally-televised arts festival in North Korea in 2007 and was invited back again in 2009. Meanwhile, in the States, the band continues to sell-out arenas across the country. In fact, “The Altar and the Door Tour” set attendance records in the U.S. with 450,000 tickets sold in 83 markets and was ranked as the top-grossing Christian tour of the 2007/2008 season according to Pollstar.

The band recently wrapped its headlining “Thrive Tour,” which visited 76 cities throughout 2014 in support of their seventh studio offering, Thrive (Reunion Records/Beach Street Records).

Zach Williams
Husband, father, singer, songwriter, worship leader, campus director at his home church in Arkansas, and now, most recently added to Zach Williams’ list of titles is GRAMMY nominated recording artist. He released his powerful debut single, “Chain Breaker,” this summer to radio stations across the U.S. which quickly hit No. 1 and released a full-length album titled CHAIN BREAKER in December.

Join us for coffee and donuts as we explore and discuss Odilon Redon  April 20, 1840 – July 6, 1916.

In the spirit of the fall season, we turn our attention to the artist Odilon Redon and his fantastic world of art. From the time period of Post-Impressionism, Redon created works saturated in beautiful colors and set in far-off worlds. He used mythological figures to create compositions that echoed dreams and visions rather than depicting the world around him. Redon’s drawings and prints reflect macabre visions, of spiders with human faces and hot-air balloons that are actually giant eyeballs. Join the discussion at Saturdays at LHUCA as we experience the art of the fantastic and strange.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

Nobody I know—and I mean nobody—has covered more ground and made more friends and sung more songs than the fellow you’re about to meet right now.  He’s got a song and a friend for every mile behind him.  Say hello to my good buddy, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.
– Johnny Cash, The Johnny Cash Television Show, 1969.

One of the last true links to the great folk traditions of this country, with over 40 albums under his belt, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is considered one of the country’s legendary foundations of folk music.

Long before every kid in America wanted to play guitar — before Elvis, Dylan, the Beatles or Led Zeppelin — Ramblin’ Jack had picked it up and was passing it along. From Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, Beck to Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder to Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead to The Rolling Stones, they all pay homage to Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.

In the tradition of roving troubadours Jack has carried the seeds and pollens of story and song for decades from one place to another, from one generation to the next. They are timeless songs that outlast whatever current musical fashion strikes today’s fancy.

His tone of voice is sharp, focused and piercing.   All that and he plays the guitar effortlessly in a fluid flat-picking perfected style.  He was a brilliant entertainer….  Most folk musicians waited for you to come to them.  Jack went out and grabbed you…..  Jack was King of the Folksingers.     Bob Dylan, Chronicles: Volume One

There are no degrees of separation between Jack and the real thing. He is the guy who ran away from his Brooklyn home at fourteen to join the rodeo and learned his guitar from a cowboy.  In 1950, he met Woody Guthrie, moved in with the Guthrie family and traveled with Woody to California and Florida, from the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters. Jack became so enthralled with the life and composer of This Land Is Your LandThe Dust Bowl Ballads, and a wealth of children’s songs that he completely absorbed the inflections and mannerisms, leading Guthrie to remark, “Jack sounds more like me than I do.”

In 1954, along with folk singing pals Frank Robinson and Guy Carawan, Jack journeyed south through Appalachia, Nashville and to New Orleans to hear authentic American country music.  He later made this the basis for his talking song, 912 Greens.

In 1955 Jack married and traveled to Europe, bringing his genuine American folk, cowboy and blues repertoire and his guitar virtuosity, inspiring a new generation of budding British rockers, from Mick Jagger to Eric Clapton.

When he returned to America in 1961, he met another young folksinger, Bob Dylan at Woody Guthrie’s bedside, and mentored Bob. Jack has continued as an inspiration for every roots-inspired performer since.

Along the way he learned the blues first-hand from Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, the Reverend Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, Brownie Mcghee and Sonny Terry, Jesse Fuller and Champion Jack Dupree.

He has recorded forty albums; wrote one of the first trucking songs, Cup of Coffee, recorded by Johnny Cash; championed the works of new singer-songwriters, from Bob Dylan and Kris Kristofferson to Tim Hardin; became a founding member of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue; and continued the life of the traveling troubadour influencing Jerry Jeff Walker, Guy Clark, Tom Russell The Grateful Dead and countless others.

In 1995, Ramblin’ Jack received his first of four Grammy nominations and the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album, for South Coast (Red House Records).
In 1998, President Bill Clinton awarded Jack the National Medal of the Arts, proclaiming, “In giving new life to our most valuable musical traditions, Ramblin’ Jack has himself become an American treasure.”

In 2000, Jack’s daughter, filmmaker, Aiyana Elliott produced and directed The Ballad of Ramblin’ Jack, her take on Jack’s life and their fragile relationship, winning a Special Jury Prize from the Sundance Film Festival.

Through it all—though agents, managers, wives and recording companies have tried—Jack resisted being molded into a commercial commodity.  He played his shows without a written set list or including any songs that did not ring with his gut feeling of what mattered to him.

Ramblin’ Jack’s life of travels, performances and recordings is a testament to the America of lore, a giant land of struggle, hard luck and sometimes even of good fortune.  Ramblin’ Jack takes us to places that spur us on to the romance and passion of life in the tunes and voices of real people.

At 86, Ramblin’ Jack is still on the road, still seeking those people, places, songs and stories that are hand-crafted, wreaking of wood and canvas, cowhide and forged metal.  You’ll find him in the sleek lines of a long haul semi-truck, in the rigging of an old sailing ship, in the smell of a fine leather saddle.

Presenting an all British program.  As a Professor at the Royal College of Music, Madeleine Mitchell is in an apt position to support and herald music written by British composers. Her recent engagements have taken her on tour to India and the Middle East, to China to judge the Western International Strings Competition, and now to Lubbock to present a program spanning a century’s worth of British music. She will collaborate with TTU faculty violinist John Gilbert to present “Atlantic Drift,” a recently composed work for two violins written by Judith Weir, Master of the Queen’s Music. The rest of the exclusively British program will feature compositions by Rebecca Clarke, Sir Edward Elgar, Frank Bridge, John Ireland, and Herbert Howells. In addition to her performance, Professor Mitchell will also be presenting a violin masterclass and a presentation on her work with the Technology Enhanced Learning of Musical Instruments (TELMI) project.

Holiday Happening is one of the most exciting events in the Lubbock community, ushering in the Christmas season each fall. Not only is it the first visit of Santa Claus, Holiday Happening offers entertainment and shopping for the whole family.

The glitz and glamour of this highlight event is made possible by the dedicated efforts of scores of Junior League volunteers on a mission that is more far-reaching than a fun start to the holidays. This small band of women put in thousands of volunteer hours each year to hold the Junior League’s largest fundraising event.

And those funds? They support the League’s work in the community: providing the resources to make the Food2Kids program possible, to support YWCA’s Fun ‘N’ Sun Center, to help teach children about good nutrition, and the list goes on.
Since the first Holiday Happening event was held in 1979, the Junior League of Lubbock has returned more than $5 million to the community.

Public Art Opportunity with the Texas Tech University System

Project Summary: The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create a site-specific exterior installation to be placed in front of the new Medical Science Building II, located at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center campus in El Paso, TX. Construction of the facility will be completed by March 2019.

Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) is the only health sciences center along the U.S.-Mexico border that provides the opportunities and environment for direct intellectual and interpersonal exchanges among nursing, medical, and graduate research students on one campus.

This piece should be outdoors and available to the community; ideal submissions should be well integrated with the landscaping in the area and well-lit at night. The public art should help draw attention to the building’s entrance, but also help create a cohesive, campus-like feel in front of the building.

Among relevant concepts to consider are the medical field and how to integrate medicine into the culture and vibrancy of El Paso. It should create a natural gathering place for students and the community. Because this is an innovative medical facility, we expect the artist to also be innovative. Pieces that are considered too abstract should be avoided. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided. Artists should attempt to create a design that speaks to the diversity that a university such as the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center campus in El Paso brings to the community.

In order to be considered, submissions must comply with the requirements outlined in the RFQ. Objects that are mass-produced or of standard manufacture are not eligible for consideration.

Location: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, El Paso, TX

Budget: $790,000

Application Deadline: November 16, 2017 at 3 p.m. (central)

This Thanksgiving, fill your hearts with the miracle of family and friendship at Moonlight Broadway’s production of Meredith Wilson’s Miracle on 34th Street!

Based on the beloved films and with a musical score by Meredith Wilson, Miracle on 34th Street tells the tale of a single-mother, Doris, and her struggle to balance work, her young daughter, the loving guy across the hall who wants to be more than friends, and many years worth of dashed dreams and a hurting heart. Then one year at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a man named Kris Kringle appears just as a replacement driver is being sought for the Parade’s Santa Sleigh. By expressing kindness, generosity, forgiveness, compassion, and love, Kris prompts people to remember the reason for the season and their lives begin to change.

In the present day, an acting troupe comes together to create a performance about the little-known decimation of the Herero people in turn-of-the-century colonial Africa.  As they stumble through their increasingly charged rehearsals, the performers begin to unravel the thorny know of race and power that reaches from Sudwestafrika to modern America.  At turns darkly comedic, wildly theatrical, and deeply moving, We are Proud to Present…explores how the echoes of a forgotten history reverberate with us today.
