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

The Buddy Holly Center is partnering with The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation headquartered in London, England, to open a new permanent exhibition in the Center’s Foyer Gallery beginning on Friday, February 3, 2017.

The exhibition will feature an exact replica of Buddy’s Model J200 Gibson 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.

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.

THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE

Event Details

THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE AT TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY
Southwest Collections/Special Collections Library
Monday-Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
2805 15th Street  (15th Street and Detroit)   806.742.9010

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

Donald Walker Collection [VA006128]

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

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.

More about the Vietnam Graffiti Project

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 [VA050136]

Institute of Museum and Library ServicesPrimary 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.

Digital copies of materials in the Virtual Archive are available. See our pricing list and guidelines for more information.

REMEMBERING PEARL HARBOR
December 2016 – September 2017

December 7th, 1941:  The Seventy-fifth Anniversary
Oral Histories of people who were at Pearl Harbor and tattered flag loaned to the Museum.  This flag was actually on the top of a ship 75 years ago.  Forty-eight star World War II navy battle flag is courtesy of Howard Mercer, Signalman aboard LCI(M) 353 assault ship. The ship’s commander ordered Mercer to lower this flag and hoist a new one after receiving news of the Japanese surrender.

A new exhibit in the Coronelli Rotunda at the Southwest Collection/ Special Collections Library commemorates this pivotal event in American history and features excerpts from oral histories and manuscripts permanently housed at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, Texas Tech University.

Chris Oglesby collection, exhibit now at SWC/SCL 

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.

Sept. 1, 2016, marks the 10th anniversary of the book’s publication.

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.

Across Texas curated by Sang-Mi Yoo, Associate Professor of Art at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX, features current print works by faculty and students from three university printmaking programs in Texas.

We are living in a world that social media network is prevalent. It is becoming more and more important for artists to network with other artists and organizations, creating a sense of global connection. By nature, printmakers are fluid with this direction as they are collectors, collaborators and disseminators by nature. This exhibition serves as a survey of university print programs in the state of Texas and introduces current trends and educational goals in printmaking. Further, I hope this exhibition cultivates a mindset of aspiring art students to actively search for their own networks and learn from outside of their comfort zones.

As an inaugural exhibition as part of BP5 Symposium organized by Texas Tech Printmaking program, this exhibition largely covers three geographical locations in Texas: University of North Texas, Texas State University, and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. As we continue the symposium in the future, this exhibition would cover broader university programs in and outside of Texas.

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

 

ACROSS TIME AND TERRITORY:  THE NRHC STORY
“Across Time and Territory: the National Ranching Heritage Center Story,” is a permanent exhibit covering the walls of the Don and Kay Cash Reception Hall. Material in the exhibition is present in a mural form with 3-D enhancements. Also in this area are two touch-screen monitors featuring attractive photographs of the structures in the historical park, presented in a virtual tour format, along with educational information about each building, available in both English and Spanish suitable for adults and children.
WRITERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE
The exhibit title – “Writers of the Purple Sage” – is a word play on Zane Grey’s famous novel, “Riders of the Purple Sage.”  Published in 1912, the novel set the pattern for the modern Western and sold over a million copies.

Owen Wister, who wrote “The Virginian: A Horseman of the Plains,” had his 1902 novel form the basis of four movies and a television series.  Wister’s novel defined the Western genre and paved the way for such authors as Zane Grey, Louis L’Amour and Larry McMurtry, all of whom are represented in this exhibit.

Writers such as Willa Cather, J. Evetts Haley, Tom Lea and Elmer Kelton, to name a few, allowed every one of their readers a chance to experience the American West as it once was or might have been.  Written in ordinary language about ordinary people and places, Western literature has become an important part of our national literary scope.

The permanent collection of the NRHC includes a wide range of Western and ranch-related books, many of which are first edition signed manuscripts that will be part of this exhibit.

BLUE STEVENS GALLERY
The Blue Stevens Gallery is home to a collection of items that have been donated to the NRHC over the past several months. This Gallery features changing content as new items are donated to the NRHC.

LEVER ACTION RIFLES
An exhibit that examines the history and development of the lever-action rifle from its earliest form. The exhibit also features lever-action firearms from the NRHC collections.

SADDLES
A selection of saddles from the Texas Cattle Raisers Museum collection.

FUTURESCAPES
February 2 – September 1, 2017
Futurescapes asks viewers to study images and consider how words both encapsulate response and influence thinking, perhaps opening new ways of seeing. These images change monthly. Concurrent with this exhibit, an interactive kiosk is traveling around campus inviting participants to select images and captions.

Contemplating the future—or possible futures—may summon images of the classic films Metropolis or Blade Runner, to name only two. It may conjure thoughts of the Rapture. It may make one smile with pleasure as the first driverless cars hit the road under the auspices of Über. We are endlessly reminded of (or threatened in the name of) our responsibilities to our grandchildren, to our alma maters, to our planet. What we put off today will have repercussions the day after tomorrow.  The future is a central concept for human life and plays an outsize role in politics, religion, economics—indeed across most fields that structure our thinking. The very unknowability of the future renders it a supremely powerful concept for motivating human action in the present.

FUTUREscapes explores this theme by asking viewers to study images and consider how words both encapsulate response and influence thinking, perhaps opening new ways of seeing. These images change monthly. Concurrent with this exhibit, an interactive kiosk is traveling around campus inviting participants to select images and captions.

LEONARDO’S KITCHEN:  LAND ARTS
February 17 – April 23, 2017
Land Arts is a “semester abroad in our own backyard,” where architects, artists and writers camp for two months while traveling 5,820 miles overland to experience major land art monuments like Double Negative, Spiral Jetty and Sun Tunnels. They also visit sites expanding our understanding of what land art might be such as pre-contact archaeology of Chaco Canyon, scientific exploration at the Very Large Array and military-industrial operations in the Great Salt Lake Desert.

The exhibition culminates the semester-long transdisciplinary field program Land Arts of the American West with the Texas Tech University College of Architecture presenting documents, objects and constructions by students Roberto Becerra, Liz Janoff, Matthew Mendez, Kaitlin Pomerantz and Claudia Vásquez. Land Arts is “semester abroad in our own backyard” where architects, artists, and writers camp for two months while traveling 5,820 miles overland to experience major land art monuments—Double Negative, Spiral Jetty, Sun Tunnels—while also visiting sites expanding our understanding of what land art might be such as pre-contact archeology of Chaco Canyon, scientific exploration at the Very Large Array, and military-industrial operations in the Great Salt Lake Desert.

To negotiate the multivalent meaning of these places and shed light on strategies to aid their comprehension we invite the wisdom of field guests—writers, artists and interpreters—to join specific portions of our journey. 2016 field guests included Center for Land Use Interpretation director Matt Coolidge, art collective Post Commodity, and writer Lucy Lippard among many others. Land Arts hinges on the primacy of first person experience and the realization that human-land relationships are rarely singular.

PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ
February 22 – June 18, 2017

Elegant evening clothes from the mid-19th century to the end of the 20th century will highlight how Americans have dressed for special occasions. From the finery of the 19th century to the lime green Mollie Parnis gown worn by First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, to the first State Dinner honoring a female leader, Indira Gandhi, this exhibit shows how the popular silhouette of the era was enhanced by fine fabrics and embellishment for important events.

BRUCE MONRO’S FERRYMAN’S CROSSING
February 19 – June 18, 2017
Best known for his work in open landscapes, British artist, Bruce Munro transforms the Museum’s environment with light. His manipulations of this medium create unexpected associations and transforms spaces. He has crafted a newer installation, Ferryman’s Crossing, in the more controlled environment of the Museum of Texas Tech University’s gallery.

IN THE BLOOD:  THE WAR BETWEEN VAMPIRES AND WEREWOLVES
October 30, 2016 – April 2017

For millennia, vampires and werewolves have fought a deadly war seeped in blood, an unending battle fueled by an everlasting hatred of each other. Or have they? Myth tells us that under the cover of darkness, they prey on unsuspecting victims. They watch quietly from the shadows waiting to pounce and quench their unending thirst for the nectar of life – human blood. But what’s the truth behind the lore? Which real animals have inspired and shaped the myths? Vampire bats and wolves are the real-life faces of these horrible tales. But there are a multitude of other blood-suckers who inhabit nature. The soon-to-open In the Blood exhibition takes you on a journey of discovery. Learn how bats and wolves have been transformed in folk lore and modern fiction. See how popular culture has re-invented the vampire and werewolf through film, television, comics and pop novels. From blood-borne diseases to the mythology of the cultural phenomena of Dracula, Texas Tech research is at the heart of In the Blood. Join the Museum of Texas Tech University for a truly monstrous experience.

Bring your parents, bring your kids … and bring some garlic and wolf bane – just in case…..

Be very afraid.

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

WORLD WAR II ON THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
Lubbock Gallery

An “up from the basement” exhibition from the Museum’s collections.  Photographs from the WWII era pertaining to Lubbock.

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
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.

 

AZ<>NM<>TX — 20th and 21st CENTURY ART IN TEXAS, NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA
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 such as 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.

 

DIEKEMPER GALLERY OF PRE-COLUMBIAN ART
Art created in Central and South America before the 15th century is referred to
as Pre-Columbian art, which is artwork created before the voyage of Christopher
Columbus in 1492. Pre-Columbian cultures believed in many different deities
(gods) who controlled all aspects of life and nature. In this gallery, there are
a variety of objects made by the historical people of Colombia and Panama.
Ranging from sparkling beads and shiny gold, to earthy pots and figures, the
items in this gallery had great meaning in Pre-Columbian culture. Some items
had a practical use, like for drinking, and some were important reminders of
symbols, such as opposing forces like good vs. evil.

Rededicated in 2005, many of the interesting artifacts in the Diekemper gallery of Pre-Columbian Art were donated by Ray J. Diekemper Jr. and Lou Dunn Diekemper.
Ray attended Stanford and Harvard before moving to Lubbock, TX. He becamean independent oil operator, and he and his wife became active members of the Lubbock community participating in organizations such as the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, the Lubbock Economic Council, YWCA, Women’s Protective Services, Junior League of Lubbock, the Science Spectrum board, and both were founding members of the South Plains Food Bank. Ray passed away in 1999. Lou Dunn Diekemper is still a generous benefactor of both Lubbock and Texas Tech University.

Groups living in Pre-Columbian times made pottery for many reasons.
They made vessels of all sizes and shapes using a coil method: building the walls from a long string of clay before smoothing them out and adding pictures or shapes.  All the pottery that you see here was made by hand. Pre-Columbian cultures did not have the modern techniques that we have today. They decorated their pottery by incising (carving) designs onto the clay and painting them with minerals they found in their area.

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.

Clybourne Park is the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Bruce Norris, which examines the way in which we interact in today’s global village. Beginning just after the events of A Raisin in the Sun, the play, set in the Younger’s new residence, is then seen 50 years later, a run-down tenement to be gentrified for new and very different residents.

Ben Brantley of the New York Times called it, “A sharp-witted comedy of American uneasiness.”

Free admission

Local guest choirs from Monterey High School and Lubbock High School will be collaborating with the TTU School of Music’s University Choir for a free concert titled “Hold On!” this Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. in Hemmle Recital Hall. This performance marks the final appearance with the University Choir of beloved Director of Choral Studies Richard Bjella before he enters retirement following this academic semester.

The prelude to the concert will feature two selections, performed by each of the high school choirs. The Monterey Varsity Choir under the direction of Jeffrey Delman will lead off with Gwyneth Walker’s rendition of the popular hymn “How Can I Keep From Singing?” Then, the Lubbock High School Varsity Choir under the direction of Lindsey Spitsberg will perform the “Lux Aeterna” movement from John Rutter’s Requiem.

Transitioning into the University Choir’s portion of the program, their first set will begin with Shawn Kirchner’s stirring arrangement of Reverend J.K. Alwood’s hymn “Unclouded Day,” followed by the coquettish Soir d’ete by Dutch composer Henk Badings and the exuberant and danceable Tchaka by Haitian-American composer Sydney Guillaume.

The second set will be accompanied by visual slides, courtesy of Michael Englehardt, and will feature the conducting of the University Choir’s two graduate assistants. Musicology professor and early music specialist Dr. Angela Mariani will join the choir and assistant graduate conductor Minji Kim to provide hurdy-gurdy accompaniment for a chant by Hildegard von Bingen. Associate graduate conductor Ryan Person will then lead the choir through Franz Schubert’s Die Nacht, conveying a peace and stillness of night-time. Returning to the twentieth century but maintaining the “stellar” theme, Ms. Kim will direct Daniel Elder’s arrangement of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and Mr. Person will close the set with Jonathan Dove’s Seek Him that Maketh the Seven Stars, with guest faculty organist Dr. John Hollins.

The decidedly sacred third set will begin with Samuel Barber’s “Agnus Dei,” before segueing into young composer Daniel Knaggs’s setting of Psalm 100 (“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands!”), which will be receiving its world premiere this evening. A small ensemble and trio of trumpets led by Mr. Person will express the introspectively powerful Lord, Thou Hast Been our Refuge as set by Ralph Vaughan Williams, before the set ends with the “Gloria” and “Agnus Dei” sections of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Mass in C Major.

Spirituals will comprise the final set of the concert as Ian David Coleman’s The Trumpet Sounds Within-a My Soul combines the traditional “Steal Away” with trumpet calls by DMA performance student Marc Sutton. Returning to the theme of the concert, the last selection is Moses Hogan’s brilliant setting of the traditional “Hold On.”

For more information about this event and the University Choir, please contact Hannah Porter, Unit Coordinator for the University Choirs, at (806) 834-7828 or at hannah.porter@ttu.edu.

Event Details

On March 3rd and 4th, guest conductor Daniel Myssyk will lead the LSO in its fourth installment of its Masterworks Series: Tchaikovsky Pathétique. The concert will feature pianist, Andrew Staupe, performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Minor.

The LSO will follow with a Lubbock premiere performance of Jennifer Higdon’s Blue Cathedral. Inspired by tragedy, Blue Cathedralis rich with passion and is sure to stir the audiences’ emotions. Finally, savor the emotional melodies of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”; the final composition before his death. With a repertoire this fervent, Master Works Four is sure to be one of the most powerful performances of the 70th anniversary season.

Hailed as an “immaculate” (Minneapolis Star Tribune) artist, American pianist Andrew Staupe is emerging as one of the distinctive voices of a new generation of pianists. In 2012 Andrew made his Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim, in which New York Concert Review raved “Staupe gave a brilliant performance, handling the virtuosic demands with apparent ease… I was stunned- this was one of the most incredible performances… A once in a lifetime performance!”  Andrew has appeared with the Minnesota Orchestra on 5 subscription series since 2006, and has since performed with the Baltimore Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, Houston Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Arkansas Symphony, Tallahassee Symphony, and many other orchestras throughout the United States. He has collaborated with distinguished conductors Osmo Vänskä, Bobby McFerrin, Jahja Ling, Gerard Schwarz, Andrew Litton, Cristian Macelaru, Jeff Tyzik, Larry Rachleff, Josep-Caballé Domenech, Daniel Hege, Robert Franz, and Mischa Santora. He has performed across the United States and extensively in Europe, appearing in Russia, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Romania, and Bulgaria. On tour in Europe, he has appeared in distinguished concert venues including the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Rachmaninov Hall in Moscow, the Salle Cortot in Paris, and the Ateneul Roman in Romania.

An avid chamber musician, Andrew has jammed with legendary vocalist Bobby McFerrin, played Tangos with The Assad Brothers, and has performed with Chee-Yun, Sharon Robinson, Martin Chalifour, Jessica Rivera, Desmond Hoebig, Jane Peters, and Joseph Swensen. He was a guest artist at the 2014 La Jolla Summerfest, the 2010 Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival, as well as the Glacier Symphony’s 2013 Festival Amadeus. Andrew has a keen interest in performing new music and has premiered a number of works for solo piano and chamber ensemble by composers Howard Shore, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Christopher Walczak, Christopher Goddard, Karl Blench, and Anthony Brandt. Other notable performances include concerts at the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress in Washington DC, and Steinway Hall and Trinity Wall Street in New York City. His live performances have been broadcast nationally on WQXR in New York City, KSJN in Minneapolis, and KUHF in Houston. He has performed twice on American Public Media’s “Performance Today,” and on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” in 2004.

Andrew has earned prizes in a number of competitions including the 2011 Pro Musicis International Award, Gold Medal at the 2010 Young Texas Artists Music Competition, first prize at the 2006 WAMSO (Minnesota Orchestra Volunteer’s Association) Competition, and was also a Laureate of the 2013 American Pianist’s Association competition finals. A native of Saint Paul, Minnesota, he studied at Rice University with Jon Kimura Parker, and at the University of Minnesota with Lydia Artymiw. Other past teachers include Bettye Ware and Paul Wirth.

Viva Aztlan Festival (VAF) is celebrating its 23rd Anniversary of Ballet Folklorico Dance Workshops, Competitions & Showcase and Mariachi Concert on March 10-11, 2017 held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.  VAF is honored to hold the record of longest running Ballet Folklorico competitions and invites everyone to come and witness why it continues to thrive!

Lubbock Centro Aztlan Organization is under the umbrella of Ballet Folklorico Aztlan, was founded by the late Bidal Aguero in 1989 with a purpose to enrich the community with the Mexican and Mestizo culture through art and stage productions.  The production of the event, “Viva Aztlan Festival” began in 1993 with Ballet Folklorico competitions and Theatre productions, but as time passed the festival continued with only Folklorico competitions and later added Mariachi workshops and concert.

VAF folklorico workshops will begin at 10:00 a.m-5:30 p.m. on Friday. The workshops are taught by the invited Maestros from Coahuila, Mexico and San Jose, CA. VAF will hold a “Pachanga” at Rooster’s Food Truck Yard, 1602 Main Street,  beginning at 4:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. The “Pachanga” will have a variety of food trucks with entertainment by Mariachi Mexico Lindo, Los Canelos and Veracruz Harpist Salvador Peña Herrera. The event is free to attend.

VAF folklorico competitions begin at 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.  The competitions are open to the public because all performances are unique and very entertaining, but above all crowd participation is encouraged!   Participating groups arrive in Lubbock from Hobbs & Albuquerque, NM, and others from cities within Texas.  The crowd’s energy will help fuel the groups’ entire performance; although, technique and skill is the ultimate judge.  Three qualified Maestros (master teachers) will score all participating groups and hold the final tally until Saturday night where VAF will crown, ‘Best of Festival!’

Following the day’s competitions, Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m., VAF will feature a spectacular performance by the previous year’s ‘Best of Festival’ winner, Austin High’s Ballet Folklorico, along with a special guest from Veracruz, Mexico, harpist Salvador Peña Herrera. The evening will end with an explosive concert featuring Mariachi Azteca de America from San Antonio, TX. The Mariachi have been back to back winners of the Houston Rodeo Mariachi Competition. The evening represents what this Festival embraces which is to continue to educate the community about the richness of the Mexican Mestizo culture through music and dance.

The festival is open to the public.  Pre-Sale tickets for all day Saturday is $15 and evening only $10 available to purchase online www.vivaaztlan.org.  Last day to purchase pre-sale tickets is Thursday, March 9 at midnight.  Tickets purchased at the door for Saturday evening only is $15.

Gary P. Nunn has been TAKING TEXAS TO THE COUNTRY and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond.  His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”

In addition to the many gold albums on which he has played and/or written and published songs, Nunn has earned a number of notable awards and honors over the years. He was named an Official Ambassador to the World by Texas Governor Mark White, and years later Governor Rick Perry also declared him an Ambassador of Texas Music. In 2004, he was inducted into the Texas Hall of Fame, and he is also honored in the West Texas Walk of Fame in Lubbock.  And now, more than half a century since he first started playing music, Nunn enthuses, “I’m having more fun now than ever. It just feels good. When you have a great band behind you and the audience is out there on the dance floor, you just say, ‘Yeah! This the reason I got into this in the first place.’ I love it more than ever.”

“The thing I’m proudest of is being a member of the West Texas Walk of Fame in Lubbock with Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Bob Wills and Roy Orbison — guys who were my heroes. To me that’s just the greatest thing,” he enthuses. “And then today, turning on Sirius/XM radio and hearing myself played next to Hank Williams, Hank Thompson, Willie Nelson and Johnny Bush. I’m just so proud and pleased to be there among them.”  And now, more than half a century since he first started playing music, Nunn enthuses, “I’m having more fun now than ever. It just feels good. When you have a great band behind you and the audience is out there on the dance floor, you just say, ‘Yeah! This the reason I got into this in the first place.’ I love it more than ever.”

Free and open to the public.  Coffee and donuts provided.

Marc Chagall (1887-1985): A pioneering artist in the use of color, Chagall created images that continue to radiate into the contemporary. An immigrant to Paris, Chagall combined images from his Russian Jewish heritage with the contemporary modern styles of the Avante-Garde. Chagall’s life was constantly influenced by the politics of his time: he moved from Russia to Paris and eventually the United States as he narrowly escaped the Nazi war machine. In the post war years, Chagall continued to create art, including some of his best-known works made in stained glass.

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.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a 1962 American drama film directed by Robert Mulligan. The screenplay by Horton Foote is based on Harper Lee’s 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. It stars Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch and Mary Badham as Scout.

The film, considered to be one of the best ever made, received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and was a box-office success, earning more than 10 times its budget. The film won three Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Peck, and was nominated for eight, including Best Picture.

In 1995, the film was listed in the National Film Registry. It also ranks twenty-fifth on the American Film Institute’s 10th anniversary list of the greatest American movies of all time. In 2003, AFI named Atticus Finch the greatest movie hero of the 20th century.

To Kill a Mockingbird marked the film debuts of Robert Duvall, William Windom, and Alice Ghostley.

In Big Band history, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them, and no other band could come close to Tommy’s when it came to playing ballads. Tommy Dorsey, “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing”, was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods – at superb dancing and listening tempos. Tommy sustained these moods through the arrangements of the likes of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl and Sy Oliver, and he showcased singers who could project them brilliantly.

Jack Leonard sang with the band for about four years, recording such fine sides as “Dedicated to You”, “If It’s The Last Thing I do”, “Little White Lies”, “You Taught Me To Love Again”, “Once In A While”, and, probably the most famous of all, “Marie”. With the band singing vocal riffs as Jack sang the straight lyric, “Marie” was so successful that he recorded several more standard tunes with the same formula. They include “Who”, “Yearning”, and “East of The Sun”. “Song of India”, the other side of “Marie”, was also a huge Dorsey hit.

Frank Sinatra’s career blossomed with Dorsey, and, with Sinatra’s vocals, the band became more successful than ever. Frank had often admitted that listening to Tommy helped him develop his phrasing and breathing, along with his musical taste and knowledge.

Sy Oliver infused the band with a new musical spirit. It was a gentler version of the rocking, rhythmic sounds that he had created for Jimmy Lunceford, toned down somewhat and played with more precision by the Dorsey Band. These original tunes included “Easy Does It”, “Quiet Please”, “Sing High”, “Yes, Indeed”, “Swingin’ On Nothing”, “Well, Git It”, and “Opus No 1”. Oliver also had a unique way of approaching a straight pop tune, injecting a soft, two-beat feeling into. He did this with resounding success in such arrangements as “What Can I Say After I Say I’m Sorry? “, “For You”, “Swanee River”, “Mandy”, “Make Up Your Mind”, “Chicago”, and “On The Sunny Side Of The Street”.

The vocalists worked both individually and together, turning out several hits of superior quality. There was Sinatra’s “This Love of Mine”, Jo Stafford’s “Embraceable You”, the Pied Pipers’ and Sinatra’s “There Are Such Things”, “Just As Though You Were Here”, “Street Of Dreams”, and “Oh, Look At Me Now”. Their biggest hit of all, the one that established vocal groups forever, was “I’ll Never Smile Again”.

The Band was at its best in this decade. In the summer of 1941, it outranked every other band to finish first in one of the most indicative of all popularity polls, Martin Block’s Make Believe Ballroom contest.

By late 1946, it was becoming apparent that the band business was having problems. In December 1946, eight top bandleaders announced they were calling it quits – Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Les Brown, Jack Teagarden, Benny Carter, Ina Ray Hutton and Tommy Dorsey. Essentially, this was the official end of the Big Band Era. However, it was Tommy Dorsey who, in the years immediately following, fought the case of the big bands with words and action. Less than two years later, he was fronting a formidable new group.

The music world lost Tommy at an early age, but his legacy of great music has transcended time. The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra still represents explosive and swinging Big Band entertainment at its very best.

The sub-Saharan African connection will be taken up by the Women’s Chorale as well, as they perform the traditional song “Ndikhokhele Bawo” in the South African language of Xhosa. A vista of Norway in Ola Gjeilo’s “Tundra” will also be in the Women’s Chorale’s set as they evoke the Hardangervidda mountain plateau along with the added color of a string quartet.

1:00 – 6:00pm on Friday; 9:00am – 11:00pm on Saturday

Today many contemporary artists who originally started with printmaking as their primary medium continue to use it in a conceptual or altered technical form to create visually captivating and socially or politically engaging discourses through interdisciplinary approaches. For Beyond Printmaking 5, we chose Patricia Villalobos Echeverría as juror because she is an artist whose practice embodies this vision.

The BP5 Symposium, as an extension of Beyond Printmaking 5, will address the melding of the hybrid processes that allows printmaking to be a perfect vehicle in STEAM education. With so many possibilities in printmaking’s future, we will also address the implications of technology with regards to traditional printmaking process.

The BP5 Symposium will present opportunities to discuss the exciting possibilities of printmaking as it embraces not only traditional processes of sculpture, photography and installation, but also insinuates itself into engineering, computer science, and beyond.

After the recent stellar classic rock shows, many asked when we could bring them back again….so we combined the BEST OF THE BEST from two shows to bring it to you!

Join us as we present Cactus vocalists Jeff McCreight, Jason Fellers, Jeff Bailey, Mark Paden and Amber Pennington for a very special evening as we celebrate the enduring power of these three arena rock supergroups.  We’ll revisit the catalog of The Eagles – a group which transcended rock, pop and country to become arguably the most popular American music group in history with such songs as “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, “Desperado” and, of course, “Hotel California”.  We’ll join The Doobie Brothers on a trip down to “China Grove” as we “Listen To The Music”.  We’ll cap the salute with songs from the supergroup Fleetwood Mac and their classics, including “Dreams”, “Gypsy”,  “The Chain” and more.

Many of the greatest moments in cinema history are brought to life by the music soundtrack created to accent the scene.  Through the past nearly 100 years, the Walt Disney film studios have been at the forefront of this great tradition in film…and along the way, this celebrated family institution has created some of the most memorable songs of all time.

Join hosts Mike and Mariel Morgan – and featured vocalists Sheena Fadeyi, Haley Simpson, Avery Guyear, Mark Paden, Amber Pennington, Addie Bleu, Berklee Timmons, Ty McCraw, Madelyn Franklin, Ava Hurst, and Tiffani and Garrett Nelson – as the Cactus Theater salutes the movies in this very special production.

Truly a family event, this tribute concert promises an evening of musical moments brought to life through the magic of song.  You’ll hear classics like “When You Wish Upon A Star” (Pinocchio); “Let It Go” (Frozen); “Spoonful of Sugar” (Mary Poppins); “Bare Necessities” (The Jungle Book); “How Far I’ll Go” (Moana) – just a few examples of the songs represented in this very special presentation.  From the earliest Disney classics right up through current releases….all are songs that have touched the hearts of generations!

Make plans now to attend this concert with family or friends who’ll relish these cherished moments as you relive these masterpiece moments in cinema history.
