https://www.britannica.com/biography/Theodore-Rousseau

This time period following the Renaissance in Europe was a period of change in the visual arts.

Art historically moved from the Baroque period which was heightened by dramatic narratives to the Rococo, where fashion and luxury became a new face in art’s expanding vocabulary.  This change was prompted by the diversity of cultural ideas that were found in different parts of the continent.

When new ideas and interpretations of faith and technology find a foothold in larger cities and states, art transforms to accompany these new ideas.  As time progresses these transformations travel from one location to another, pushing artistic concepts further.

Join us as Dr. Christian Conrad examines the art of Europe from the end of the Renaissance to the cusp of the Age of Enlightenment.

Art Lecture:  The Life and Art of Maya Lin with Christian Conrad
11:30am – 1:00pm
511 Avenue K
Free and open to the public
www.lhuca.org
http://www.mayalin.com/

Join us for coffee and donuts as we explore the Life and Art of Maya Lin (born October 5, 1959)

Best known for her design of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., Maya Lin has created architecture and sculpture since the 1980s. With the majority of her work being large-scale environmental pieces, Lin creates art with a strong concern for space. Considering herself a designer, Lin’s art often blurs the line between architecture and installation art practice.

Lin has received multiple awards, most notably the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

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

The work premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, running for 1,925 performances. The plot is based on James A. Michener’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book Tales of the South Pacific and combines elements of several of those stories.

About Charles Adams Studio Project
Charles Adams Studio Project (CASP) is a non-profit arts organization located in Lubbock, TX on the high plains of West Texas.  CASP was founded by gallerist Mr. Charles Adams with the support of a generous gift from Lubbock business owner and philanthropist Margaret Talkington.

The mission of Charles Adams Studio Project (CASP) is to serve as a cornerstone in the Lubbock Arts District through developing and sustaining a working artists’ community that actively engages the public with the arts. CASP pursues this mission in large part  through the acquisition and renovation of real property within the Lubbock Cultural Arts District.

CASP facilities are designed to provide artists with studio space, specialized equipment, and exhibition opportunities. CASP promotes an environment of creative exchange and community engagement through public workshops, demonstrations, lectures, tours, weekly studio classes, and First Friday Art Trail events, as well as through the CASP Artist-in-Residence Program, the Helen DeVitt Jones Print Studio Fellowship, and the CASP Arts Administration Fellowship.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

Project Summary: The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create site-specific murals to be placed on the exterior of the new Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center, located on the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock, TX. Construction of the facility will be completed by August 2020.

The Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center will be located at one of Texas Tech’s main intersections, directly across the street from the United Supermarkets Arena, where graduations, basketball and volleyball games, and many concerts are held. The public art at this location has an opportunity to contribute significantly to the overall aesthetic on campus. See additional resources for building renderings and selected public art locations.

 

Ideal submissions will include mosaic or other types of murals representative of Texas Tech Athletics, specifically, the basketball program. Use of photographs from Texas Tech’s sports archive for inspiration is encouraged. The selected artist will work with TTU representatives in their image selection. This piece will be outdoors and available to the community.

 

The commissioned artist(s) will create works of art that will serve as visual representations of the TTU basketball program and serve as focal points and unifying elements for the new Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center. These works should resonate with the function of the building and will be placed on exterior walls.

 

See posting on publicartist.org for marked locations on renderings. Locations 1-4 are mandatory; locations 5-7 are optional if the commissioned artist(s) feel it is within the current budget. Note that the north side of the building is designated for women’s basketball, while the south side is designated for men’s basketball. Public art can serve as indications for the functions of each side and different portions of the building through images.

Public art near this location include “Bulls” by Peter Woytuk and “Texas Rising” by Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock (see photos in additional resources).

In order to be considered, submissions must comply with the requirements outlined in this document. Objects that are mass-produced or of standard manufacture are not eligible for consideration.

 

Location: Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX

 

Budget: $281,000

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.

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

ABOUT THE CENTER

The Buddy Holly Center features 2,500 square feet of gallery space dedicated to the presentation of changing contemporary visual arts programs. These exhibitions are a continuation of a tradition of quality initiatives that were presented by the Lubbock Fine Arts Center from 1984 – 1998. With the relocation of the Fine Arts Center to the Buddy Holly Center in 1999, we continue the commitment to present challenging visual arts exhibitions that serve as a crucial resource for showcasing contemporary arts of the region and the nation.

Art is a form of communication independent of language… It is a way of manifesting human uniqueness. It is a way of reminding us that life is infinitely fragile, infinitely precious. – Norman Cousins

The Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public. The vision of the Buddy Holly Center is to discover art through music by celebrating legacy, culture and community.

Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock’s most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.

The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. 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.

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.

Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall
Matthew Bourbon and Phoebe Duckworth
February 1 – March 30, 2019
A duo exhibition of paintings. Bourbon creates half-representational, half-abstract paintings, blending two modes of representation in one image. Phoebe uses bright colors and uses the arrangements of canvases to create compositions that are a cross between Neolithic and Mid Century modern art.
http://lhuca.org/christine-devitt-exhibition-hall

Matthew Bourbon
Artist Statement
Writing statements about my art always feels limited and partial.  Words fail.  All I can say is that while I am deeply interested in the historical traditions of painting, I’m also determined to find a way to visually describe the world that is idiosyncratic. I use the act of making paintings as a way to see freshly, without all my ingrained habits set firmly in place.
Despite a lack of confidence in discreet and clear stories, I purposefully use the framework of narrative painting as a place to think about the pinball effect of interacting images and the inevitability of storytelling.  In my mind, painting is about sensitivity to all the pregnant possibilities inherent in each decision one makes as an artist.  I think there is a softness to making art–a tenderness that commingles with a ruthless desire to illuminate a vision.  Essentially, my paintings are a means for me to engage with the world–though I admit it is a rather obtuse social act.
http://www.matthewbourbon.com/

Phoebe Duckworth

Artist Statement
Having been born in the 1950’s i have a love for all things mid-century modern.
Another one of my passions is archeology and the evolution of humans and the art they created.
I use bright colors and use arrangements of the canvases to create compositions that are a cross between Neolithic and Mid-Century modern art.

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
James W. Johnson: Floral Interpretations
February 1 – March 30, 2019
http://lhuca.org/helen-devitt-jones-studio-gallery

Floral Interpretations is his latest series of large paintings that explore the color and vitality of various flowers that he has grown at some point during his life in Lubbock.

Statement:
Making art is a worthwhile human activity and that is how I chose to spend my life.

James W Johnson received an MFA from Texas Tech University in 1981 and has spent over 80,000 hours making art in Lubbock. He has created over 2,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, etching, mixed media, and furniture pieces, most of which are in public and private collections around the world.  Johnson’s art has been included in over 180 exhibitions and competitions and he was co-recipient of the 2011 Willian D, Kerns Award in the Visual Arts from LHUCA.

John F. Lott Gallery:
Lauren Lopez, I Sleep with a Stun Gun
March 1 – March 30, 2019
http://lhuca.org/john-f-lott-gallery

This exhibit explores the relationship between place and identity, and the formation of experiential terrain: places known by memory rather than a physical address.

Artist Statement:
Saturated with memory, a place is more than a physical location. To remember a place is to remember a specific span of time and the relationships between the people who occupied that place along with you. The social sciences describe this concept as experiential terrain, places identified by memory rather than location. Regardless of the changes to a location over time, the memories that people attach to them remain. Sense of place and identity overlap —where your life takes place influences who you become.
I use my own history as a case study for mapping experiential terrain, documenting places that contribute to aspects of my identity and self-awareness. I focus on places that I actively produce, which have affected me in return.  I integrate images of place with narrative elements to convey how these places are experienced and remembered.

As I question what makes up a sense of place, I work to investigate the integral function of place in our lives: we actively produce our experiential terrain as we produce places, and places affect identity, in an intimate feedback loop of human activity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Land Arts 2018 Exhibition
February 23 – April 22, 2019

This exhibit is in conjunction with the Texas Tech University College of Architecture.

Texas Tech University College of Architecture and Museum of Texas Tech University  announce  the Land Arts 2018 Exhibition.

The exhibition culminates the semester-long transdisciplinary field program Land Arts of the American West presenting documents and constructions by students Jessie DodingtonElise DupréAmanda JolleyCara Rae JovenShay MyersonElijah Olson, and Hannah Rotwein. Within the Texas Tech University College of Architecture, Land Arts is a “semester abroad in our own backyard” where architects, artists, and writers camp for fifty-four nights while traveling 6,424 miles overland to experience major land art monuments—Double Negative, Spiral Jetty, Sun Tunnels—while also visiting sites expanding our understanding of what land art might be such as pre-contact archeology of Chaco Canyon, scientific exploration at the Very Large Array, and military-industrial operations in the Great Salt Lake Desert. To negotiate the multivalent meaning of these places and shed light on strategies to aid their comprehension we invite the wisdom of field guests—writers, artists, and interpreters—to join specific portions of our journey. 2018 field guests included Center for Land Use Interpretation director Matt Coolidge, art historian Ann Reynolds, and writer Barry Lopez among many others. Land Arts hinges on the primacy of first-person experience and the realization that human-land relationships are rarely singular.


Evolution of a Museum – in Building and Purpose
Opens February 16th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As I Am       
February 9 – May 8, 2019

As I Am: Native American Artists in the Dr. Robert and Louise Arnold Collection is a selection of contemporary paintings by late 20th and 21st century Native American artists. All of the artworks were donated to the Museum of Texas Tech University Association by Dr. Robert and Louise Arnold, long-time supporters of the Museum.

https://www.depts.ttu.edu/museumttu/exhibitions/2019/as-i-am.php

 

A major theme of these artworks is the intersection of personal, cultural and historical identity. Since colonization of this continent, indigenous peoples in the United States have been systematically killed, displaced, and enslaved by dominant Europeans or European Americans. In response, Native peoples developed and advanced a complex array of adaptations in efforts to ensure their survival. Survival and maintaining—at times rebuilding—their lives and identity under duress has demanded resolution, strength, and astonishing resourcefulness. The artworks in this exhibition exemplify a small sample of their successful efforts in one arena: the universe of contemporary visual art.

“This is who I am” and “This is who we are” have been, and continue to be, important themes in contemporary Native American art.

This exhibition has been curated by Nicole Hawke as part of a practicum in the Museum of Texas Tech’s graduate program in Heritage and Museum Sciences.

The Holy Quran Pursuit
Saturday, January 12 – April 14, 2019

Drawing upon his talents as a graphic designer as well as his passion for Islamic ornamentation, arabesque design and Arabic calligraphy, Marwan Aridi created a Quran modern in its approach while preserving the integrity of its historical traditions. Aridi singularly developed and created a different design for each surah of the Quran. Together, these 114 individual designs create an encyclopedia of Islamic decorations and design traditions originating with the Emyaad and continuing to the present, embracing North African, Moorish, Andalusian, Persian, and Turkish influences. Furthering this achievement, Aridi customized an original Arabic calligraphy typestyle.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AZ<>NM<>TX — 20th and 21st CENTURY ART IN TEXAS, NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA
TALKINGTON GALLERY OF ART

The Talkington Gallery of Art combines works from the Museum’s collection with a significant donation from Margaret and J.T. Talkington, long-time Lubbock business and civic leaders. The gallery features selections from 20th and 21st Century art of the Southwestern United States. This art reflects the people and landscapes of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and portions of Colorado and Utah.

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

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

CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  –

Beef Cattle Breeds History Exhibit

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

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

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

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

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.

Information for Veterans

Reunions Attending/Attended

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.

Raiders of the Lost Archive
November 2018 – June 2019

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chris Oglesby Collection

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

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

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

CENSORED!  WALT WHITMAN’S LEAVES OF GRASS
May 1, 2014 –
A new exhibit at the SWC/SCL explores Walt Whitman’s controversial masterpiece, Leaves of Grass. From its first appearance in 1855 until Whitman’s death in 1892, this collection of poems was often the target of censors due to its frank portrayal of sensual pleasure.

The Marc Reisner Collection is now open for research.

The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Building

A gallery along the north side of the building houses permanent displays on the Southwest Collection as well as the other units of the University Library, which have offices in the facility. Those offices include the University Archives, the Archive of the Vietnam Conflict and the Library’s Rare Books Collection. Additionally, the facility is the home for editorial offices of the West Texas Historical Association and its annual yearbook.

Offices in the building open onto a rotunda beneath the third tower. The Library’s 1688 Coronelli Globe is displayed in the rotunda.

Behind the offices are the non-public areas of the facility where documents and materials are processed. The building includes an accessioning area where materials are received and logged in. From there materials, whether paper records, photographs or films/audiotapes/video tapes, go to their specific areas for processing before they are taken to the stacks or the appropriate vault for storage.

Upstairs the stacks area offers a climate-controlled environment that provides a constant temperature and humidity as well as a positive ventilation outflow which helps prevent the intrusion of bacteria or fungi which could damage valuable books and documents.

Additionally, the facility has a conservation laboratory funded by the Hoblitzelle Foundation. The Hoblitzelle Conservation Lab will provide an appropriate environment for state-of-the-art preservation of valuable and one-of-a-kind materials.

This time period following the Renaissance in Europe was a period of change in the visual arts.

Art historically moved from the Baroque period which was heightened by dramatic narratives to the Rococo, where fashion and luxury became a new face in art’s expanding vocabulary.  This change was prompted by the diversity of cultural ideas that were found in different parts of the continent.

When new ideas and interpretations of faith and technology find a foothold in larger cities and states, art transforms to accompany these new ideas.  As time progresses these transformations travel from one location to another, pushing artistic concepts further.

Join us as Dr. Christian Conrad examines the art of Europe from the end of the Renaissance to the cusp of the Age of Enlightenment.

For two decades, Kyle Cook spent the bulk of his musical life as the lead guitarist of Matchbox Twenty. He co-wrote some of the songs and invented many of the instrumental riffs that have become distinguishing parts in such radio staples as “Real World,” “Unwell” and “Bent.” But plenty of his creative persona was held in check as he collaborated in a team effort.

With Wolves, his solo debut, Cook invests so much of himself in the project that a discerning listener can get a good idea of who the guitar player really is. He’s a studied musician with an all-American Midwestern background, a guy who has a penchant for classic rock with just enough classical training to make him dangerous, and an adult whose experiences with the cycle of love and loss are extraordinarily familiar.

Wolves explores the complicated progression of heartbreak and healing while shining a light on his musical influences. The Queen-ish guitar tones in “Better This Way,” the Tom Petty-sounding foundation of “Wishing Well” and The Eagles-like harmonies in “I Would’ve Left Me Too” all point to the kinds of popular music – melodic songs with sturdy-but-simple arrangements – that influenced his ascent. The string section in the closing “Silver Lining (Opus)” harkens to the formal orchestral training he received at the start of his musical journey. Meanwhile, the resigned anger in “Would It Kill You” and the haunting loneliness in “Ghost Towns” point to the difficult personal struggle he endured with the breakup of a long-term marriage.

It’s all delivered with a fuzzy, guy-next-door vocal quality that makes Cook a bit of a rarity: a rock star whose restraint makes him completely relatable.

Special guest for this tour is Paul McDonald, whose most recent album, “Modern Hearts” was recently released and which has been getting some great press from Billboard, Relix, Pop Matters, etc. Paul was in the Top 8 on Season 10 of American Idol, has shared the stage and toured with Nikki Reed, John Mayer, Hanson, Stevie Wonder, The Revivalists, Zac Brown Band, Father John Misty. He has been a popular festival act playing Bonnaroo, SXSW, Live on the Green, Hangout Festival and performed on nationally televised shows like Good Morning America, The Today Show, NBC’s Parenthood and The Tonight Show.
