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.

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.

Not-So-Lone Star Studios: A Gathering of Texas Makers
September 15, 2019 – December 8, 2019

Not-So-Lone Star Studios: A Gathering of Texas Makers, highlights work from 34 artists and makers currently residing in Texas whose creative practices engage in the conceptual dialogue of contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing. As a rule, artists have been invited through a word-of-mouth selection process. In this way, a survey of makers has been collected organically through a series of personal recommendations further narrowed by standards of conceptual integrity.

In conjunction with the exhibition, The Museum of Texas Tech will host the 2019 Texas Metals Symposium on October 12, an event open to the Public.

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

In continuation of our partnership with The Remnant Trust, Inc., a selection of the influential writings of Thomas Paine are presented. 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.

Evolution of a Museum – in Building and Purpose
July 14, 2019 – December 10, 2019

The Museum of Texas Tech University celebrates its 90th anniversary during 2019.  Join us through the year as we show off the Museum’s history and some of our extraordinary collections.

The exhibition “Evolution of a Museum:  In Building and Purpose” traces the history and development of the museum from its inception in 1929 when a group of citizens interested in preserving the history and culture of the region formed the Plains Museum Society.

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.

Chess:  The Original Game of Thrones
May 11, 2019 – December 1, 2019

In the exhibition Chess:  The original Game of Thrones, the Museum of TTU gives you a look at the centuries-long history of the game, as well as descriptions of the chess pieces and the popularity of the game from its beginnings through today.

 

LONG TERM EXHIBITIONS

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

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

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

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

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

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

AZ<>NM<>TX — 20th and 21st CENTURY ART IN TEXAS, NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA
TALKINGTON GALLERY OF ART
The Talkington Gallery of Art combines works from the Museum’s collection with a significant donation from Margaret and J.T. Talkington, long-time Lubbock business and civic leaders. The gallery features selections from 20th and 21st Century art of the Southwestern United States. This art reflects the people and landscapes of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and portions of Colorado and Utah.

No particular landscape represents the Southwest, and no singular art style defines it. The art works on exhibit sample many divergent paths that artists from the Southwest have followed, from realism to romanticism, from impressionism to expressionism, from minimalism to conceptualism, and more.

Among the artists in the exhibition are Georgia O’Keeffe, Fremont Ellis, Beatrice Mandelman, Gene Kloss, Edward Curtis, Mark Klett, John Sloan, Dorothy Brett, and William Lester.

THE ICE AGE ON THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
This gallery features prehistoric megafauna from the Pleistocene Period including mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant camels, short-faced bears, and dire wolves. This exhibition is from the Museum’s collections and reflects the local area’s distant natural history as revealed by ongoing research activities of the Museum and the Lubbock Lake Landmark.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mission Statement

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

Statement of Purpose

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

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

About the Vietnam Center

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

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

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

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

Ogden Williams Collection

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

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

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

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

About the Archive

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

Douglas Pike Collection: Other Manuscripts – American Friends of Vietnam

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

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

DONATING TO THE ARCHIVE

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

RESEARCHING

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

CONTACT INFO AND HELP

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

VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS

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

 

 

VIETNAMESE AMERICAN HERITAGE PROJECT

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

TEACHERS’ RESOURCES WEB

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

VIETNAM GRAFFITI PROJECT

Richard H. MacKinnon Collection [VA066112]

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

CDEC DIGITIZATION PROJECT

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

ORAL HISTORIES AND DIGITAL MATERIALS

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

The Oral History Project

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

The Virtual Vietnam Archive

Earl R. Rhine Collection [VAN018343]

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

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

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

Michael Ray Goode Collection

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

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

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.

Cande Aguilar
October 4 – November 30, 2019

Born and raised in Brownsville, Texas, Cande Aguilar is a self-taught artist who reflects on border culture through his barrioPOP distinctive style.

At the young age of 10, Aguilar embarked on a music career as a musician and at the age of 13 recorded his first album. As a musician, he toured the United States and received numerous awards. Life on the road allowed Aguilar to mature and gain inspiration from diverse cultures. In 1999 he produced his first oil painting, and has since accumulated an impressive body of work. In this short period, he has shown his passion and dedication for the arts.

Aguilar defines his barrioPOP distinctive style as an amalgamation sprung by characters, colors and street phenomena.

“barrioPOP is an amalgamation sprung by characters, colors and street phenomena that is my life immersed in popular culture; expressed through multimedia such as painting, image transfer, digital collage, photography, video and music.”

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery

Armando Sebastian
The Garden of Good & Evil
October 4 – November 30, 2019

Armando Sebastian’s paintings are deeply rooted in Mexican folk art and narratives of fantasy and surrealism like those found in writings by Gabriel García Márquez and Paulo Coelho and the naïve and primitive painting styles of artists like Frida Kahlo and Henri Rousseau. Armando uses the term magical realism.
Armando lives and works in Dallas, Texas

Artist Statement:
My first trip out of my home town was to Mexico City. when I was 5 years old, there are a few things that I remember very clearly: our visit to Teotihuacan; the two pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, with stone carvings of snakes and humans all over the place, people praying, people picnicking, people selling all kinds of things; calacas, little Dioses (Aztec Idols), hats and Mexican candies. The Cathedral …the magnificence of this building, the smell of old wood, the silence, the sense of the reverence and devotion, the beauty of the saints and angels in the retablo of the central altar. I also remember the grand Zocalo, the Alameda Central, and all the wonderful structures built by Mexican hands while driving around the city in my grandpa’s old truck listening to Trio Ballads. This was an enchanted world to me, a unique mixture of the Aztec Kingdom and the Spaniards.

Once when we were walking in downtown Mexico City I felt a mysterious presence in the air, I remember being so excited because my mom was always telling me tales about almost everything, I think that stimulated my imagination and all those things made me fall in love with my culture and the ancient Mexico.

Since then I have felt a strong connection with my people, and I draw and paint using bright colors inspired by Mexican folk art, and the human body. Rooted in autobiographical details from my childhood and adolescence you’ll find yourself into the atmosphere of human pain and vulnerability reminiscent of the ex-voto paintings. My work also includes paintings with reference to poets, music icons and symbols amid vibrant landscapes.  In a world of child-like fascination with elements like the folds of cloth, texture of insect wings, wallpaper stains, or color of bird feathers, rooms transformed into tropical gardens in an enigmatic way I like to lead the viewer to explore questions of identity and gender. Perhaps my art can most closely identify with the genre of magical realism.

John F. Lott Gallery

Alejandro Macias
A Bridge Too Close
October 4 – November 30, 2019

Artist Statement:
My most recent work stems from the division represented by the Rio Grande River, and how the history of this boundary creates an internal conflict with my intimate and distinctive voice. The Rio Grande Valley remains a unique place for its fusion of Mexican and American culture. Coming from this large stretch of marginalized region, I feel divided by these two nations while simultaneously composed by them. This mirrors my personal engagement with traditional rendering, and my challenge with contemporary drawing and painting.

Much of my approach is a mixture of conventional, representational, and abstract techniques. This acts as a metaphor for my upbringing in a remote, and yet culturally rich, area in the United States. Through my artistic process, I seek to gain a better understanding of my ethnic background while framing and contextualizing the individual qualities of the people around me.

Ultimately, my artistic endeavors gravitate and rise to reflect my inner struggle, social and political trepidations, pop culture, and the perilous dichotomy of my identity and culture.

Martin McDonald Gallery

Carmen Winant
Pictures of Women Working
October 4 – November 30, 2019

A half-century after Betty Friedan’s identification of “the problem that has no name” galvanized a generation of American women to enter the workforce in the name of liberation, work still occupies a complicated cultural, political, and social position for women. It continues to be debated (lean in/opt out), politicized (as cracks appear in the glass ceiling for the highest office in the land), and commodified (Ivanka Trump’s marketing slogan for her fashion line is #WomenWhoWork). Collaging more than a thousand original found images of women beautifying, nursing children, having sex, protesting, practicing self-defense, and making art, Carmen Winant deconstructs what constitutes productive activity for women in Pictures of Women Working.

Drawing largely on images from the era of second-wave feminism, the collages—backgrounded by topical newspaper broadsheets and running the length of the gallery as a single piece—may initially present a picture of halcyon days marked by achievements like Title IX and Roe v. Wade. But the neat reading of enfranchisement begins to fray upon closer scrutiny of the images, which often depict women doing secretarial work, performing their sexual objectification as work, or coming under physical attack. Found images of Qandeel Baloch and Mothers of the Movement appear alongside Jane Fonda workout stills and photographs of female painters in the studio, calling into question the parallel functions and consequences of realizing oneself in the world as a working woman.

The problems of representation, self-styled and filtered through the male gaze, go beyond the borders of the image to what is only hinted at through pictures. Second-wave feminism’s focus on work as economic independence hung on a utopian vision of equality largely representing the interests of bourgeois white women. Non-middle class women—often of color—who were already in the workforce out of necessity found their voices further muted.

The complex relationship of women and work grows ever more convoluted and fraught the longer we look at Pictures of Women Working. Should Carmen’s work be viewed as a woman’s work? As a feminist’s work? How should other vectors of her identity—as a straight white American woman—figure in? To what traditions and art historical lineages does it belong?

For Carmen herself, the nature and contours of work recently changed with the birth of Carlo, for whom she shares the work of childrearing with her partner, and fellow artist, Luke Stettner. As she negotiates her work as an artist, writer, professor, and mother, the personal is artistic and political. Her work proposes feminism can be more than blinders but a prism through which new shades and nuances of understanding can emerge.

Debora Hunter: Shooting Blanks at the NRA
SRO Photo Gallery, October 03 – November 10, 2019

Shooting Blanks at the NRA is a photographic series that presents sniper-like shootings of participants of the 2018 National Convention in Dallas. To explore the intersection of gun rights advocacy and freedom of expression, Debora Hunter has used the gunsight of the camera’s viewfinder to “shoot” photographs as metaphorical stand-ins for the 58 concertgoers on the Las Vegas Strip, the 5 police officers in downtown Dallas, the 9 congregants in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the 17 students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and other recent mass shootings.

Hunter earned a BA in English literature from Northwestern University and an MFA in photography from Rhode Island School of Design. She is Professor Emerita of the Meadows School of Art, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas.

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.

Tom Chambers Photography Exhibit “Windmills of a Mind’s Eye”
This will be a permanent exhibit at the Museum
Opened March 16, 2019
This exhibition by Tom R. Chambers comprises the Collection at the American Windmill Museum, Lubbock, Texas.

Chambers takes great delight in this project since he grew up with windmills (wind pumps) and particularly the one that his grandfather used to pump water for his herd of cattle. The signature/logo that is seen bottom-right for each photograph incorporates an image of his grandfather’s windmill (wind pump).

The prints are 11″X14″ overall and framed.

A Windmill Museum for the American Style Water Pumping Windmill and Related Exhibits on Wind Electricity. The purpose of the American Windmill Museum, as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, is to interpret the relations of humans, the environment and technology through the medium of a museum of wind power history.   More than 100 windmills displayed inside, more than 50 outside and a 6,000 square foot mural depicting the history of windmills.  Years represented by the windmills range from one manufactured in 1867 to two modern wind turbines for generation of electricity.

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.

The Humanities Center of Texas Tech and Landmark Arts in the School of Art – Texas Tech University
“Justice” – Call for Entries
Now through December 15, 2019

Call for Original Art Work from TTU Graduate Students – “Justice”

The Humanities Center of Texas Tech and Landmark Arts in the School of Art are calling for original visual art from TTU graduate students, for a juried exhibition on the Humanities Center’s 2019-2020 theme: “Justice.” The exhibition will open on February 7, 2020 at the School of Art Satellite Gallery at CASP in the downtown arts district during the First Friday Art Trail. An awards reception will be held a week later; two works will be selected by a jury of TTU faculty for first- and second-place prizes of $750 and $250 dollars, respectively. Any graduate student currently enrolled at Texas Tech is eligible to submit to this call.

To speak of “Justice” necessarily provokes humanities scholarship’s broad goal of making sense of what it means to be human, since acts of injustice so often denigrate the humanity at the heart of that academic inquiry. In line with the Humanities Center’s 2019-2020 theme, we are seeking work that exposes or archives historical or ongoing acts of injustice, or imagines redress for those problems.

Among the topics for art presentation in which we are particularly interested are:

• mass incarceration and the prison-industrial complex;
• restorative justice versus punitive justice;
• the handling/mishandling of mental health matters by the criminal justice system;
• the detention of immigrants and the separation of immigrant families;
• inequalities in the distribution of rights for citizens across different identities;
• the human cost of environmental injustices;
• the ongoing economic and/or medical effects of systemic racism, homophobia and transphobia, and gender inequality.

Art media can include 2D work in painting, photography, printmaking, drawing, video, and 3D work in sculpture, ceramics, jewelry/metals, and installation. 2D work may not exceed 60×60 inches in size. 3D work may not exceed a 48×48 inch footprint with a maximum height of 96 inches.

Graduate students may submit one work for this exhibition competition. Please complete the Google Docs Submission Form found at this link: Justice Submission Form. You will need a gmail account to be able to access and complete the form.

The jury for the two prizes will be:
• Dr. Allison Whitney, Department of English
• Dr. Stacey Jocoy, School of Music
• Diane Warner, Texas Tech Libraries

Deadline for submissions is December 15, 2019. For any further questions, please email Dr. Michael Borshuk, Interim Director of the Humanities Center at [email protected] or Joe Arredondo, Director of Landmark Arts at [email protected].

Directed by Jonathan Marks

From one of the world’s masters of comedy, Moliere, a special sort of play devised for a very special occasion: a blend of music, dance, and theatre to lift the spirits of energy and joy.
Doctor Love is a tale of deceit, imposture, and true love at first sight, opposing old ideas and authoritarian postures with the undeniable power of youthful passion.

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

Julian Schnabel (born October 26, 1951)

Julian Schnabel is best known for his large-scale paintings that incorporate materials into the canvas surface. Using broken plates, wax, and animal antlers, his compositions often test the limits of what a painting can be. Schnabel was born in New York, but he spent a large portion of his younger life in Brownsville, Texas, and he graduated from the University of Houston. Highly prolific, in addition to his visual art career Schnabel works as a film director making such films as Basquiat (1996) and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007).

Join us for coffee and donuts!
