Cowboy Astronomer (all ages)
37 minutes

Explore the stars from a cowboy’s point of view! This full-dome planetarium show is a skillfully woven tapestry of star tales and Native American legends, combined with constellation identification, star-hopping, and astronomy tidbits — all told from the unique viewpoint of a cowboy astronomer who has traveled the world plying his trade and learning the sky along the way. Narrated by cowboy humorist and poet Baxter Black.

Extreme Planets (grade 6 & up)
33 minutes

Just over a decade ago there were no known planets orbiting sunlike stars outside our own solar system. Since 1995, however, fast-paced developments in detection techniques have revealed hundreds of extrasolar planets–with the pace of discovery increasing all the time. Though it will be years before we have direct images of the surfaces of these worlds, this show gives us an idea of what they might look like – up close and personal! In this original production we’ll explore the idea of what “Earth-like” even means, and take an immersive journey to several worlds that may stretch the imagination, but aren’t science fiction anymore.

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.

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

Contact information for all of the elements of the Vietnam Center and Archive is available. If you are having trouble finding what you are looking for on this website, try our help page or site map.

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.

Project Barbatype:  Scott Hilton & Bryan Wing
September 7 – October 27, 2018
http://lhuca.org/martin-mcdonald-gallery

Project Barbatype, tintype photography of men (and women!) who compete in the international circuit of Beard and Mustache competitions

Project Barbatype began with a conversation in the darkroom of Collin College in Plano, TX in the spring of 2014. Scott was an instructor who had been working with tintypes for a few years, with a growing interest in portraiture. Bryan was a photo lab tech, and former beard competitor, with an ambition to make a book. An idea was spontaneously generated- to join forces, and make it happen.

Project Barbatype is a collaborative effort of a dedicated group of individuals who have each committed their time, skills, money, and energy to get Project Barbatype started and keep it running.

Scott Hilton started photographing in high school. He has a BA in Art with a concentration in Photography from the University of Nevada, Reno, and an MFA in Creative Photography from California State University, Fullerton. He currently teaches photography as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington. Scott began working with hand-made photo processes while in grad school, and started making tintypes in 2009. He reluctantly admits it was nearly three years later until he actually knew what he was doing.

Bryan Wing retired from competitive bearding in 2011, after receiving numerous “Honorable Mention” awards for his facial hair achievements. He earned an AA in Photography from Collin College in Plano, TX, and is currently pursuing a BA in Photography from Texas Woman’s University.

Scott and Bryan met when Scott was teaching a darkroom photography class at Collin College in Plano, TX, and Bryan was the evening lab technician.  Project Barbatype was born in a conversation when Scott mentioned his efforts at perfecting tintype portrait techniques, and Bryan mentioned his thought of doing a photo project on Beard and Moustache Competitors.  A partnership was formed, and continues to roll on.

Tarrah Krajnak:  SISMOS79
September 7 – October 27, 2019

SISMOS79, by Tarrah Krajnak, mixed-media examining the particular sites of intersection between the artist’s life and the turbulent period in Lima, Peru circa 1979

Tarrah Krajnak was born in Lima, Peru in 1979. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her MFA from the University of Notre Dame in 2004. She has exhibited nationally and internationally at: Art13 London, Art Basel Miami, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Center for Photography Woodstock, San Francisco Camerawork, Newspace Center for Photography, Columbus Museum of Art, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, and metropcs gallery L.A among others. In 2013 Ampersand Gallery & Fine Books published Krajnak’s first book “South Sound” and it was named one of the best photobooks of the year by Time Magazine and Indie Library. Krajnak received grants from the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Vermont Council for the Arts, The Vermont Community Foundation, and the Arizona Commission on the Arts. Her work has appeared in both print and online magazines including L.A Review of Books, Nueva Luz, Camerawork, F-Stop Magazine, and Killing the Buddha. Krajnak has a forthcoming solo exhibition in December of 2017 at the Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh, PA. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. She taught previously at Cornell University and the University of Vermont.

The late cultural theorist Stuart Hall has written that identities emerge as “unfinished conversations,” formed “at the unstable point where personal lives meet the narrative of history.” SISMOS79 (derived from the Spanish word for “earthquake”) is a long-term project that examines the particular sites of intersection between my own life and the turbulent period in the history of Lima, Peru circa 1979. 1979 was a time of seismic changes in Peru’s capital, a transitional period between the military dictatorship of the 70s and the onset of the Shining Path’s guerilla war in 1980. The city’s population swelled and was transformed by a massive influx of rural migrants from the highlands and eastern jungles; and my birth mother was among them, one of many young women uprooted during that tectonic demographic shift. That’s almost all I know about her. Like her peers, she was vulnerable in a city that was a violent, dangerous place. 1979 was a year that created orphans. In SISMOS79 I set out not to recover some stable, “authentic” identity hidden by the circumstances of my birth and adoption, but rather to pull together archival materials, found photographs, untold narratives, and images in an effort to patch together, reclaim, and invent something like a psychic history of that year, and locate myself within it.

Exhibits

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.

FOYER GALLERY
https://www.mylubbock.us/departmental-websites/departments/buddy-holly-ccenter/foyer-gallery

The Buddy Holly Center partnered with The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation headquartered in London, England, and opened a new permanent exhibition in the Center’s Foyer Gallery that began on Friday, February 3, 2017.

The exhibition will feature an acoustic Akin guitar signed by legendary performer Sir Paul McCartney, and numerous framed certificates signed by the many Foundation musical ambassadors who recognize Buddy Holly’s inspirational musical influence in the early years of Rock and Roll.  The mission of The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation is to honor Buddy’s legacy as well as to make Buddy and Maria Elena Holly’s dream of extending musical education, including songwriting, production, arranging, orchestration, and performance, to new generations regardless of income or ethnicity or learning levels. We will empower a new generation to follow in Buddy’s footsteps.

The Foundation will periodically lend additional items for the exhibition from its extensive collection of artifacts.  The Center will use this opportunity to display other items from its collection, namely, Buddy’s bedroom furniture, acquired by the Center through the auspices of Civic Lubbock, Inc.  Buddy’s dining room table is now on display as well.

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.

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.

Red That Colored the World
September 17, 2018 – January 17, 2019
Galleries 2 and 3

The Red That Colored the World is a traveling exhibition from the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  It explores the history and widespread use in art of cochineal, an insect-based dye source for the color red whose origins and use date to the pre-Columbian Americas.

The color red, with its brilliant hue, has inspired artists’ imaginations and seduced viewers for millennia. And we have a small insect to thank for this magical color.

The exhibition, The Red That Colored the World, combines new research and original scholarship to explore the history and widespread use in art of cochineal, an insect-based dye source for the color red whose origins and use date to the pre-Columbian Americas.

The exhibition translates the cochineal story into three dimensions, following the precious bug juice and its use in art from Mexico to Europe to the U.S. and beyond. The exhibition highlights more than 60 objects including textiles, sculpture, paintings, decorative arts and, clothing from the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, private lenders, and museums around the country. The exhibition explores the history of cochineal and the seductive visual nature of red. The objects reflect the unique international uses of color, revealing its role in the creative process, and the motivations of artists in their choice of materials.

Artists and dyers for centuries strived to find the color source to rival the best reds of nature and to express the spirit, symbolism, and sustenance of life. Their quest ended in the Aztec marketplaces of 16th-century Mexico, where Spanish explorers encountered the American cochineal bug. The bug created an unparalleled range of reds with substantial economic value. Its ensuing global spread launched an epic story of empire and desire that pushed art, culture, and trade to the edge of the unknown.

Pre-Columbian weavers used cochineal. So did El Greco, Tintoretto, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. Hispano saint makers and Navajo weavers of the 18th- and 19th-century American Southwest followed suit, as did 20th century-Spanish design icon Mariano Fortuny. Synthetic dyes eclipsed natural sources in the late 19th century, but cochineal’s cachet never completely waned. Through such international objects, the exhibition follows the story to today, where cochineal and the color red remain hot commodities in cosmetics and commercial products, contemporary art, fashion and design, and other expressions of popular culture.

Inspired by the exhibition, the Caprock Art Quilters challenged themselves to create quilts around the color red. The results are on view in the Red, Hot & Quilted exhibition.

The Red That Colored the World, organized by the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, NM and circulating through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions, has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Ladies in Red
September 11, 2018 – January 17, 2019
Main Gallery

Ladies in Red is a composition exhibition to Red That Colored the World.  It draws from the Clothing and Textiles Division collection and other garments on loan from other sources.

The color red evokes strong emotions. From the red power suits worn by First Lady Nancy Reagan to designer gowns worn by first ladies and celebrities, red clothing signifies confidence and the desire to stand out from the crowd.

In Ladies in Red, the Museum of Texas Tech University draws on its superb clothing and textiles collection to create an exhibit featuring red clothing from former first lady Laura Bush and local fashion leaders Margaret Talkington, Louise Underwood, and Carol Krueger Layne.

Ladies in Red, is a complementary exhibit to the exhibition The Red That Colored the World, that explores the history and widespread use in art and textiles of cochineal, an insect-based dye source for the color red whose origins and use date to the pre-Columbian America.

Featured in Ladies in Red is the red dress worn by Laura Bush for a Dec. 7, 2003 portrait with President George W. Bush in front of the White House Christmas Tree. Photo above courtesy of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, White House photo by Eric Draper.

Texas Tech’s use of the bright crimson red as its school color is also represented inLadies in Red in the red suit Marsha Sharp, former basketball head coach, wore when the Lady Raider’s won the NCAA national basketball championship, shown at right, and in past Texas Tech cheerleader uniforms.

Pre-Modern Bibles:  From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Complutensian Polyglot Bible
August 18, 2018 – March 3, 2019
Gallery 6

The Museum of Texas Tech University will host the Pre-Modern Bibles: From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Complutensian Polyglot Bible, the largest collection of original and facsimile biblical manuscripts ever assembled in West Texas.

 

The exhibition illustrates the evolution of the physical Bible, the development of scholarly methods of biblical analysis, and the refinement of multiple ways to convey biblical learning, often to people of limited literacy. The highlight of the exhibition is the creation, in Spain at the end of the Middle Ages, of the Complutensian Polyglot Bible with its elaborate multilingual printing press fonts.

 

And just a fun side note:

 

The Complutensian Polyglot Bible and Texas Tech University’s architecture can both be traced back to the same source, a university in north-central Spain, the Universidad Complutense at Alcalá de Henares which relocated to Madrid during the 19th century.  In 1923, architect William Ward Watkin, seeking a suitable architectural style for a new university on the High Plains of Texas, looked to the High Plains of Spain, the region of the Extremadura, and modeled Texas Tech’s first building, the Administration Building, on the university at Alcalá.

The Art and Science of Restoration Ecology
Friday, June 8 – Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Leonardo’s Kitchen in the Museum of Texas Tech University

The Art and Science of Restoration Ecology examines the way a graduate art and an ecology course combined to explore the artistic and scientific aspects of restoring the environment at Lubbock’s Mae Simmons Park. The exhibition features the artistic interpretations and reactions to the site as well as the gathering and interpretation of scientific data.

Red or Green:  The Chile Pepper in New Mexico
May 13, 2018 – September 23, 2018

How do you like your chiles? Red or green? Hot or mild? Whatever your taste, the chile is a staple of “Hot Cuisine” in the Southwest.

Chile is the subject of a fun and educational traveling exhibit from the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Museum in Las Cruces. Red or Green? The Origins and Cultural Significance of the Chile Pepper opens at the Museum of Texas Tech University May 13.

The exhibit focuses on New Mexico chile varieties, their history and evolution, and how they came to have such a central place in the state’s culture. A major theme of the exhibit is how chile became such an integral part of New Mexico without being native to the state. It’s a part of three state symbols, there are festivals all over the state, and now we have the state’s Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail.

The New Mexico State Legislature named the chile as a state vegetable in 1965 and designated Red or Green? as the state question in 1996, in reference to whether you prefer red or green chile on your food.

The exhibit traces the origins of the chile and how the Spanish brought the plant to the American Southwest in the early 1600s. It features the emergence of regional production centers such as Hatch and Chimayo, and the development of specific varieties by researchers such as Fabian Garcia at New Mexico A&MA College in the early 1900s.

Following the historical section, the exhibit focuses on how the chile became a key component of New Mexico culture – both as a cuisine and as a symbol.

Grasslands of North America and Africa
through January 2019

This exhibit features the underutilized and little-known taxidermy mount collection of the Natural Science Research Laboratory of the Museum. This collection contains rare and charismatic species, including many herbivores and carnivores of the African Savannah and the North American prairies. In addition, the exhibit highlights the ecological parameters of these grasslands, as well as explores the natural history attributes of the animals that live in these regions.

Grasslands are a recognizable feature of the biotic landscape, with most of us being familiar with terms like prairies, savannahs, and maybe even steppes. Grasslands are thought to comprise 40‒70 percent of the world’s landmass and are generally defined based on the percentage of grasses relative to non-grass plants such as sedges, rushes, forbs, and woody plants such as shrubs, vines, and trees.

Typically, the types of grasses present in a grassland are controlled by temperature and rainfall. Most people associate grasslands with grazing animals such as cows, bison, wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, but grasslands are important in a variety of other ways.

In an exhibit at the Museum of Texas Tech University, funded by the Helen Jones Foundation, we explore the various roles of the world’s grasslands. In particular, we compare the number of mammalian species occurring in North American grasslands, including the region around Lubbock, to those found in the famous African grasslands that we see on television and read about in books. Specifically, we focus on different types of grasslands, how they are classified, what are the important characteristics and attributes of grasslands, and what steps we can take to preserve them.

For this exhibit, we arranged for several of the taxidermy specimens housed in the Museum’s Natural Science Research Laboratory (NSRL) to be placed on public display. The NSRL contains one the largest research collections of mammal specimens at a North American university—the collection includes skins, skeletons, and tissue samples from more than 130,000 specimens, as well as taxidermy specimens. These taxidermy specimens, most of which are decades old, were donated to the NSRL by hunters and their families for research and education purposes.

Although many of the specimens displayed here represent species that currently are threatened or endangered and now protected by law, none of the specimens in the NSRL collections were hunted or collected from the wild while the species had protected status.

Throughout the exhibit, we use the taxidermy specimens, photographs, and videos to illustrate the kinds of mammalian biodiversity present in grasslands and to introduce the visitor to the different categories of animals—carnivores, herbivores and granivores. We also provide interesting tidbits surrounding the biology and natural history of these organisms. Further, we use the exhibit to explore topics such as: why does Africa have many more species of bovids than North America, what is resource partitioning, what was the Pleistocene megafauna, what was the impact of ice ages on grasslands, and what are the differences between true horns, antlers, pronghorns, ossicones, and rhino horns? Finally, topics that have the potential to have a major interest to the Lubbock community such as dustbowls, biodiversity in a monoculture agricultural system verses biodiversity in a grassland, the role of hunting, and the official Texas bison herd, are presented in order for our visitors to learn more about our local grasslands and what they can do to help preserve and promote grassland conservation.

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 ICE AGE ON THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
This gallery features prehistoric megafauna from the Pleistocene Period including mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant camels, short-faced bears, and dire wolves. This exhibition is from the Museum’s collections and reflects the local area’s distant natural history as revealed by ongoing research activities of the Museum and the Lubbock Lake Landmark.

REMNANT TRUST
A new partnership between Texas Tech University and The Remnant Trust, Inc. brings a collection of original, first edition, and rare early written works to display at the Museum. These works are intended to inspire an elevated public understanding of individual liberty and human dignity through hands-on availability of the world’s great ideas in original form. The Remnant Trust, Inc. will maintain a permanent presence in the Museum.

A new display will open February 29 with works that explore the relationship between economics and political freedom. The main collection of The Remnant Trust, Inc. is housed on the Texas Tech campus in the Southwest Collection/ Special Collections Library.

The Museum of Texas Tech University houses a diverse range of collections including: anthropology, fine arts, clothing and textiles, history, natural sciences and paleontology. As an educational and research component of Texas Tech University, the Museum is committed to serving our diverse community, through a range of exhibitions and public programming. The Museum is a non-profit institution with free admission.

The Museum was founded in 1929 as the West Texas Museum, just four years after the creation of what was then known as Texas Technological College.

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums since 1990, the Museum is home to more than 7 million objects. Only 3% of the nation’s nearly 35,000 museums hold this accreditation. It also is a teaching and research facility offering a master’s degree in museum science.

The Museum’s Natural Science Research Laboratory maintains major natural history collections of mammals, birds, invertebrates and genetic resources. These collections are available to researchers at academic, scientific, and government institutions around the world for scientific investigation, discovery and problem-solving in the natural sciences.

Lubbock Lake Landmark, a National Historic Landmark, is an internationally known archeological and natural history preserve containing an extensive cultural record of life on the Southern Plains dating back 12,000 years.

The Museum is a participant in Lubbock First Friday Art Trail and a member of Blue Star Museums and the Green Museums Initiative.

Mission Statement

Through its collections and programs, the Museum of Texas Tech University engages campus and community to enhance understanding of self- and community identity, society, and the world; to empower people to be informed citizens of the 21st century; and to enrich lives.

Statement of Purpose

Established in 1929, the Museum is an educational, scientific, cultural, and research element of Texas Tech University. It is a not-for-profit institution by virtue of being a part of Texas Tech University. The Museum’s purpose is to support the academic and intellectual mission of Texas Tech University through the collection, preservation, documentation, and research of scientific and cultural material and to disseminate information about those collections and their scientific and cultural topics through exhibition, interpretation, and publication for primary, secondary, and higher education students, the scholarly community, and the general public. The Museum aspires to provide the highest standard of excellence in museological ethics and practices, while pursuing continuous improvement, stimulating the greatest quantity of quality research, conservation, interpretation, exhibition, and education, and providing support for faculty, staff, and students. The Museum is a multi-faceted institution that includes the main building, the Helen Devitt Jones Auditorium and Sculpture Court, Moody Planetarium, Natural Science Research Laboratory, and Lubbock Lake Landmark, an archaeological and natural history preserve.

In country music, a last name like LeDoux casts a big, storied and bittersweet shadow, but it’s one Ned LeDoux doesn’t mind standing in one bit. Having been a drummer in his dad Chris’ band Western Underground since 1998, Ned knew from an early age that he had “no Plan B” – but to play music,

Keeping the cowboy in country is important to Ned as you can hear in the song “Forever A Cowboy” – also co-written with his dad. Ned puts his own spin on his endless touring with “Brother Highway” – about all the time he has spent on the road with various bands since his days in high school. Ned says he doesn’t even need a road map anymore – that he and the highway are like brothers.

For the last year, Ned has been steadily touring and opening for acts like Toby Keith, Chris Janson, Aaron Watson and Randy Houser. Yet now that he is in front of the mic, Ned has a new goal.

“There’s an age group who doesn’t know who Chris LeDoux is and I just want to keep his name out there. I want to reintroduce him to people who’ve maybe heard of him but didn’t know what he did. Just carry on his legacy and carry on his music and at the same time show them what I can do.

”On tour, you’re guaranteed to hear “This Cowboy’s Hat” – the song most requested by his fans and a request Ned is honored to oblige. His personal favorite song to sing though is one called “We Ain’t Got It All.”

It’s the first original song Ned co-wrote with his dad and seems to pick up right where Chris left off. And with his debut album “Sagebrush” available now, there is a new voice to carry on the LeDoux sound.

KELLY WILLIS

Kelly Willis is Back Being Blue, to take a color-coded cue from the title of her seventh album. It’s a shade she wears well, though long-patient fans might just say: You had us at back. They’ll take a new Willis record in whatever hue it comes, now that it’s been 11 years since her last solo release, 2007’s “Translated from Love.” The Austin-based singer/songwriter has hardly been MIA in the intervening years, having recorded and toured as part of a duo with Bruce Robison. But she’s setting the duet M.O. aside for do-it-alone mode, at least as far as the spotlight is concerned (Robison hovers just outside it this time as producer). Hers is a solo voice again, but it’s not necessarily sotto voce: This is an album of songs about lonesomeness that also happens to be a crackling good time.

Willis wrote six of the 10 tracks on “Back Being Blue” by herself, the first time she’s penned that big a portion of one of her albums without outside assists.  That doesn’t mean she’s gone into deeply confessional territory for her “Blue” period.  Lyrically, “it’s not an extremely personal record,” she says, downright cheerfully. There may be profundity within, but what Willis was really after was a sense of playfulness. “I wanted to make a fun, interesting record that leans on the influences that first inspired me to make music,” she says. “I don’t think of it as even being so much about my vocals as an album about vibe.” Explaining, “The important thing to me was to take these songs and to get them just right musically. And in my mind, I was thinking of where maybe Skeeter Davis meets Rockpile, or Marshall Crenshaw meets the Louvin Brothers.”

BRUCE ROBISON  

In regard to the Lone Star State’s finest tunesmiths, Bruce Robison lands at the top of the heap. His songwriting turned the heads of some of the industry’s biggest artists and took them to the top of the charts (Dixie Chicks’ No. 1 version of “Travelin’ Soldier,” George Strait’s recording of “Wrapped” and the beautiful Tim McGraw/Faith Hill rendition of “Angry All the Time,” to name a few). While those achievements might be considered the pinnacle of a song writing career to some, Robison has never been one to rest on his laurels. He is always creating.

The last two releases from Robison were as a duo project with wife and acclaimed singer/songwriter, Kelly Willis. Cheaters Game and Our Year were released just over a year apart in 2013 and 2014, respectively, to rave reviews.

After touring extensively to support the duo’s releases, Bruce turned his focus toward his other passion project, The Next Waltz, a “virtual social house” of music, videos and interviews spotlighting the artists and songs that make up the pedigree of this generation’s cream of the crop. In his studio located just outside of Austin, Robison hosts and records an evolving array of artists who share in his commitment to continue the tradition of collaborative creativity. Everything in Bruce’s studio is recorded on analog tape “with no digital shenanigans – just like back when music was good.”

From Robison’s perspective, that difference – between digital and analog – makes all the difference. In fact, it’s so important to him, that tag line appears on the liner notes of Bruce’s new album, Bruce Robison & The Back Porch Band, was released in 2017. While immersed in the process of capturing some of his favorite songs and artists for The Next Waltz, Robison was inspired to round up his own band and lay down a collection of originals, co-writes and covers to put his personal stamp on. With a list of musician credits that could easily be mistaken for a hall-of-fame roll call, Robison delivers a truly organic listening experience that includes “happy accidents and all kinds of things that just feel real.  Recording the way we do really allows the players to bring their own voices, their own styles, into the music,” says Robison. “That’s the kind of vibe I’m trying to get back to. I want to let people see how cool this process is and how much it has to do with country music, and how the kind of music that we make is tied to those traditions.”

Join us for coffee and donuts as we explore the Life and the Art of Robert Gober and Duane Hanson.  Moderator for the art talk will be Christian Conrad.

Duane Hanson and Robert Gober are two highly acclaimed American artists who both use the concept of realism as points of focus in their sculpture. Duane Hanson created sculptures so realistic that they have often been mistaken for real people. Often featuring as models’ individuals who are off the beaten path, Hanson has created sculptures of tourists, museum guards, and custodians. Robert Gober uses objects familiar to the viewer to create surrealistic installations. Using objects such as sinks and human forms, Gober creates a slight twist in each object through its location or appearance. Join us as we examine the lives of these two eclectic artists.
