We will empower a new generation to follow in Buddy’s footsteps.

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.

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.

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
Inguna Gremzde, Upcoming Memories
April 5 – June 1, 2019
http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

This exhibit will guide the viewer through juxtaposition of miniature landscape paintings placed in colorful bottle tops and installation of natural elements with modern life images about lonely shoppers in shopping malls painted on transparent plastic lids, thus celebrating sense of wonder at the beauty of the natural world.

Artist’s Statement                                                  Inguna Gremzde   _ 

Gremzde’s practice explores the complex relationship between humans and nature referring to landscape as a portrait of nature. Facing the world today the landscape has become not only a portal through which to consider traditional notions of beauty and the sublime, but also a framework to examine society, identity and ecology. The exhibition conveys an ambiguity of space, place and time, whilst questioning the expanding footprint of human activity and reflects on intersection of the natural and industrial worlds.

In Gremzde’s works nature is regarded as a focus for the formation of individual and community’s identity. Growing alienation from nature, habitation in cities and dominating consumer lifestyle results in more time spent in constructed, artificial spaces monitored by surveillance cameras like shopping malls and waiting halls defined as non-places, which being real measure of our time have no identity, relations and history. The scene of nature paid close look at as opposite can open itself to reveal a secret life, a narrativity and history outside the given field of perception.

Miniature landscape paintings placed in standardized plastic bottle caps are a small world on its own without national restrictions depicting sky, fields and woods, surrounded by contemporary frame. Even not showing any trace of human presence the scenes compare contemporary consumer lifestyles with man’s historically romantic relationship with nature. These small landscapes could have been intended for looking at when seized by a vague feeling of necessity to escape from undefined urban environment. Conceptually miniature scale could be regarded as a reference to the shrinking space of unaltered nature. The work in the same time investigates the common trend of landscape being regarded as unclean and unsafe unless neatly packaged, managed, labeled and turned into commodity. Important aspect of the project was to upcycle discarded caps, attempting to reduce the amount of single-use plastic waste in the world in some way.

”13 Hours Older” consisting of 13 landscape paintings on different sized plastic lids depicts subsequent moments in time. The work references selective nature of memory with moments leaving different degrees of impact.

The warm tones captured in landscapes at sunset allow for contemplation, a sense of time passing and deep reflection. The sun setting like any other evening stars in unique theatrical performance staging a background to possibilities that might have happened in viewer’s life over the course of 13 hours and prompting a guess which moment would be picked to be relished as golden memories.

The other part of project features paintings of a figure, seeming the same person, dressed black-and-white wandering in plastic world or non-place, casting no shadow, each movement being monitored by surveillance cameras. Alone, but one of many, user of non-place is in contractual relations with it, a form of reminder being empty trolley he trundles round the supermarket. These round shaped images reminding of spy hole exploring the patterns of collective behavior and carrying a sense of dystopia masked by artificial supermarket environment are both intimate miniatures and mass-produced portraits of single figure on non-narrative shopping trip. A walk-through aisle with choices to make and decisions to take also serves as a metaphor of the life itself, for the thoughts and feelings of the human condition. The image painted on the reverse side of transparent plastic lid locks the inhabitant of the scene behind the plastic screen as opposite the directness of landscapes in brightly-coloured bottle tops.

And finally, ”Wonderful World” aims to give a glimpse of insight in biodiversity. The installation consisting of over 200 miniature abstract square compositions while preserving the examples of different species celebrates nature as an inventor of forms and textures. The work also investigates notions of possession, collection and cataloguing.

In Gremzde’s practice natural elements are often juxtaposed with plastic ready-mades from the viewpoint of materiality, also reflecting on one of a kind nature of handmade painting versus impersonality of manufactured object. The works reference their hybrid status as image, object and installation. They are mostly exhibited as a group of numerous single pieces to reveal their greatest impact through a repetitive structure on the wall. There, to a certain degree, images lose their individual character in order to expose a common formal and conceptual stand. At the same time like in any repetitive strategy the serial method boosts its single image as its formal visuality and intellectual concept get multiplied.

John F. Lott Gallery
Luminous Lookout – Dawn Black, Kathryn Hunter, Kelli Scott Kelley, and Jonathan Mayers
May 3 – June 29, 2019
http://lhuca.org/john-f-lott-gallery

Luminous Lookout, a group of four Southern Louisiana based artists, including: Dawn Black, Kathryn Hunter, Kelli Scott Kelley, and Jonathan Mayers whose curious images address the current fragility of our time, and provokes critical thought about our place in the world.

Using representational imagery, their work visualizes narratives to inspire social dialogue and critique. Teetering moral ambiguities, existential repetitions, and anthropomorphic allegories are shared threads woven throughout all the artists’ work.

Each artist employs unique materials and processes to create their work. Using a variety of collected source material, Black examines tentative systems of power and identity through watercolor on paper to visualize sociological narratives. Hunter’s laser-cut steel and paper wall installations are populated by stitched and carved anthropomorphic silhouettes, which evoke fables and reflect on our connection to the natural world. Kelley’s enigmatic narratives are painted on antique domestic linens, referencing traditional women’s handicrafts, while engaging in an ecologically conscious art making practice. The delicate feminine cloths also serve to juxtapose the fantastical imagery. Mayers collects sediments from places he visits and imbeds the material into his pieces, creating meaningful tactile and textural surfaces, where mysterious beasts, born of the artist’s familiarity with Louisiana folklore, frolic amid meticulously render Louisiana landscapes.

Luminous Lookout artists’ haunting, curious images address the current fragility of our time and provokes critical thought about our place in the world.

Martin McDonald Gallery
Aaron Hegert, Transition
April 5 – June 1, 2019
http://lhuca.org/martin-mcdonald-gallery

A series of photographs taken at DIY skateparks.

Artist Statement:
The Photographs in the Transition series were taken at DIY skateparks in Indiana and Texas over the last 5 years. The DIY skatepark, a skatepark built illegally by local skateboarders, is a phenomenon that has spread across the country and the world in the last 10 years. The title Transition has a double meaning– it is the word skaters use to refer to the part of a ramp that connects the horizontal plane to the vertical plane, and also a reference to the way these disused urban spaces change when a DIY park is built. They go from being an abandoned place to being an inhabited place, from a place with no name to place with one, from being nothing to being something. The central figure in this series is a concrete embankment (a quarter pipe) added by the skaters to a corner of the lot. I consider the material, formal, and conceptual qualities of this object and the gesture it represents emblematic of a sophisticated spatial practice at work: through a few minimal concrete additions an entirely new vision of what a place is for and what can be done there is manifested. The skaters had transitioned a commercial ruin into a space of free expression and autonomy. In these photographs I adopted the same mentality as the skaters, discarding the precepts of photographic representation the way the skaters had discarded the precepts of the urban space. In an attempt to learn from this form of creative consumption, this project is an ongoing experiment that blurs the lines between documentation and participation, where each image is a reflection of one set of circumstances and the initiation of another.

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

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.

Macy Gallery

“Buckskin and Beads: Native American Clothing and Artifacts” is an exhibit of many pieces of clothing and artifacts that were once owned by Comanche Chief Quanah Parker, given to three generations of the Burnett family (Four Sixes Ranch) and donated to the NRHC.

McKanna Gallery

“A Yard of Turkey Red: The Western Bandanna” is a traveling exhibit on loan from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. It displays flamboyant neckwear that came to identify the colorful cowboys of the West and became as integral to cowboy attire as hats, boots and spurs.

Cash Gallery

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

Flores Gallery

“Get a Grip Handgun Exhibit” features handguns from the NRHC and Museum of Texas Tech collections highlighting historically significant firearms that contributed to the evolution of handguns from the early 1800s through the early 1900’s.

Stevens Gallery

“New Additions to the Collection” features an exhibit of diverse items recently donated or added to the NRHC collection.

Burnett Gallery
“Burk Burnett Bedroom” is a permanent NRHC exhibit with items donated by Samuel Burk Burnett’s great-granddaughter, Anne W. Marion. Burnett was one of the most well-known and respected ranchers in Texas. This exhibit space duplicates one of 11 bedrooms in “the big house” at the Four Sixes headquarters.

Raiders of the Lost Archive
November 2018 – June 2019

A new exhibit showcasing rarely seen artifacts is now open at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.

Since 1925 the Southwest Collection has expanded from a single archive documenting early ranches to a member of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, which includes TTU’s University Archives; The Sowell Family Collection in Literature, Community, and the Natural World; the Crossroads of Music Archive; and an extensive Rare Books Collection. The SWC/SCL is also home to hundreds of rare maps and thousands of scholarly monographs and fictional works on Texas, the U.S., and the world. It also preserves extensive audio/visual holdings in every imaginable type of media, as well as thousands of oral histories.

The Remnant Trust, Inc., and the Vietnam Center and Archive are also housed in the SWC/SCL building. The Remnant Trust, Inc., makes available hundreds of rare manuscripts that they display freely to schools and the general public. The Vietnam Center collects and preserves the documentary record of the Vietnam War and the American Vietnam experience. It is one of the largest collections of its kind in the world.

The items on display have rarely, if ever, been exhibited. They remind us that archival and special collections are more than pieces of paper filed away in boxes. They are also the unique, tangible evidence of a person’s existence; how they lived, how they thought, and how we all remember them.

The Great War and West Texas….A Glimpse
November 2018 – June 2019
Globe Rotunda

The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library (SWC/SCL) is commemorating 100 years since the end of World War I with an exhibit titled: “The Great War and West Texas . . . A Glimpse”

World War I was originally called the “Great War,” declared at the time to be the “war to end all wars.” Beginning in Europe in summer 1914 and ending with armistice on November 11, 1918, the Great War was truly a world war; nations from six continents participated.

The SWC/SCL holds various materials related to World War I, such as the records of the 36th Division, organized from National Guard units from Texas and Oklahoma. Soldiers from this division went to France in the summer of 1918, as did Texans who served in other divisions, such as the 42nd (or Rainbow) Division.

Within the collections are various materials such as letters, booklets, postcards, photographs, and other items such as military documents. Numerous Reference Files are also available to patrons, as are newspapers and posters from the era. These collections and resources offer researchers a unique opportunity to glimpse West Texas during the Great War.

The exhibit will be on display in the SWC/SCL Globe Rotunda from November 2018 through June 2019.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What Were You Wearing Lubbock
Now through June 2, 2019

“What were you wearing, Lubbock?” is intended to combat a common rape myth that what someone is wearing causes them to be assaulted. The question “What were you wearing?” seems to be asked of every survivor when they decide to tell their story; this exhibition challenges viewers to engage with this question in an entirely new way.

This exhibition shows viewers in a powerful way that assault is never about clothing. Unfortunately, preventing sexual assault isn’t that simple.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will experience some form of contact sexual violence in their lifetime (NSVRC). Each outfit you see was curated from an anonymous story from a survivor in Lubbock.

Inspired by Mary Simmerling’s poem “What I Was Wearing” and other survivor installations, “What Were You Wearing, Lubbock?” challenges us to reflect on why we ask survivors “What were you wearing?” in the first place.

Exhibition sponsored by Texas Tech’s Risk Intervention and Safety Education Department (RISE). For more information, contact us [email protected] or 806.742.2110.
This exhibition includes graphic descriptions of sexual assault, abuse, and rape. if you are a TTU student and have an experience you want to talk about, please reach out to the crisis helpline (806.742.5555) or RISE (806.742.2110).

Lunar Embrace:  Korean Ceramics and Paintings by Tae Keun Yoo
Opens March 16, 2019 – June 16, 2019

The exhibition, Lunar Embrace: Korean Ceramics and Paintings by Tae Keun Yoo, features ceramic art and paintings by Tae Keun Yoo that are reinterpretations by one of today’s prominent ceramists in Korea. In this exhibition Yoo explores the bold and startlingly modern ceramic traditions that flourished in Korea during the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910).

Joseon ceramics went through several transformations during its five hundred-year period. Yoo’s works focus on the two major movements: Buncheong and white porcelain. In addition to ceramic and stoneware, his paintings, which are inspired by the Korean ceramic and stoneware traditions, will also be included in the exhibit.

Buncheong ware is a form of traditional Korean stoneware that was popularly produced from the late 14th to the 15th century. It is known for its natural, modest, and practical characteristics. The clay has a bluish-green tone. The surfaces of the works are coated with a white slip and decorative designs that can be produced using various techniques, which include stamping, carving, and cobalt or iron pigment painting.

Buncheong wares were exported to Japan and have influenced the development of Japanese pottery and Japanese tea ceremony traditions. The technology and elements of Buncheong has influenced artists around the work seeking insight into Asian ceramic traditions, and Buncheong continues to inspire artists to this day. The exhibit will show how the tradition is practiced by today’s artists. Yoo’s works will also showcase the different techniques and styles of Buncheong.

The Joseon white porcelains are characterized by the beauty of minimalist forms, restrained use of decoration and color, reflecting the ideals and ethics of the Korean Confucian state. In particular, the Moon jar is a type of traditional Korean white porcelain which was made during the Joseon Dynasty. The full moon shape is made by connecting two hemispherical halves together in the middle. The milky white color and slightly uneven natural shape are considered to be the highlight of the Korean esthetics and spirit. A number of Joseon Moon jars are registered as national treasures by the Korean government. The exhibit will feature the Moon jars and the paintings of Moon jars by Yoo that demonstrate the philosophy and esthetics of Korea. His Moon jars show the faithful representation of the artistic tradition. His Moon jar paintings show the adaptation and creativity inherited from this era.

Through his works Yoo responds to the difficult history of Korea, such as reunification of the two Koreas and post-colonial relationships of Japan and Korea. The ChungMa YooTaeKeun Bodumda exhibition in 2016, Make the Future with Earth exhibition in 2015, and the exhibition Unification, the Beautiful Bowl in 2014, are examples of such efforts. Using clays from Japan and Korea to make one ceramic work to wish for forgiveness of past faults and to create a positive future is another example.

Yoo is a professor of the School of Design in Kyungil University, South Korea, and owns Chung-ma Pottery Lab. He studied at Kyungil University and at Miyagi University, Japan, earning a master’s degree in traditional pottery from Aichi University, Japan.

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. 

We Used to Play That
February 9 – June 9, 2019

The Museum of Texas Tech University, in partnership with the Texas Tech Humanity Center, takes a look at the history, culture and consumer impact of video games in a new exhibition, We Use to Play That! Video Games for a Globalized World.

The exhibition features games and memorabilia from the Learning Games Initiative Research Archive at the University of Arizona. The exhibition will be open from February 9 through June 2019.

https://www.depts.ttu.edu/museumttu/exhibitions/2019/play.php

This collection was curated by Jorgelina Orfila and Francisco Ortega-Grimaldo, both of whom work in the School of Art at Tech. The exhibit will be open until June and will have a variety of different interactive events over the course of the next few months.

“This exhibition appeals to something that is an everyday experience, but also past and recent past that is already historical,” Orfila said.

Ortega-Grimaldo and Orfila said they hope seeing these pieces will give the viewer time to consider the pace at which technology is developing and how they are using it.

The exhibit also focuses on glocalization, a term referring to the union between the global and the local markets in the gaming industry, and is an examination of how gaming is affecting culture, Orfila said.

“The idea that we wanted to put on display through the games is that there is no local or global,” “It is that the local accepts the global, and uses the global, and wants to have the global.”

Ortega-Grimaldo said this type of glocalization is achieved by releasing games to a global audience, then tailoring it through editing to the particular area’s customs and the local expectations.

Orfila and Ortega-Grimaldo stated this trend is too new to determine whether or not it is beneficial to people and culture, but it can be certain that glocalization creates small communities of people who bond over a shared game regardless of where they are from or what their background is.

“We can see that, no matter where you are, you might have similar inclinations, but this is the only way you can have those connections,” Ortega-Grimaldo said.

“This exhibition at this time gives you the opportunity to think and reflect,” Orfila said. “We don’t know where it is going, but the need to have objects seems to be the compliment and the reaction to this virtualization.”

Video games are a $100 billion global industry reaching millions of people ranging from the casual player to competitive gamers.

Video game packaging, posters, postage stamps, and consoles are all included in the exhibition. The intent is to look at games that were developed primarily for a local market, those that were developed with the intent of selling them around the world and those local games that found an international audience.

In the early 1970s, the huge success of a new type of play activity called “Pong” installed the word as a synonym for video gaming. What started at bars in the San Francisco Bay area spread in a few years to thousands of households. Video games became a phenomenon that spread around the world like wildfire. Games, controllers, accessories, paraphernalia, and game culture defined the late 20th and the 21st centuries.

Games are instances of play. French theoretician Roger Caillois characterized play as a free but circumscribed activity whose results are unknown and does not have a practical goal. Rules govern play, and those who engage in it are aware of not being acting for real.

Video games shape many people’s everyday daily routines, fantasies, and world-view. Virtual game characters and icons have spawned clothing, accessories, vocabulary, expressions, and patterns of behavior that have become central to our contemporary culture. If in the past video games’ plots took elements from films and literature, the flow has reversed. Today, video games have transformed our way to tell stories as they reflect and address social issues.

Originally developed in California, U.S, and Japan, the video game industry is today one of the fastest growing sectors in U.S economy. It has been and is a major driver of globalization. First distributed by retail stores, in our digital age any coder can create their own video game, there are as many popular games online as there are in hard copy formats, and political differences or international laws have not stemmed participation in massive multiplayer online games or exchanges among international games developers.

In our technologically based media age rapidly and video game collections reflect the history of recent technology. Young people are already nostalgic about games they played when they were kids and are now considered history. The objects in this exhibition span from the early 1970s to our current decade and show the evolution of the technology, characters, and the culture that evolved around them.

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.

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 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.

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.

Will of the Wind Productions is proud to present the World Premiere Production of a new original play by Sylvia Ashby.

Directed by Richard Privitt, Orphan Train will be staged at the Firehouse Theatre inside LHUCA.

A brief synopsis of Orphan Train:

In the late 1890’s, the Orphan Train arrives in a small town in North Central Texas, its last stop on this Western trip. On board are three leftovers: These young teens, New York City waifs, were not among the several dozen orphans already selected during the train’s earlier stops. Katrinka Pavelka and brother Anton are European immigrant orphans who desperately want to remain together; Mike Macys is a newsboy who lived on the streets of the city.

Curious townsfolk arrive at the station to check out the Orphan Train, including a teacher, an elderly widow, a bachelor cowboy, a farm couple, and several grammar school students. Will these three Train Riders find homes in Plainsville? Will they be treasured–or exploited–or abused? Will they be accepted into the community? Can they adjust to a new life on the “lonesome prairie”? With humor and heart, ORPHAN TRAIN provides answers.

Conceived and Directed by Randall Rapstine (Fine Arts Ph.D. student at Texas Tech University)

The Texas Tech University School of Theatre & Dance, housed within the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts, will present “Canterville” at 7:30 p.m. from April 29 to May 5. The show begins in the Maedgen Theatre lobby. The audience will then travel to a home in the Tech Terrace neighborhood for the remainder of the performance.

 

“Canterville” is a site-specific, immersive theater experience inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic comic ghost story. Set in a haunted Victorian mansion, Chase, young Virginia Otis and her family encounter centuries-old specter Sir Simon de Canterville, an arrogant ham of a ghost who leads them on a comic, yet terrifying investigation of gender, sexuality and horror. Combining physical theater, dance, music and the thrills of a haunted house, the performance will immerse audiences into a provocative, scary, beautiful and fun journey that explores the transformative power of art.

 

“It is an experience that combines physical storytelling and movement in a way audiences have not seen in Lubbock,” said Randall Rapstine, the director of “Canterville.” “We also have a beautifully diverse cast that works seamlessly to tell a story. The play’s ‘create your own adventure’ style stays true to the themes of the Wilde source material, and it all occurs in the home of our Canterville angel, Melissa Grimes, without whom this production would not have happened.”

 

There are a limited number of tickets remaining for the performance. Tickets are $15 for individuals and $5 for students with a valid student ID. There are three preview performances from April 26-28, for students with a valid Texas Tech ID. More information is available at (806) 742-3603 or on the School of Theatre & Dance website.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”

The day of the races you will check in and receive your T-shirt, race bib, and sign a release form.

If you are registering you do not need to purchase a shirt, it is included. The shirt option is only for those who wish to purchase a shirt but not register. The last day to purchase a shirt is April 26th. After this day you are not guaranteed a shirt.

CASA trains community volunteers who serve as advocates for children in the foster care system. A child with a CASA is half as likely to spend time in long-term foster care. And when that child leaves the system, he or she is much more likely to stay out of foster care. Permanently. In 2018, 314 area volunteers donated more than 8,350 advocacy hours to 628 foster children.

Join us for a new Saturday at LHUCA event!

Poetry, like fiction, drama, and painting, captures the ephemerality of a moment, the intensity of an emotion, the complexity of a thought, the beauty of an image, the exquisiteness of the sublime, and the musicality and movement of language. It offers to readers and writers alike a glimpse into the depths and passion of the human spirit while helping us to seek out, explore, and express truths of the human condition through humor, poignancy, irony, curiosity, introspection, at times clarity, and still at others, through opacity and mystery.

Will of the Wind Productions is proud to present the World Premiere Production of a new original play by Sylvia Ashby!

Directed by Richard Privitt, Orphan Train will be staged at the beautiful Firehouse Theatre inside LHUCA.

A brief synopsis of Orphan Train:

In the late 1890’s, the Orphan Train arrives in a small town in North Central Texas, its last stop on this Western trip. On board are three leftovers: These young teens, New York City waifs, were not among the several dozen orphans already selected during the train’s earlier stops. Katrinka Pavelka and brother Anton are European immigrant orphans who desperately want to remain together; Mike Macys is a newsboy who lived on the streets of the city.

Curious townsfolk arrive at the station to check out the Orphan Train, including a teacher, an elderly widow, a bachelor cowboy, a farm couple, and several grammar school students. Will these three Train Riders find homes in Plainsville? Will they be treasured–or exploited–or abused? Will they be accepted into the community? Can they adjust to a new life on the “lonesome prairie”? With humor and heart, ORPHAN TRAIN provides answers.

9 to 5 The Musical is based on the 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970’s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy—giving their boss the boot and take control of the company that had always kept them down.

Join us for coffee and donuts as Christian Conrad discusses the Life and the Art of Berthe Morisot.

Berthe Morisot (1841 – 1895)

Berthe Morisot was a part of the Impressionist Art movement, working in France during the late nineteenth century. First selected for the Paris salon at the age of 23, Morisot began showing her work in the Second Impressionist exhibition in 1874. Working closely with the artists of the time, Morisot would marry Edouard Manet, brother of the famous artist. Morisot is a fundamental part of the Impressionist movement, is widely collected throughout the world, and is currently featured in a major exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.

The concert and fundraiser aims to raise money for a memorial scholarship and “to stress the importance of a college education and bring awareness to organ donation.” 

Rascal – gives you this mental image of a huge ornery grin doesn’t it? Well that describes him perfectly. With gorgeous blue eyes, usually a stain or two and dog hair (or pig hair) to boot. You never saw him without his boots, cars or cowboy hat. He was a vivacious little boy, who didn’t realize he was NOT 10ft tall and bullet proof. He had a way about him that he always left you smiling. Brock “Rascal” Riemath was a whirlwind in all of our lives and everyone knew when he was around. He loved to hang with his potbellied pig “Snarkle” -self named of course – and then go tear up the dirt with big brother “thumper” riding bulls and clinging to chutes. He had it made when it came to mama Kia – that’s for sure. He had everyone wrapped around that ornery stinking finger. You never expect to lose such a vibrant soul. But unexpectedly we lost him in June 1997. He stepped from the back of our pick up – trying to get his baseball cap. After the amazing work of EMT’s he was Air lifted to UMC, they were able to stabilize him and began recovery. They were getting ready to release him for home. The final day he sat up and coughed, he laid back and the excess fluid filled his brain stem and it herniated, he was gone. In a blur of days, we held tight as a family. Thankful for Life gift, blessing his wishes, rascal saved 9 people by donating his organs. Knowing he saved 9 people is beyond comparable to a single word. His spirit lives on. In the coming years we closely worked with Life Gift and local groups to spread the word for organ donation. We are blessed to say that 17 years later – we still have 8 of the 9 living! They carry him as well as we do- So now any time we hear George straits “carrying your love with me” or see a green ribbon – we know he’s with us. WE want to use this as a blessing and extra encouragement for a student that truly needs the help to gain additional education. In my family’s opinion that allows his spirit to cross that finish line and gain that accomplishment as well. We’ve been blessed to see that milestone crossed!

Registration for the scholarship opens after the event. Students who are interested in the scholarship contest can ask for the email and send their registration, information forms and essay. Search Brock “Rascal” Riemath Memorial Scholarship on Facebook.

We’ve had numerous requests to bring back Neil Diamond’s music to one of our productions. This show will feature Neil’s hit songs and mix in The Eagles for another cutting-edge West Texas tribute show. The harmony and incredible solo singing of Brandon Gwinn, Jason Fellers, Sheena Fadeyi, Avery Guyear and Haley Simpson can’t be beat. The West Texas renditions of these songs will take you to your knees and are bound to please.

https://www.lubbockchorale.org/concert/tickets.aspx

The Chorale and soloists will be performing Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece The Creation.  The Creation is an oratorio that depicts and celebrates the creation of the world as described in the book of Genesis.  The libretto was written by Gottfried van Swieten.  The work is structured in three parts and scored for soprano, tenor and bass soloists, chorus and a symphonic orchestra.  In parts I and II, the soloists represent the archangels Raphael (bass), Uriel (tenor) and Gabriel (soprano).  In part III, the bass and soprano soloists represent Adam and Eve.  The first public performance was held in Vienna at the old Burgtheater on 19 March 1799.  The oratorio was published with the text in German and English in 1800.  Haydn was inspired to write a large oratorio during his visits to England in 1791-1792 and 1794-1795, when he heard oratorios of George Frideric Handel performed by large forces.

Marty Stuart is a five-time Grammy winner, platinum recording artist, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Americana Music Association, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, photographer, musician, and songwriter. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band in the ’80s, and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s. With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.

While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.
