About Us

Texas Tech University strives to maximize educational opportunities for its students and the communities it serves.  As part of this mission, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) works to expand the global footprint of the University by integrating international education, scholarship, and engagement with global issues, and by strengthening intercultural understanding for students, faculty, staff, and the broader community.

Housed within the beautifully designed International Cultural Center (ICC), the OIA consists of the following divisions: International Enrollment Development and Operations, International Research and Development,  International Student and Scholar Services, International Relations, and Study Abroad.

History

Built in 1996, the International Cultural Center (ICC) is a significant service center and is Texas Tech University’s signature statement of its commitment to international education. Through the divisions of the OIA, it provides a continual series of conferences, lectures, art exhibitions, and performances as well as services to faculty, staff, students, and the local community. More than 35,000 people are served through the center each year.

The Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects was awarded to the architects for the ICC design.When visiting the ICC, you will notice the 12 foot stainless steel globe just west of the building.  Inside, the building is equally beautiful. The Hall of Nations is a rotunda and features flags of nations of the world and a terrazzo floor representing the continents, oceans and seas of the world. A color mural, The Peoples of the World , and sepia murals of education and the arid lands mission of the University can be seen in the halls and gallery outside the Hall of Nations. Our World Room is featured in the center of the building and exhibits a six-foot geo-physical circulating globe by Rand McNally.

Photographic and art exhibits can be viewed in both the east and west galleries and on the walls encircling the globe in the Our World Room.

Ditched

December 6, 2019 – February 1, 2020

Ditched
Until we value all that we discard, it could be said that we are wasteful beyond measure.

“Ditched” explores the implications of our throwaway society through the examination of debris meticulously collected for one year during the drought of 2014 to 2015 from the shoreline of Eagle Mountain Lake, near Fort Worth, TX. Following in the footsteps of the archeologist, Augustus Rivers, who first insisted that all artifacts, not the just the beautiful or unique be collected and catalogued, I photographed every item found along one mile of newly exposed lakefront. These artifacts speak to me; I seek to understand them and account for each of them.

With the abundant runoff of the Spring 2015 flooding, and subsequent barrage of debris filling my immediate landscape, I began to realize the migratory nature of trash in our waterways flowing from our drainage ditches and roadways. Eagle Mountain Lake, while only 14 square miles in size, is fed by a watershed of over 850 square miles. Unlike the trash entering our oceans, this debris is trapped inland, restrained by lakes and dams. Individually, the collages reveal the variety, quantity and rate of disintegration of the materials contained in the lakefront and our fresh water supply. Collectively, they speak to our careless abandonment post gratification. Either by accidental or intentional action, we are being inundated on a massive scale by the individual fingerprints of personal choice.

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery

December 6, 2019 – February 1, 2020

A national juried exhibition calling for artists to submit monochromatic artwork. Monochrome is defined as the exploration of one color: varying in shade, tone, and tint of a single hue.

Juror: Jason Roth, Co-owner of Ro2 Art
Ro2 Art was founded in 2010 by mother-and-son partners Susan Roth Romans and Jordan Roth. This contemporary fine art gallery is located in the Cedars Neighborhood near Downtown Dallas and represents a diverse group of emerging, mid-career, and established contemporary artists. Ro2 Art has been named Dallas Observer’s “Best Art Gallery”. The gallery’s art fair program has included the Dallas Art Fair, Texas Contemporary, and Art Aspen.

SAM JOHNSON VIETNAM ARCHIVE

SAM JOHNSON VIETNAM ARCHIVE (FORMERLY THE TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY – THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE)
Southwest Collections/Special Collections Library

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.

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.

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

McKanna Gallery

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.

Cash Gallery

“Beef Cattle Breeds History Exhibit” 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.

“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.

McCombs Gallery

This exhibit features paintings from the collection of Roland and Joyce Jones, who are avid collectors of Western Art. Roland and Joyce Jones began collecting contemporary Western Art in 1971 and have accumulated one of the finest personal art collections in the country. Longtime supporters of the Bosque Art Center in Clifton, Texas, Roland and Joyce have helped many of today’s well-known artists gain recognition for their work.

Macy Gallery

The saddle-maker built his (or her) reputation on the quality of their workmanship. Each saddle was created to certain patterns and specifications, hand-tooled (stamped) and carried the maker’s mark. These saddles were prized by their owners (still are). To make a saddle gives a rider good support for hours in the saddle along with a secure seat for the times when things get real Western. A saddle is also there to provide a center for control of the horse and rider. A good saddle makes it possible for a rider to stay in balance with the animal and to ride over that animal’s center of balance.

Flores Gallery

“Sole of the Cowboy” features a variety of cowboy boots from the NRHC’s collections. The boots in this exhibit once belonged to various people who have had an influence on the culture of the American West. The exhibit features boots from Barry Corbin, Tom Lea, Ace Reid, Tio Kleberg and many more. The exhibit also explores the evolution of the cowboy boot from its origins to the present day.

Stevens Gallery

“The Model T” was not the first car that Ford designed and manufactured, but it was the fulfillment of a dream. Ford had designed and built cars that were bigger and more luxurious, but Henry Ford had long sought to make a car that was cheap, reliable and easy to own; a car that could be bought and maintained by people of modest means.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Narratives of Genocide
October 29, 2019 – through February 2020

Narratives of Modern Genocide, an exhibit curated by the Texas Tech University Honors College and the Museum of Texas Tech University with the generous support of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission.

At a moment when violence, fear, xenophobia, ethnic conflict, and inhumanity seem to invade the front page of every newspaper, website, and blog, stories that remind us of our fragility, of our ‘unbreakability’, of our innate strength and our inherent weaknesses, help us to remember that hope, faith, and compassion are weapons in these troubled times.  The narratives of the survivors of modern genocide, in their complexity and simplicity, offer us a unique opportunity to dialogue with a wider public about the privileges we enjoy, the possibilities we overlook, and the promises we make to one another.

The Narratives of Modern Genocide exhibit shares the lessons these people have brought to Texas, how they are accessing opportunity, how they are telling their tales, and how their tragic past histories are lighting new paths for their communities.

Sharing … Texas Style: Recent Art Acquisitions from the Blanton Museum of Art and The Contemporary Austin
September 22, 2019 – January 19, 2020

The Museum of Texas Tech University received twenty-eight paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and digital artworks as part of a gift-transfer from the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas, Austin. On exhibit is a selection of ten of these artworks.

In the Spring of 2018, the Museum of Texas Tech received an invitation from the Blanton Museum to take part in the distribution of the art collection of the The Contemporary Austin museum. The Contemporary (formerly the Austin Museum of Art, the Laguna Gloria Art Museum, and the ArtHouse) had arranged in 2017 to transfer ownership of approximately 700 works of art to the Blanton. After selecting some 200 artworks for their own collection, the Blanton made plans to distribute over 500 of the remaining artworks to 17 Texas museums. The Museum of Texas Tech was one of those seventeen.

The collections of The Contemporary Austin were strongest in artwork by contemporary Texas artists and, as a result, the new acquisitions fit well into our Museum’s collecting priorities that emphasize post-World War II art from the American Southwest.

This is, by no means, the first time that art-collecting museums in Texas have shared collections. Most importantly this collaboration brings attention to the good will and generosity that Texas museums have toward one another. The Museum of Texas Tech is indebted to the original donors of the artworks, The Contemporary Austin, and the Blanton Museum of Art for these important additions to our collection.

Peter S. Briggs Helen DeVitt Jones Curator of Art

Selected Writings of Thomas Paine: The Remnant Trust, Inc.
September 8, 2019 – August, 2020

A famous political theorist, revolutionary, and a Founding Father, Paine’s notable pamphlets, Common Sense and The American Crisis, were widely influential in crystalizing American attitudes and action towards independence from Britain. This display includes early editions and printings of Common Sense, The American Crisis, The Age of Reason and other selected works, as well as, critiques and rebuttals by John Quincy Adams, James Chalmers, and Richard Watson.

CHANGING WORLDS:  DINOSAURS, DIVERSITY AND DRIFTING CONTINENTS
Update Opens January 2020
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 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

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.

Tuesday, January 14th & January 21st
Ends at 7pm

To schedule an audition, please e-mail Dr. John Hollins at [email protected]

The Lubbock Chorale looks for the best vocal talent from the South Plains area. We are a community-based ensemble of about 120 voices. People interested in singing with the Chorale should have some experience singing in choral ensembles, such as high school, college or church choirs. Singers should be able to read music and possess a voice that blends well with others.

Auditions are open two times a year: main auditions in August and supplementary mid-term auditions in January. Main auditions take place in August of each year, with supplemental auditions in January. We warmly welcome inquiries about becoming a singing member of The Lubbock Chorale!

Auditions for our 44th season will be held at the TTU School of Music on Tuesday, January 14th & 21st, working backward from 7pm. Auditions for the Chorale consist of a brief solo that the applicant prepares and performs (pianist provided) and that best shows the natural qualities of one’s voice; vocalization (guided); and possibly a brief sight-reading/rhythm example or some pitch memory examples (singing back three to four pitches played on the piano). The solo can be as simple as “Happy Birthday,” “My Country ‘Tis of Thee;” or a hymn or folk song. Members may choose to not participate in any particular concert cycle, but there are rehearsal attendance requirements for each cycle.

Membership dues will be announced at the beginning of the season, are payable at the beginning of the performance year, and are non-refundable. Members may divide the cost of dues into 2 payments that will be due at the beginning of each semester. The Council President may be contacted for more information concerning financial hardship.

If you would like to schedule an audition, please e-mail Dr. John Hollins at [email protected]

Tough, funny, and charismatic, the Pilot is at the top of her game, flying for the US Air Force. When the unexpected happens, she is reassigned to remotely pilot fighter drones that bomb tactical targets in the Middle East. As she learns this new job, can she come to terms with the increasingly dehumanized and impersonal costs of modern warfare?

A powerful drama by George Brant (Elephant’s Graveyard), directed by Outpost Rep guest artist Patrick Pearson and starring company member Rachel Hirshorn!

Country hitmaker Neal McCoy has released fifteen studio albums. In 1993, Neal broke through with the back-to-back number 1 singles No Doubt About It and Wink from his platinum-certified album No Doubt About It. His commercial success continued into the late 1990s with two more platinum albums and a gold album, as well as six more Top Ten hits. A seventh Top Ten hit, Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On, came in 2005 from his self-released album That’s Life.

A new studio album, XII, arrived in 2012 – co-produced by Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. In 2013, he released Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride, Neal’s longtime friend and mentor. 2015 brought the Big Band standards CD entitled You Don’t Know Me.

Neal has been on 17 USO Tours around the world and continues to say it’s one of the achievements he’s most proud of. He is also the recipient of multiple Humanitarian awards from The Academy of Country MusicThe Country Radio Broadcasters and The Masonic Grand Lodge. In 2016, Neal again made a move to continue his patriotic values by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance “Live” on his Facebook page every morning. He’s reached millions of viewers all over the country and around the world. Currently he is at approximately 1500 days in a row and going strong. Neal still maintains a very busy touring schedule all through the year. Neal is as enthusiastic about his career as ever and encourages new and longtime fans to come out to see the band because, as he says, “No two shows are the same!”

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Sigmar Polke and Georg Baselitz
Saturday’s at LHUCA
511 Avenue K

Saturday, January 25th
11:30am – 1pm

Free and open to the public

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

Two different artists that descend from Germany, Sigmar Polke and Georg Baselitz approach painting in the traditions of Expressionism and Pop Art. Georg Baselitz is known for his paintings where he inverts the composition to create worlds that are upside down. With the majority of his paintings being figurative in nature, Baselitz explores the gestural quality of the human form. Sigmar Polke’s paintings incorporate a blend of contemporary imagery with painterly effects created through his choice of material. Varying in subject, Polke’s art is created through a wide range of ideas including innovations in materials such as meteor dust and exploring methods including chance operations.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
