EXHIBITS & PROGRAMS
The current exhibition in the Hawn Gallery
Texas Women Printmakers, 1930-1950 and
features prints from the Bill and Mary Cheek Family Collection. The
following comes from the introductory text panel of the exhibition, written
by the lender, Bill Cheek"
"This exhibition includes work by six women who were members of the Texas Printmakers, which existed from 1940-1965: Lorene David, Bess Hubbard, Lucille Jeffries, Lura Ann Taylor, Verda Ligon, and Vera Wise. This group was created after a similar men's group, the Lone Star Printmakers (which had been formed in 1937) denied membership to women. The Texas Printmakers developed exhibitions and sent them on circuits to museums, libraries and colleges throughout the U.S. and continued long after the Lone Star Printmakers dissolved in 1942. An overview exhibition of the Texas Printmakers was held at the SMU Meadows Museum in 1990."
The exhibition runs from May 13 through August 9, 2002, and the Hawn Gallery is located on the first floor of the Hamon Library.
|The newest exhibition in Bridwell Library is Written On/ PRINTED ON and highlights the evolution of the written to the printed word. The exhibition, which runs from June 7, 2000 through August 2, 2002, is housed in the Elizabeth Prothro Gallery and was curated by the former director of Bridwell Library, Decherd Turner. More information about the exhibition.....|
The exhibit, Libraries and Leaders: Some Donors to SMU Libraries, 1915-2002, runs until June 30, 2002 and is available for viewing from 8:30-5:00, Monday through Friday, in DeGolyer Library. In conjunction with the just-finished capital campaign, DeGolyer Library has mounted a retrospective exhibit highlighting the contributions of well-known (and not so well-known) individuals to SMU libraries over the years. Methodist ministers, early faculty members, the Fondren family, the DeGolyer family, Stanley Marcus, and many others have helped shaped the course of SMU's library development. We celebrate their achievements and anticipate more good things in the future. Over 80 items are on display, from an edition of Hippocrates (1537) to a photo of Stanley Marcus and Lyndon Johnson (1966). For more information, contact Russell Martin at x3231.
|HATS OFF TO THESE FUTURE
LIBRARIANS! Several children of CUL Staff Members are May 2002 graduates:
|CUL CELEBRITY SIGHTING!
Judy Searles was featured on the Oprah show recently during a trip to Chicago with her daughter and some friends. The episode was broadcast live and featured a cooking demonstration by Art Smith, a notable culinary expert and personal chef to Oprah Winfrey. Our Judy managed to be seated on the front row and received a copy of Mr. Smith's newest cookbook as well as a fantastic goodie bag from Sur la Table. So, if you see Judy in dark glasses, ducking the paparazzi, congratulate her on her recent brush with celebrity-hood!
