Inquiry: Department of Art and Art History Faculty Exhibition/ Assembly/ Collection/ Assortment

January 30 – February 21

The Department of Art and Art History houses four divisions of study, including Studio Art, Art History, Design, and Art Education. Although the department is divided into these disciplines, a common factor shared by all faculty members is their investment in the act of research. Inquiry shares not only each faculty member’s mode of creative expression via object making, writing, teaching, designing, or theorizing, but also serves as a footnote/reference/inspiration of what the scholar has harvested to create their work. Recognizing that visual expression is only one form of communicating creative work, Inquiry provides alternative modes of expression. Viewers/listeners/ readers are provided with insight and new avenues for accessing the work of the department’s renowned and diverse faculty.

Opening Reception

Friday, January 30 6-8pm

Free and open to the public

Honor Texas Veterans this month at the LBJ Library

July is the perfect time to honor and remember Texas veterans. The 3417 Project is an award-winning exhibit created by the Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument Committee. Each of the Texas soldiers who died in the Vietnam War is represented with a handcrafted dog tag featuring his name, rank, branch of service, home of record, and date of loss. Each tribute tag may be touched and photographed. This exhibit will be on display through July 28, when it will travel to San Antonio.

Visit the LBJ Library free of charge on July 4th!
