FINE ARTS GALLERY

A Wheeler Brothers Retrospective:  The Lubbock Years  *ends Friday*
Opens:  August 4, 2017  Closes:  September 22, 2017

This dynamic exhibition showcases the work of artist-brothers Jeff and Bryan Wheeler, who were a driving force in the Lubbock art scene over the last two decades. Curated from work completed over this time, “The Lubbock Years” features individual and collaborative paintings, drawings, collages, ceramics, sculpture, photographs, and prints that, as art critic Rainey Knudson wrote, “deliberately climbs into the crusty skin of every hackneyed Texas stereotype and turns it inside out, into something wild, exuberant, fresh and new.”

 

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

The Buddy Holly Gallery features a permanent exhibition on the life and music of Buddy Holly. Artifacts owned by the City of Lubbock, as well as other items that are on loan, are presented in this exciting exhibition. Included in the display are Buddy Holly’s Fender Stratocaster; a song book used by Holly and the Crickets, clothing, photographs, recording contracts, tour itineraries, Holly’s glasses, homework assignments, report cards, and much more

ABOUT THE CENTER

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

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

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

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

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

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:  –

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

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

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

Photo credit with this exhibit is:  Robert Anderson. Born 1924. 105th Signal Company. 10th Armored Division. 1st Army, Meitingen Work Camp. Years of Service: 1943–1945


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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

LONG TERM EXHIBITIONS

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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.

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 masters 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

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.

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.

My paintings are narratives about human relationships, with each other and with the natural world. The goal of my work is to describe the complexity of those relationships.

I paint in a realistic style that leans towards cartoon imagery. This style is influenced by Asian art, particularly Japanese, with their use of asymmetry and flatness and the tight detail found in Persian miniatures. In my most recent series, I am employing layers of images to talk about time and memory.

Steven lives and works in Denton, Texas

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
Julie Speed:  Excerpts from the Undertoad
August 4 – September 30, 2017
http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

Julie Speed, multi-media artist from Marfa, Texas, showcasing 17 pieces from her series “Undertoad.”

Artist Statement

Representational art is most often understood as a straightforward pitch/catch action.  The artist has an idea. She paints a picture of the idea. The viewer looks at the work and receives the idea.

With my work it’s mostly the other around:  the composition drives the narrative, not vice-versa.  Like anyone else I read, listen to the news and things happen to me ….so of course all that gets woven in, but the main thing I’m thinking about while I’m working is how to solve what I experience as a visual math puzzle.  My ideas, thoughts, theories and stories are in there….. but it’s how the shapes, lines, weights and colors get arranged and balanced that drives me.  Also, if something strikes me a as funny I almost always leave it in even when I probably shouldn’t.

That means that there’s no right or wrong way to see these paintings. I don’t want the viewer to receive a pre-chewed narrative from me.  If I’ve made a good piece of art then it ought to be loudly asking, “When you look at this painting, what does it make you think of?”

If your answer happens to lead you to writing a poem, song, story or making your own picture in response, then I’d love to read it, hear it or see it and would appreciate it if you’d send it along to me at juliespeed@gmail.com.

(If it’s a song and you send a video file please use we transfer instead of google docs.  Or mail me a jump drive: PO Box 1526, Marfa Texas 79843. Thanks

“What does this Mean?” This is one of the most common questions posed to artists about their work. For some, their art delivers a definitive statement based on the narrative built into the art piece. However, the work of Julie Speed offers the viewer an alternative experience with the story being left open to the interpretation of the individual. Speed creates an arena of activity for the viewer to develop his or her own interplay amongst the pieces. This method of creating art only works when the artist is able to give the viewer enough of an interesting composition. Speed accomplishes this goal by creating art that interweaves diverse material into a single unified vision.

In collecting the material for her pieces, Speed frequents sources that seem familiar to the viewer because of the historic aspects of their origin. The collage materials that Speed has been collecting since she was eighteen all come from sources that recall the past through their date and damaged condition. As she states, “The rules to my game are that I’m not allowed to take apart any good books, use any internet-sourced material or my scanner and printer to blow anything up or down, so I buy what I can find at flea markets, eBay, and junk stores. Sometimes I find things while I’m out walking.”  Speed’s source material also includes aspects of previous ownership that damages the paper used. In this way, she resurrects books and prints that are no longer usable because of their damage and instead reallocates them into her work. By creating in this fashion, she takes advantage of the excesses caused by modern society while also reminding us of our past through the images shown.

In her series “Undertoad,” Speed continues her unique art of storytelling through images that range in culture from vintage copies of Gray’s Anatomy to nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints on Mulberry wood paper. She then continues to work the images using gouache, an opaque watercolor paint, to add new elements and also repair the collaged images that might be damaged. Speed’s mastery of the materials makes the pieces of work effortlessly fit together, with the distinction between the two materials used being almost unrecognizable.

NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER AT TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY
3121 Fourth Street
806.742.0498
Experience the Real West

The NRHC is a museum and historical park located on the Texas Tech University campus. 48 historic ranch buildings and exhibits from the late 1700’s to the early 1900’s. Buildings include a cattle baron’s home, ranch headquarters, dugouts, bunkhouse and a one-room school house that have been moved from their original location and restored at the museum.

The new operating hours for the NRHC are 9 am – 5 pm Monday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Entrance to the historical park will close each day at 4 pm. The NRHC will be closed for all Texas Tech University holidays as well.

There is no admission fee, although donations are accepted.

The NRHC offers one 30-minute trolley tour of the historical park each Thursday at 10:30 am from April through October at a cost of $5 per person. Tours will be cancelled during bad weather. Rides on the 21-seat trolley will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Trolley tickets are available for purchase in the NRHC gift shop.

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.

Celestial Bodies by Ismael de Anda III
Opens Friday, September 22nd
Human Sciences Building Breezeway

De Anda, an artist-in-residency at Texas Tech University, worked with students to create the site-specific installation. De Anda’s imaginative concept seen in this piece responds to Lubbock’s culture of wind and aviation history as well as his personal interest in science fiction. Thus the name “Celestial Bodies”. The installation is composed of a variety of materials including souvenir t-shirts donated by the community. De Anda worked with the sculpture students to construct a monumental bone-like framework for the piece while designer and artist Professor Rachel Anderson worked with apparel design students to repurpose the t-shirts into panels of “skin” affixed to the structure. Together the skin and frame creates a captivating juxtaposition of art that De Anda deems as “mutant practices”. This term refers to the variety of techniques and media or materials used in his work.

De Anda was born in El Paso, Texas, and currently lives in Los Angeles where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from California Institute of the Arts. His work also focuses on concepts such as cultural history and political issues that stem from his memories of growing up in a United States and Mexico border town.
Tina Fuentes:  The Creative Process  **ends Sunday**
August 14 – September 24, 2017
Art Building Studio Gallery

Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents Tina Fuentes: The Creative Process an exhibition that focuses on Professor Tina Fuentes’ creative process engaged to produce new works that will be exhibited in the Museum of Texas Tech this fall.

The work in Tina Fuentes: The Creative Process is part of a research collaboration between Texas Tech School of Art Painting Professor Tina Fuentes and Eric Bruning, associate professor in Texas Tech’s Atmospheric Science Group in the Department of Geosciences. Bruning currently researches thunderstorms and lightning in cloud formations. For a National Science Foundation Grant, Bruning was looking for a visual component to relay to a broader audience this experience and exploration of these phenomena. He sought out Professor Fuentes, as an artist, to express this research.

Professor Fuentes thoroughly discussed the research with Bruning, sat in on presentations, and went storm chasing with his team. During the experience, she photographed and video recorded thousands of images of clouds and thunderstorms. In her studio, Professor Fuentes made hundreds of sketches, paintings, and drawings to get at the ideas, relationships, and sensations that emerged from her experiences. She experimented and sought out new materials like the locally sourced cotton with its interrelationship to weather and visual similarity to clouds. She also experimented with new processes like the video green-screen compositing which is also related to weather in television forecasting, and to help her attain the explosive nature of lightning in the clouds by displaying the action of her energetic mark making.

Displayed in Tina Fuentes: The Creative Process are some of the artifacts of Fuentes thinking and practice including sketches, documentation, and her implements for experimentation as she created work and prepared for the museum exhibition, Marcando el Relámpago.

THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE

Event Details

THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE AT TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY

Monday-Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

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

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 veterans 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.

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.

Perhaps no decade has given the world more great songs than the 1970s – and never before or since have so many great songwriters become major performing artists – performing the songs they crafted.  This special period is often referred to as the height of the singer/songwriter – and the Cactus pays tribute to four of the biggest names of this period in this all new production.

We’ll salute the genius of James Taylor, Carly Simon, Carole King and Jim Croce – all phenomenal tunesmiths and equally amazing performers – artists who captivated the world with their poignant lyrics and unforgettable melodies.  A partial listing of featured songs includes “Sweet Baby James”, “Fire and Rain”, “Operator”, “I Love You in a Song”, “It’s Too Late”, “You’ve Got a Friend”, “You’re So Vain” and “Nobody Does it Better”.

Confirmed performers for this special show are Jason Fellers, Lesley Sawyer, Jeff Bailey and Amber Pennington backed by our house band, The Rhythm Machine featuring Ross Raedeke, bass; Tony Garcia, drums; Johannes Bjerregaard, keys; Mark Paden, rhythm guitar; and Jacob Nalle, electric guitar.

Join us for this special night of music and memories as we revisit the greatest hits of some the most beloved artists of all time.

Early American Photographers with Christian Conrad
11:30am – 1:00pm
511 Avenue K
Free and open to the public

With the invention of photography, the concept of art was completely altered and a new form of expression was created. In America, itself a young nation, the camera was pursued by a group of artists interested in uniquely capturing their country. These photos helped document the building of the United States and also represent some of the first artistic uses of a new technology. Photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz took images of the building of New York City. Before that, Mathew Brady took pictures of early US Presidents and the Civil War, while his student Timothy O’Sullivan would take some of the first images of the western states. Later, the photographs of Dorothea Lange would document the Depression and the effects that it would have on ordinary Americans. Join us as we discuss these pioneering photographers of early America.

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.

Lubbock’s own version of an all-star super group will be taking the Cactus stage for one night of music and fun, Sunday, Sept. 10th at 7:00 pm! This ensemble is comprised of Kenny Maines, Donnie Maines, Junior Vasquez, Mickie Vasquez, Cary C. Banks and Mike Carraway.

This group of Lubbock Legends will play a wide variety of great music from the past several decades – trading off lead vocals and blending harmonies…playing songs you’ve known them for, plus a whole lot more! All of this adds up to a memorable, music-filled night to remember. From country to rock to pop to a few gospel songs – this group can literally play it all – and play it incredibly well. You’ve seen these musicians playing for years in various configurations, solo and more – but you’ve not seen them all together like this….so make plans to see this new, original production!

This is a special Sunday night show at the historic Cactus Theater so plan now to take in this great hometown showcase of truly legendary musical talent. You never know who might show up as a surprise guest!

Kent Rader and Jan McInnis are both baby boomers who have spent the past 20 years performing for thousands of business groups, non-profit organizations and other professional events.

They have a reputation for clean and funny humor – Jan was featured in the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post for her clean humor, and Kent’s clean comedy won him the Branson Comedy festival.
