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
February 1 – September 15, 2019

The Buddy Holly Center will partner with the Crossroads of Music Archive at TTU’s Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library to display artifacts and memorabilia belonging to the late Bill Griggs, a widely renowned Buddy Holly expert and collection.

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.

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 – Closes August 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Identical but Different:  Lindy Chambers & LeeLee Brazeal
August 2 – September 28, 2019

Lindy Chambers & LeeLee Brazeal, Identical but Different, duo exhibition of paintings by twin sisters from Bellville, Texas.

Lindy Chambers
Rural Texas informs my work. Here, well maintained acreage yields to an abundance of trash, mobile homes and abandoned vehicles. Stray dogs wander the yards where goats are raised for food. Existence is transient here. Cultural influences intrigue me as do the forms and colors; brightly colored mobile homes, of acid gold and deep maroon, cerulean blue with quinacridone rose. Resilience and optimism conquer meager incomes.
My work bridges realism and the abstract, the perfect foil for my subject matter.  I represent trash monochromatically unimportant to the inhabitants of my work but still an integral part of the composition. I work in oil on board or canvas.  I strive never to use the same color twice.  My work is not dictated by a color theory or particular style. Use what calls to me.

Lee Lee Brazeal
Elizabeth Brazeal who goes by Lee Lee, is an American artist.

Born an identical twin in Jackson, Tennessee in 1949.  She relates that, “the only thing there is, is a barbecue stand.” She was educated in Advertising Art and Graphic Design at Guilford Technical Institute in Greensboro, North Carolina. At 26 she went to New York City and studied at the School of Visual Arts. Although she always wanted to be a painter, her career began as an Art Director at an Advertising Agency. She remembers all of the work in those early years as a great experience, experience that earned her many awards as well as a love and appreciation of all the arts

Her time in New York taught her an awareness of life and circumstance, how they influence people and create trends that can change the world. After 10 years in advertising she put together a portfolio and acquired agents in New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston to pursue Illustration fulltime. She relocated to Houston, Texas and had a successful career in illustration with many Fortune 500 clients.

When she did have free time, she would ride her horse and paint for herself, always thinking some day she would be a painter.

Her artwork is based on things she has experienced or has been made aware of through television, reading or friends. She likes to make art based on what is current in her life, the humorous and the strange. Her time, now liberated from the everyday pressures of her former business has allowed her to be the painter she has always wanted to be. She has a very distinct artistic voice, and she will tell you “once it started talking you can’t shut it up.”

Proxemics:  Alan Disparte

The study that explains how people treat their space and other people in their proximity.

Alan Disparte is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Austin, Texas. Through a filter of gestural and psychedelic abstraction, Disparte’s practice offers a hyperbolic mix of references to memory, gender, activism, body aesthetics, nature, culture and time distortion. Disparte received his MFA in Painting and Video from San Francisco Art Institute in 2007. He has a BFA in Applied Arts from California Polytechnic University. Disparte has exhibited in Austin, Portland, San Francisco, La Jolla, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Phoenix and London.

Many people think of their personal space as the air between their body and an invisible shield or bubble, which they have formed around themselves as they navigate through their daily lives. My interest is to highlight what might otherwise be this invisible shield, represented as a cubicle. Similar to people, each cube is individually unique but shares a common physical exterior. Through each composition, there is a way to enter the central parts of a box—this pathway and internal space are what I consider to be “Intimacy.”

My hope is to capture the complexity of our relationship to self, one another, and the world through layers of our own perceptions and personal presentations.

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

The Life and Times of a Texas Icon, Charles Goodnight
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Wendy Colonna:  Roots / Southern Soul / Pop
https://www.wendycolonna.com/
https://www.facebook.com/wendycolonna/

Hometown:  San Marcos, Texas

Louisiana Native and Austin, TX resident, Wendy Colonna has a signature voice of grit-infused-honey and her songs echo swampy-southern tales of loss, mortality, joy, reclaimed innocence and celebration.

Most recently, Coca-Cola released an Ad with music written and performed by Wendy that made it to the top of AdWeek. The ad has been warmly received by critics and fans with over 175k YouTube views. Wendy has released a full length single of the song, “A Happy Song” exclusively on iTunes.

The Austin-American Statesman wrote “Wendy Colonna is not just a singer-songwriter, she’s a force of nature.” Since 2000, Wendy has released eight acclaimed studio albums, a live album and DVD. She’s produced several award winning songs for advertisements, a yoga DVD for traveling professionals and musicians, and is co-owner of Austin’s beloved intimate private venue, “Tips Concerts.”

Originally from the gulf-coast of Louisiana, Wendy has called Central Texas home since 2000. Wendy’s songs echo swampy, southern tales of loss, mortality, joy, reclaimed innocence and celebration. Her resonant, signature, grit-infused-honey voice can move from a sweet whisper to a full-on bayou-soul-shout without skipping a beat.

Wendy’s eighth studio album, No Moment but Now” was released in 2017. Tracks from “No Moment but Now” were simultaneously featured on Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” and “Breaking Singer Songwriter playlist, as well as Spotify’s “Fresh Folk” playlist. Wendy garnered critical acclaim from multiple outlets including the New York Times (describing her music as “ethereal”), received a 2016 Black Fret Major Grant and she was selected as a 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist.

In 2017, Wendy was invited to lend her uplifting songs to the Austin Women’s March where there were 60,000 in attendance. She was also invited to emcee and perform Austin’s Earth Day Festivities. Wendy has had the honor of sharing the stage with legends like Mavis Staples, Delbert McClinton, Edgar Winter and more.

Since 2014, Wendy has been writing and producing custom songs for advertisement for clients like Coca-Cola, Southwest Louisiana Visitors Bureau. The Coca-Cola song, “A Happy Song” topped AdWeek upon its debut and “My Southwest Louisiana Home” took home several ADDY awards.

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.

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!

Jimmie Vaughan
https://www.jimmievaughan.com/
https://www.facebook.com/jimmievaughanofficial/

When it comes to the blues today, there are a handful of guiding lights to make sure the music stays true to its powerful source. The sound of pleasure and pain that first sparked musicians to create such a sound is a force that can never be underestimated. The mojo must be there. For Jimmie Vaughan, he’s dedicated his life to making sure the blues not only stays alive but remains full of life and an inspiration to all who listen. It’s a spirit he holds close to him, and for over 50 years of holding the blues close inside him, Vaughan isn’t about to stop now.

John Sprott
https://www.facebook.com/john.sprott.9

John Sprott, born in Ft. Worth, TX, is a native Texan. His family moved to Lubbock in 1960, which is where John has stayed. Sprott is adding a new dimension to the often-underrated Lubbock music scene. He started from humble beginnings. His first paying gig was with his sister in 1973. He then played with several local blues and country bands until 1980, when he, Dennis Jones, and Greg Galbraight formed a band that became The Nelsons. The punkabilly group entered the MTV Basement Tapes contest in 1983 and won the semifinal round. The group was awarded $5,000.00 worth of gear. The Nelsons recorded an EP in 1984 and a CD in 1990. During that time, they opened for acts including the Culture Club and Billy Idol, and jammed with Jimmy Paige. The members of The Nelsons went their separate ways in 1991. Sprott then moved on to form the Fearless & Incomparable Texas Blues Butchers with Kevin Mackey, and Sean Frankhouser. They were later joined by Stephen Shaw, aka Elvis T. Busboy, and now do regional tours throughout Texas. Sprott has been a part of several music ventures. He has played on and co-produced D.G. Flewellyn’s House of Doom and worked on Story of a Rebel with Jeffrey Duke Patterson. Along with this, Elvis T. Busboy and The Blues Butchers have recorded two CDs, Dance Favorites and ETB II. And, in 2004, he was named as one of five Buddy Texas Tornadoes of Guitar and Bass. Recently, Sprott has released his first full-length album entitled, Ain’t Worried. When speaking to Sprott you get the impression that this is more than an album title, its simply his way of life. His life has been about playing music, and like so many great blues artists, John Sprott has remained a tried and true musician.

Ron Riley
https://www.facebook.com/ron.riley.948

Born in the dust and steeped in the oil of West Texas, Ron Riley got his first harmonica from his roughneck dad. The cowboys and oil men were his first exposure to folk blues. Influenced by harmonica greats that came to Stubbs Barbeque, like Kim Wilson and Gary Primich and recordings of Sonny Terry, Riley’s style is uniquely his own. His love for jazz and blues is evident in his highly improvisational style. With 2 albums under his belt, Riley hopes to record another soon. Look for him with the John Sprott Blues Band.

LifeGift 2nd chance run Lubbock event offers hope to those waiting for lifesaving transplants.  On this Saturday hundreds of transplant recipients, donor family members, healthcare professionals and donation advocates will gather at Mackenzie Park to run for the nearly 11,000 Texans waiting for a second chance during the Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run.  LifeGift, the local organ and tissue donation agency and a Donate Life Texas organization, is hosting the event, which is now in its 3rd year.

The Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run hosted by LifeGift honors organ, eye and tissue donors in 109 Texas counties in North, Southeast and West Texas. While celebrating the lives saved and offering hope to those still waiting, the event raises awareness of the need for organ, eye and tissue donation across the state.

The Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run became a tradition in Fort Worth 17 years ago and is now becoming an annual event in Houston. In 2017, LifeGift added Lubbock to the race circuit, bringing more hope to the communities we serve.

Instructor:  Stephanie Berrie, MFA, CASP Studio 4 Artist-in-Residence

Class Description:  Intaglio is a printmaking technique in which lines are etched or engraved into a metal plate.  The prints produced from this process usually contain fine line work and high detail.  During the printing process, the etched or engraved lines hold the ink, and the paper is embossed into the plate to pick up the ink.  This is the opposite of relief printmaking, where the ink rests on top of a carved surface and the paper is pressed onto that surface.

Students will learn how to create line etchings through utilizing hardground, etching drawing tools, and ferric chloride.  This class will teach the basics of copper etching, safe usage of acids for copper etching drawing on a hardground surface, and printing an edition of etched plates.  No previous experience is required.

The Hub City Beach Party is a fun event to raise money for Foster*A*Life which is a nonprofit agency that grants dreams to foster children in the 18 counties surrounding and including Lubbock.

The mission of Foster*A*Life is to provide otherwise unavailable assistance, services, and opportunities to children who have been placed in foster care.  The purpose is to enhance the lives of those children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned.  Foster*A*Life has fulfilled dreams for sports camps, mission trips, glasses, mascot uniforms, church trips, sibling group excursions and much more.

We have recently begun a tutoring program in order to help these children catch up with their classmates.  These children have been called the “Forgotten Children,” but Foster*A*Life makes them feel important and lets them know someone cares!

There will be many activities and games to enjoy during the evening. Another featured event is the treasure hunt called ‘The Lost Shaker of Salt’! A variety of foods and drinks will be available as well. The event will also have fun games such as a hula hoop contest, limbo contest and more!

Biography

“Thieving Birds are like a breath of fresh air for your ears and soul. These guys are destined for big things through honestly good tunes made by five great dudes.”

–Bart Crow (Recording Artist/Songwriter)

“Thieving Birds are ready to roll out the rock n’ roll with this release… Great guys and a great record. Bottom Line.”

-Justin Frazell (KFWR 95.9 The Ranch & The Red Dirt Road Radio Show)

Thieving Birds are a band from Fort Worth, Texas that was formed in September of 2010. These four friends combine Rock, Country, Roots and Blues to create a unique musical offering to their audience. The lyrics are thoughtful and strong being carried by the sultry and powerful voice of vocalist and guitarist Ace Crayton. The Rhythm section is filled out by the strong and solid drumming of Beau Brauer along with the precise Bass playing of Rody Molder. Lead Guitarist John Seidler weaves notes together to create a landscape of guitar work that will make you feel as if you’re moving across the terrain of their great state.

They released their debut, self-titled album on June 25th, 2011 and entertain and amuse audiences with their high- energy live sets. “All we want to do is play music together, to have that moment on stage when we’re all feeling the song, and to have the crowd share that moment with us… you can’t get that feeling anywhere else. That’s live music… that’s why we do it” says Crayton.

Bob Simpson
https://www.bobsimpsonmusic.com/

Bob Simpson is a Texas-based singer-songwriter with a folk style and sound of the Americana kind. A songwriter’s songwriter, his carefully crafted guitar melodies and clever lyrics take you back to a time when musicians truly cared about the content and craftsmanship of their art. It’s easy to begrudge someone when they are compared to more notable artists (most often James Taylor and Lyle Lovett) in their field. But Bob truly deserves these comparisons. He pays tribute to those that came before him while still maintaining a sound and story all his own. 

A self-taught guitar player, Simpson began writing songs as a teenager; a hobby that would last him a lifetime. After recording several demos that would introduce his body of work to various audiences, he began to record and release his self-titled debut in 2008 followed by his alt-country tinged 2013 sophomore release, Odd Man Out. His songs have been featured in several independent films and performed in some of the more well-known venues across the state of Texas.

Simpson’s third release, The Emperor’s New Moon, was released March 2019.

Biography

If there’s a performer today that embodies the oft-applied moniker of “songwriter’s songwriter” it’s Houston favorite, Matt Harlan. With songs that are already well known in many circles Harlan’s studio work is just beginning to make its mark with his debut studio release, “Tips & Compliments”.

Matt’s songwriting has been getting some recognition lately with his album debuting at #1 on the Euro Americana Charts, awards from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Billboard World Songwriting Contest, American Songwriter Magazine, the Wildflower Arts & Music Festival, Snowbird Mountain Music Festival and as a Regional New Folk winner at Kerrville.

You can also catch Matt featured alongside Texas music legends Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Nanci Griffith and others in the recent documentary, For the Sake of the Song.

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 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!

Steve Treviño is fast becoming one of the country’s hottest comics and the new voice for the 21st century Mexican American.

Finding his way from a Hispanic upbringing in a small South Texas town to living his dream in Hollywood, has infused Treviño’s comedy with a “TEX-MEX” sensibility, yet as a performer he has a uniquely American voice that transcends anything about ethnicity, making him universally relatable. Outside of being a national headliner, Treviño has made memorable appearances on The Late Late Show, Comics Unleashed and BET Comic View, among others. He also wrote on Mind of Mencia and produced and wrote on rapper Pitbull’s “La Esquina”. Treviño landed in the Nielsen Top 20, with his 1st Showtime comedy special, Grandpa Joe’s Son. His 2nd special Relatable currently airs on Netflix.

In his latest special, ‘Til Death, Treviño, America’s favorite husband, gives us a bitingly honest take on the day-to-day joy of marriage, kids and living life with your best friend.

In a time when many artists are striving to find their identity, Erick Willis is slowly leaving his mark on the scene, with a personality that is true and not just a stage persona. Taking cues from the music he was raised on Erick is blending soulful melodic lyrics, with the deep groove of roots-rock and as his lyric says, “with some of the harder stuff.” Showcasing a smooth voice with an excellent upper register, uniquely gravely at times, and always pleasant to the ear, Erick is bringing lots of soul to the mix, along with undeniably Texas inspired lyrics.

Getting his start at an early age, Erick has been no stranger to performing. Growing up in Henrietta, Erick spent countless Sunday’s in church with his grandmother learning to love the craft of singing through the choir and holiday specials Erick found his passion for music. Whether it was singing in the choir, traveling to perform in the Texasville Opry, Johnny High’s Country Music show, the Texas Gold Country Music Show, or simply talent shows, Erick never lost that drive. One might say Erick was born to perform and entertain and they would be right.

Always one to recognize where he came from, Erick credits his mother for much of his success. Being a single parent, Erick recognized the hard work and dedication his mother put into raising he and his sisters, and took away a strong work ethic and applied it to his craft. Erick’s mother also helped influence his musical tastes though her immense love of great hard-rock groups as AC/DC, Whitesnake and Journey. Not only was the rock there, but Erick’s grandfather, also a huge influence in his upbringing, introduced him to the golden age of country music.

Through a sold mix of musical styles, and a great supporting cast of family and friends, Erick began to form a genuinely unique ear for music and a solid grasp on life and how to live. As a freshman in high school, Erick took up guitar class and began to learn how to create his own blend of music. It really didn’t take long for Erick to realize he had found his calling, and so began his journey as an independent artist. From open mic nights, to talent shows, to late night recordings at a friend’s home studio, Erick quickly found himself as a performer and not just a guy who could pick out a few cords.
