Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall
Blake and Hannah Sanders
(w)rest
June 7 – July 27, 2019
http://lhuca.org/christine-devitt-exhibition-hall

In their exhibition, (w)rest, collaborative couple, Blake and Hannah Sanders of Orange Barrel Industries employs printed, repurposed fibers and craft traditions to share their domestic bliss amid concerns over an uncertain ecological future.

Statement:
The collaborations offered in (w)rest use the nuclear family and consumption of natural resources as complementary metaphors. Domestic bliss, as celebrated in America, is reliant on outmoded, gendered roles and division of labor. Methods of extraction, manufacturing, and consumption of resources are equally tired and inefficient. In both cases the warmth and comfort gained through old modes is potentially volatile and wholly unsustainable. Recent pieces extend the metaphor—incorporating the day to day labor of child-rearing, and how a new mouth to feed means a bigger mess to clean up. These pieces are executed using craft methods and repurposed remnants from the home, reinforcing the domestic metaphor, while thwarting our instincts toward quick consumption. The trash and packaging materials that compose Leftovers highlight our unintended environmental impact, its hidden costs in resources and labor, and the lasting, geological consequences on the landscape.

Printmaking is a dirty medium, so we strive to reduce the ecological impact of our work any way we can. A transition from paper to discarded, secondhand fibers saves material from the landfill. Crocheted pieces—inspired by traditional rag rugs—incorporate proofs on fabric, used clothes and linens from our own lives, those of friends and family, and sometimes strangers. The resulting Footprints document the detritus of our shared lives, literally linking the contributors together, emphasizing our shared history and considered future. The process uses nearly every scrap, continuing a tradition of salvaged material passed down through quilting circles and Japanese boro, garments mended and patched ad infinitum, that highlights history and care. Sewing is a metaphor for global interconnectedness as well. We are all stitched into an elaborate tapestry, so when one thread begins to unravel, the whole piece is in danger of falling apart.

(w)rest itself alludes to undulating expanses of serene prairie and fallow farmland. The tranquility is interrupted by a rupture, referencing the ecological violence of resources being wrested from the ground—by a large-scale portrait of our son, Levee—an impulsive act impacting landscape, wildlife, and geology alike. The piece is the clearest acknowledgement to date that our choice to grow and root our family has unperceived, far-reaching consequences that we must work to offset to earn our joyful, if uncertain future.

The large works in this exhibition appropriately describe the vast depth of humanity’s shared ecological imprint, and the monumental effort needed to change our ways to diminish future impact. We wish to thank LHUCA for hosting this exhibition. The Center’s impressive dimensions—a microcosm of all of Texas!—reinforces the scale of our task at hand.

The lasting viability of Earth, and humanity’s threat to that vitality, is a driving force behind our work. Much of the art we currently create is an acknowledgement of our complicity in ecological waste and destruction. These works provide a garish reminder of how our growing family, and the creature comforts that go with it, have a negative impact on the environment. We employ printmaking and traditional craft media to discuss how conventional notions of family, domesticity, and success affect our behavior as consumers and planetary neighbors. To practice what we preach, we use green methods and reused materials whenever possible. For example, all the material employed in the fiber works has been recycled or repurposed from various sources.

While the work could be read as thematically negative, it is both an indictment and celebration of our domestic bliss. Recent collaborations deal explicitly with the joys and trials of toddlerhood. The toddler metaphor is particularly apt as our society, which obviously needs to be changed, seems to be backsliding; we are less likely to share, more likely to throw a fit! The vibrant colors and bold shapes should evoke the garish effects of our mayhem on the planet as we extract, abuse, consume, and pollute. They also reference the thankfully exhaustible energy of the child, and the reserve of energy discovered by the parents during naps and cuddle time. To extend the family/environmental metaphor even further, parents/citizens must be diligent as we follow behind—cleaning up messes and teaching better habits—to preserve a happy home. The future is uncertain, and anxiety is the norm, but this work should evoke a feeling of comfort in our discomfort, hope in our hopelessness.

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
Artspace 111
June 7 – July 27, 2019
http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

A group exhibition of artists represented by Artspace111.

“@ LHUCA” provides LHUCA the opportunity to collaborate with contemporary galleries that play an important role in the regional and national art scene.

Visiting an art gallery can be a very different experience than visiting an art museum. Gallery spaces, such as Artspace111, often present intimate viewing experiences with knowledgeable staff and purchasable work. They are also typically small businesses and valuable stakeholders in the cultural fabric of a community.

Located in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, Artspace111 specializes in the exhibition of Contemporary Texas Art. In 1980, twin brothers Daniel and Dennis Blagg established Artspace111, converting the historic 1911 building into artist studios and a small gallery space in order to celebrate and display the work of local artists. In the years since, Artspace111 has developed into a celebrated and distinguished 3,000 square foot art gallery. The gallery represents a group of established Texas-based artists, frequently hosting new exhibitions that feature a wide range of style and media. Artspace111 is dedicated to making contemporary art approachable to individuals of all ages. For more visit: Artspace111.com

LHUCA is excited to be hosting an exhibition that features all the artists represented by
this dynamic Texas gallery.

Cotton and Thrift: Feed Sacks and the Fabric of American Households
June 25 – December 15, 2019

This exhibit will showcase the almost 6,000 examples of printed cotton sacks, likely the largest at a public institution, in the collection of the Museum of Texas Tech University.  This “free fabric” that held flour, sugar, chicken feed and other household staples was important to those during the difficult times of the early 20th century.  In the 1930s in an effort to fight off the competition from paper sacks, the cotton manufacturers printed their bags with pretty prints.  From this fabric Americans made clothing, quilts, curtains and toys.  Many remember going with their parents to select the bags with their favorite fabrics.  The exhibit will feature swatches, embroidered pieces, quilts, clothing and other household items made from cotton sacks and accompanies a book published by Texas Tech University Press of the same name.

Face to Face:  Self Portraits Before Selfies
Opens:  May 18, 2019

This exhibition from the collection of the Museum’s Art Division presents a wide-ranging selection of artist’s self-portraits. The exhibition includes work by thirty 20th and 21st century artists, among them Eric Avery, Thomas Hart Benton, Jim Dine, Ken Dixon, Bailey Doogan, Kenneth Hale, Peter Hurd, Luis Jimenez, Gene Kloss, Anne Noggle, Kathryn Polk, Alfred Quiroz, and Earl Staley.

How do artists represent themselves in a portrait that they create? What clothes do they wear? Do they sit up or stand? What sort of emotion do they convey? What are they doing? How old are the artists when they decided to picture themselves? Does the portrait really look like the artist? How do the artists dress for a self-portrait? Does the artist sit down or stand up for her or his portrait? Do the self-portraits convey the personality of the artists?

Discover how artists recreate themselves in their own image, their self portrait. What you we learn about artists by studying their self-portraits?

Over 30 videos, drawings, paintings, digitized sculptures, original prints and more reflect a wide variety of choices artists make to communicate who they are and, sometimes, what they look like. Come and meet them…they are waiting to meet you.

Evolution of a Museum – in Building and Purpose
February 16, 2019 opened

Evolution of a Museum – in Building and Purpose is a history of the Museum and how it has evolved as a building.  This exhibit is a part of the 90th Anniversary Celebration of the Museum.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 including mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant camels, short-faced bears, and dire wolves. This exhibition is from the Museum’s collections and reflects the local area’s distant natural history as revealed by ongoing research activities of the Museum and the Lubbock Lake Landmark.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mission Statement

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

Statement of Purpose

Established in 1929, the Museum is an educational, scientific, cultural, and research element of Texas Tech University. It is a not-for-profit institution by virtue of being a part of Texas Tech University.

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

About the Vietnam Center

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

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

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

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

Ogden Williams Collection

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

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

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

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

About the Archive

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

Douglas Pike Collection: Other Manuscripts – American Friends of Vietnam

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

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

DONATING TO THE ARCHIVE

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

RESEARCHING

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

CONTACT INFO AND HELP

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

VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS

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

 

 

VIETNAMESE AMERICAN HERITAGE PROJECT

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

TEACHERS’ RESOURCES WEB

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

VIETNAM GRAFFITI PROJECT

Richard H. MacKinnon Collection [VA066112]

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

CDEC DIGITIZATION PROJECT

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

ORAL HISTORIES AND DIGITAL MATERIALS

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

The Oral History Project

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

The Virtual Vietnam Archive

Earl R. Rhine Collection [VAN018343]

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

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

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

Michael Ray Goode Collection

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

Chris Oglesby Collection

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

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

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

For more information, contact Curtis Peoples 806.834.5777 or [email protected]

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.

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

The Life and Times of a Texas Icon, Charles Goodnight   **new**
Depicted in sketches and paintings by artist Lee Cable.

This exhibit presents a visual portrayal of many of the events in Goodnight’s life that made him a legend.

Beef Cattle Breeds History Exhibit

“The exhibit emphasizes the timeline of the industry over the past 300 years,” explained exhibit co-curator Julie Hodges, Helen DeVitt Jones Director of Education at the center. Hodges worked with Dr. Ryan Rathmann, associate professor in the Department of Animal and Food Science at Texas Tech University and holder of the John W. and Doris Jones Professorship.

“This exhibit is a unique collection of historic photographs, life-size models of cattle and interactive kiosks that will give our visitors a hands-on experience,” Hodges said. Funding for the exhibit was provided by the CH Foundation, and resources for educators will be available on the center’s website at nrhc.ttu.edu.

“While the culture that surrounds ranching has captured the hearts and minds of people from around the world, ranching at its base has always been about providing food and fiber—especially beef—for a growing population,” Hodges said.

Visitors to the exhibit will discover that Christopher Columbus brought the first cattle—Spanish Andalusian—to the Americas during his second voyage to the Caribbean Islands in 1493. In the Southwest, Spanish Andalusian cattle later became known as Texas Longhorns. Shorthorn cattle were imported to the eastern United States as early as 1783, followed by Herefords in 1817 and Angus in 1873.

McCombs Gallery

“In the Shadows: Cattle Rusting” chronicles the history of cattle rustling and turns a spotlight on cattle theft in the 21st century and what actions are being taken to curb the crime.

Cash Gallery

“Wagons That Moved History” features six wagons important to the evolution of frontier transportation.

Flores Gallery

FINE ARTS GALLERY  

SHOWTIME: Photographs of Music Legends by Watt Casey Jr.  **ends Sunday**
Organized by the Old Jail Art Center
May 31 – July 21, 2019

Join the Buddy Holly Center for an unparalleled exhibition featuring a small sampling of thousands of photographic images of influential musical artists that span the American music genres of blues, country, folk, jazz, and rock-and-roll by Watt Casey, Jr.

Many great photographers strive to capture a particular moment, atmosphere, feeling, or event. Casey’s images go beyond the mere documentation of an event or individual. They present a new dimension of understanding and appreciation for a subject. For the viewer unfamiliar with the subject, the photographs generate curiosity and an appreciation for diverse subjects. And for those vaguely and intimately familiar with the subject, the photographs act as a vehicle to take them back to a particular time or place. For both, the photographic images can be appreciated and enjoyed independently for their artistic expressions and qualities.

Buddy Holly:  Life, Legend & Legacy Exhibition

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

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

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

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

BUDDY HOLLY GALLERY

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.

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.

Charles Adams Gallery opened in November 1985 at 2109 Broadway in Lubbock, TX. In 1997, the gallery moved to the Kingsgate Center on 82nd and Quaker Avenue. In 2010, the gallery moved to 602 Avenue J in the new Arts District.

A Lubbock native, Charles Adams moved to Manhattan in 1969 and opened an art gallery at 363 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. The gallery was sold in 1980 when Charles Adams moved back to Lubbock.

In conjunction with moving to the Arts District, Mr. Adams founded the Charles Adams Studio Project. The studio project, CASP, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). The mission of CASP is to cluster artists in the Arts District by building and maintaining studio space for working artists. To date, CASP has started an artist-in-residency program by building four live/work studios at 1010 Mac Davis Lane. CASP has remodeled the old city police garage at 5th Street and Avenue J into cooperative working studios containing the Helen DeVitt Jones Print Studio, the CH Foundation Metal Studio and Foundry, and the 5&J Gallery that hosts monthly art shows. CASP has opened the Satellite Gallery, a downtown art gallery for the Texas Tech School of Art that is housed in the police garage. The CASP Print and Metals Studios are available for public use and offer classes and workshops for both beginners and professional artists. CASP has built four Work Studios at 402 Ave J and is ready to build a four additional Work Studios at that same location. There are future CASP projects that are in the works at this time and will be announced in the future.

Studio 1: J. Eric Simpson’s Monoculturing, a multi-media installation. Tackling ‘monoculturing’-the homogenization of land, plants, animals and humans, he aims to unpack how it works and to what end it serves, gaining knowledge on an industry that has shaped the South Plains.
Studio 2: Chris Marin, a painter who received an MFA from the California College of the Arts.
Studio 3: Christina Rees is the only full-time, salaried art critic in Texas. Here is some of the art she owns.
Studio 4: Pits: The Limbs of the Anxious Low-Hanging Fruit by artist Stephanie Berrie, exhibits physical manifestations of anxiety ridden “lumps” that exist within our bodies. Lumps can be associated with stones or pits inside of fruit, allowing the soft sculptures to be seen as something either inside a human body or a botanical body. Prints and plushies for sales outside!

This will mark Miguel’s concert debut in Lubbock — although he was booked at the same arena on April 8, 2000, but ended up canceling his appearance.

Recently winning both his sixth Latin Grammy and the Latin American Music Award for “Best Tour of 2018,” Mexican singer, icon, and one of the most successful artists in Latin American history, Luis Miguel, has announced 2019 North American tour dates.  Produced by Live Nation, the 18-date tour will kick off on June 1 in Phoenix, AZ and will make its stop in Lubbock July 5.

Luis Miguel has always established records without precedents, not only because of his extraordinary voice, his versatility which lands him in different genres such as pop, bolero, mariachi, big band and romantic ballads, but also because of the preparation, elegance and his true artistry, all of which has made him one of the great icons in music and a major Latin artist around the world.

Throughout his exceptional 37-year career, Luis Miguel has released 33 albums, many of which have reached gold, platinum and diamond status. He has sold over 100 million albums all over the world, has a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, and is a 6-time Grammy winner and 6-time Latin Grammy winner. The International Press Association in Las Vegas has honored him with their most prestigious award—The Galardón Diamante. After completing an extensive three and a half year-long tour, he holds the record of highest tour revenue in the history of any Latin artist. During the prestigious Viña del Mar Festival, he received the Gaviota in silver, gold and platinum, which has never been granted to any other artist. In the National Auditorium, the most important forum in Mexico, Luis Miguel shattered attendance records with 258 shows at this venue, which has yet to be surpassed to this date.  He has broken attendance records in each of his world tours and has received numerous awards, the most recent being the Latin American Music Award for Best Tour of 2018.

Craig Elliott is a singer/songwriter/guitarist based out of Lubbock, TX. Originally from Midland, Craig first picked up the guitar at age 15, then gradually began playing live performances throughout high school and college at Texas Tech. After graduating with a degree in petroleum engineering and working as an engineer for a year, he decided it was time to give music his full-time attention and move back to Lubbock. Craig recorded his first CD of original songs, “Just Keep Listening”, here in Lubbock, releasing it in November of 2011. He is currently working on his second album, from which he has released 3 singles.  At a Craig Elliott show you will hear a wide variety of blended pop, rock, and blues originals, as well as covers.

Jenni Dale Lord:  Pop/Country, Americana – Country – Alt Country
http://jennidalelord.com/
https://www.facebook.com/JDLmusic/

Jenni Dale Lord finally found a genre: Americana. Her sincere love for all music has left her writing country, rock, blues, folk… whatever she feels like. Although she is heavy handed in country music, she never wanted to label herself a country singer/songwriter. Recently she learned that Americana encompasses all the styles she loves into one genre. Now she has an answer when people ask what style of music she plays… although, truthfully, she has a style all her own.

Part Texas, part Bakersfield, part old school and new, Jenni Dale Lord Band has created a style all its own, blending elements of country, rock, and blues into one tasty emulsification.

Jenni Dale Lord rocked the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas, for over a decade, but has since returned to her roots in Lubbock to claim her place in the West Texas music scene. After years of writing music on her own, Jenni Dale rounded up a group of amazing musicians to take her songs and set them on fire. Their high-energy and heartstring-pulling show entertains audiences far and wide.

Jenni Dale Lord Band includes acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, keys, and drums, but often brings in guest players and instruments. With three successful albums and several charted radio singles, including a duet with the incomparable Joe Ely, the band is working on its fourth studio album set to release in 2020. Stay tuned!

Join us and enjoy original Texas-made music in a family-friendly environment. Summer Showcase performances, and admission to the Buddy Holly Center during performance hours, are free to the public.

All concerts are free to the public and family friendly. Patrons will enjoy live music, food trucks, cash bar, and free children’s craft activities; all in the beautiful, shaded Meadows Courtyard. No outside beverages are allowed.

Pop/Country, Americana – Country – Alt Country

Jenni Dale Lord finally found a genre: Americana. Her sincere love for all music has left her writing country, rock, blues, folk… whatever she feels like. Although she is heavy handed in country music, she never wanted to label herself a country singer/songwriter. Recently she learned that Americana encompasses all the styles she loves into one genre. Now she has an answer when people ask what style of music she plays… although, truthfully, she has a style all her own.

Part Texas, part Bakersfield, part old school and new, Jenni Dale Lord Band has created a style all its own, blending elements of country, rock, and blues into one tasty emulsification.

Jenni Dale Lord rocked the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas, for over a decade, but has since returned to her roots in Lubbock to claim her place in the West Texas music scene. After years of writing music on her own, Jenni Dale rounded up a group of amazing musicians to take her songs and set them on fire. Their high-energy and heartstring-pulling show entertains audiences far and wide.

Jenni Dale Lord Band includes acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, keys, and drums, but often brings in guest players and instruments. With three successful albums and several charted radio singles, including a duet with the incomparable Joe Ely, the band is working on its fourth studio album set to release in 2020. Stay tuned!

Art Lecture with Dr. Conrad:  Grandma Moses and Grandma Layton

511 Avenue K
Free and open to the public
www.lhuca.org

Join us for coffee and donuts as we explore the life and art of Grandma Moses and Grandma Layton.

This lecture will focus two twentieth-century American women who began their art careers later in their lives. Anna Moses, also known as Grandma Moses, began painting at the age of 78, and her paintings have become synonymous with the folk-art style in America. Achieving fame during her lifetime, Grandma Moses’s art was published in multiple magazines: her paintings adorn postage stamps and are featured in the collection of the White House. Elizabeth Layton, also known as Grandma Layton, began her art career at age 68, when she took a drawing class. Grandma Layton’s unique drawings have been widely collected in her native Kansas and also nationwide with pieces owned by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Join us as we explore the life and work of these two American women artists.

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.

The story is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser; an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play draws on the underlying strength—and love—which gives its characters the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Directed by Josh Aguirre
Stage Managed by Ronnie Miller

We are looking for a diverse group of dynamic women ages 18ish-66ish.

Available roles:

Truvy Jones – 40ish, owner of the beauty shop.
Annelle Depuy-Desoto – 19, beauty shop assistant.
Clairee Belcher – 66ish, widow of the former mayor, grande dame.
Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie – 25, prettiest girl in town.
M’Lynn Eatenton – 50ish, Shelby’s mother, socially prominent career woman.
Ouiser Boudreaux – 66ish, wealthy curmudgeon, acerbic but lovable.

Join us July 18th at the NRHC for the opening of the exhibit, The Life and Times of a Texas Icon, Charles Goodnight as depicted in sketches and paintings by artist Lee Cable.

This exhibit presents a visual portrayal of many of the events in Goodnight’s life that made him a legend.  To celebrate this exhibit renowned actor and NRHC supporter, Barry Corbin, will revive his one-man role as Charles Goodnight based on the character in the play “Charlie Goodnight’s Last Night” written by Andy Wilkinson.  Singer Andy Hedges will join Mr. Corbin to take the role of J. Evetts Haley for a conversation between the two pioneers of the West. 
Corbin will sign programs and answer questions from the audience after the half hour performance.
