Detail from The Bucker, Charles M. Russell, 1904

Experience the Sid Richardson Museum, home to one of the most significant private collections of paintings of the Old West by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Personally collected by legendary Texas oilman and philanthropist Sid W. Richardson (1891-1959), these paintings capture the romance and ruggedness of the western United States in the late 1800s, a time when most Americans had little firsthand knowledge of the frontier.

Rediscovered Rendering: Will Rogers Memorial Complex Throughout the year in 1936, Texas cities and towns celebrated the Lone Star State’s 100th anniversary by hosting various events: parades, parties, performances. The main event, however, was the $25,000,000 Texas Centennial Exposition in Dallas’ Fair Park. To be a part of the expo to which the entire world’s eyes had been drawn, Fort Worth civic leaders persuaded the centennial commission to make “Cowtown” the site of the expo’s livestock exhibit. The only question was, “Where exactly in Fort Worth?” Fort Worth architects Wyatt C. Hedrick and Elmer G. Withers were solicited to design a multi-use complex. What they came up with was the Will Rogers Memorial Center. Their original illustration was only recently rediscovered. Fort Worth Police officer Jeff Bryan just happened to come across the moody 26-by-80-inch rendering while patrolling inside the Will Rogers complex some time ago. The piece was out of sight inside a maintenance room. Bryan, who’s also a collector of Western art and is fond of local architecture, “knew [the illustration] was a piece of history that we needed to keep.”

Bryan could see that the piece needed refurbishing but didn’t know where to start. He showed it to Mayor Mike Moncrief, who put Bryan in touch with the city’s public art program, Fort Worth Public Art. Managed by the Arts Council of Fort Worth & Tarrant County on behalf of the City, FWPA oversees the conception, design, construction, maintenance, and collection of public art throughout Fort Worth. “The condition in which [the illustration] was found was incredibly good,” according to Jenny Conn, public art collection manager for the Arts Council. “It could have been damaged irreparably.” No one is sure how the illustration got lost in the first place. “The city didn’t keep archives back then,” Conn said. “Someone probably just put it in an office and left it there.” After approved conservation, this piece of Fort Worth history was unveiled to the public at City Hall in early December. The illustration is “a gem,” Conn said. “Its scale is so unusual, and it’s just so darn charming.” The watercolor-and-pencil drawing depicts the proposed buildings in all of their classical-revival and Modernist glory. In addition to the coliseum, auditorium, and memorial tower, the illustration also shows two auxiliary buildings: a casino/banquet hall and a merchants’/ automobile exhibit hall. Though neither was ever realized, the rest was -and for only $1,675,000. The piece’s importance is twofold, according to Ames Fender, Hedrick’s grandson and an architect himself. “On an

architectural-drawing level, it’s incredible,” he said. “It represents the craft of drawing that’s lost and that you don’t see much anymore. It’s also showing the bravado of Fort Worth to want to host part of the Texas Centennial at the height of the Depression. ... It shows the can-do attitude of the city, to say, ‘Build it, and they will come.’” Rebecca Lawton, a curator at the Amon Carter Museum and chair of the Fort Worth Art Commission, agrees. “It’s an important drawing,” she said. “I think it speaks to the vision Fort Worth had for culture back in 1936.” Without the influence of the Will Rogers Memorial Center, Lawton said, Fort Worth’s Cultural District -the largest of its kind in the country, according to the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau -- might have never come into being or at least never become the world-class destination that it is. The illustration, according to Conn, may also positively affect the future. She hopes that, in viewing the piece, people will see the historical, cultural gem in their backyard with fresh eyes. The illustration will be on exhibit on the second floor of City Hall until early summer. A permanent home for the piece will be recommended soon. Wherever Hedrick and Withers’ drawing ends up, it will be in a place that meets certain criteria, including security, according to Conn. “But we want to put it in a place where a lot of people can see it.” For more information on the Public Art program, the Fort Worth Art Commission or the Arts Council, please visit www.artsfortworth.org and www.fwpublicart.org.

WARHOL THE L AST DECADE

February 14–May 16, 2010 Andy Warhol: The Last Decade is the first U.S. museum survey exhibition to explore the work that this seminal American artist produced during the final eight years of his life. Warhol entered a period of renewed vigor and enthusiasm in the 1980s that resulted in what was arguably the most productive period of his career. The exhibition includes approximately 50 works lent by private collections and institutions such as The Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Baltimore Museum of Art, and Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh. Along with an introduction to Warhol, it is divided into thematic sections based on significant Warhol series: abstract works; collaborations (featuring Jean-Michel Basquiat); black-and-white ads; works surrounding death and religion; self-portraits; camouflage patterns; and a concluding section of the artist’s Last Supper series.

Artistic Beginnings: Stock Show Art Show 2010 For the 20th time, this year’s Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo doubles as an exhibition venue for the remarkable entries in the 2010 “Stock Show Art Show”. Created by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as an educational program for students across the region, the Stock Show Art Show is a competition for schoolage artists designed to expand understanding of the annual livestock event. The exhibit is mounted each year in the Richardson-Bass Building at the Will Rogers Memorial Center during the run of the stock show.

All entries feature the spirit of the stock show, representing iconic images: animals, contestants, bluebonnets, families in the stands, etc. Children and teens had until December 11 to enter one work, using watercolor, oils, pastel, charcoal, ink, mixed media or any flat media. “We see several people entering year after year as their talent continues to mature” said Diane Wakefield, Marketing Creative Director for the StarTelegram. Contest coordinator Wendy Stane said that, most years, about 700 entries are judged on artistic merit, creativity, and interpretation of the theme which. The top six individual works in each of five age brackets are chosen as winners. Winning students receive $50 to $250 awards (gift cards) as well as official Stock Show ribbons.

Jeremy Anderson, 13, Fort Worth

“Today fewer and fewer children are exposed to an agricultural environment, and this is a great way to encourage young people to explore the stock show and experience the animals and the rodeo,” said Bernie Gerstlauer, former art show coordinator of ten years. The Stock Show itself is an important event in Fort Worth because it celebrates our local ranching history and the talents of the cowboy culture. Shanna Weaver, the FWSSR Publicity Manager, agrees. “There’s a link between the historical roots and artists who capture these moments.”

Andrusha Parilov Harden, 5, Colleyville

“The show is judged by art professionals whose opinions are really helpful to discern if a young person has real talent,” Gerstlauer said. “It has made

us very aware of how important this contest has become in the community especially among older students who, in their teens, are beginning to show real promise and want to take their ability seriously.” One contestant proved this to be Bret Roper, Granbury true. Jana Hill was in elementary school when she proudly entered an ink drawing of grazing ponies (but did not earn a ribbon). Later, she received her BFA in studio art and now works as the Associate Registrar at the Amon Carter Museum. “I was a precocious little artist, so it was my first lesson in losing,” Hill said. “It was an unforgettable experience.” Every year she makes sure to go see the art show, and last year she went from former contestant to judge for the event. The Art Show contest creates a way to involve many children and teens who wouldn’t otherwise participate in the Stock Show, as well as giving some young artists their first exposure to competition outside of school. Hill adds, “Studies show that students with an arts education are better readers, more involved with their community, and more likely to actually go to school.”

Musical Heritage: Guitar in World History Did you know that the guitar originated in Spain and is that country’s national instrument? In fact, the strumming of guitars appears in a variety of music genres reaching back as far as 600 years ago. Truly, stringed instruments are woven into history and culture. From India and Egypt to Spain and Mexico -classical guitar music can be heard around the world. And, it can be heard in Fort Worth classrooms. And music education programs, like the Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society’s, Guitar-On-The-Go, can ably demonstrate the way many types of music from many different cultures - here exemplified by guitar music - wind up being blended over time through cultural migration. According to FWCGS Artistic Director Chris McGuire, using music in the classroom can help connect students to geography, literature, or social studies lessons; he says the music serves to “trigger their imagination”. The “Texas Tapestry” program (for middle school 10

students in particular) traces the influences of various influences brought to Texas over a period of 500 years. French, German, and Canadian music styles - like the waltz, Allemandes, and Baroque - are all played to demonstrate the varying personalities of classical guitar. Mary Helen Ibarra, who teaches middle school French and Spanish language classes, loved the demonstration when it came to at Leonard Middle School for Hispanic Heritage Month last year. She said the program tied in perfectly with the cultural heritage theme of the month, tracing the history of guitar from India and Egypt to Spain. “They cover the history of Mexico as once part of Texas and those influences as well.” Programs like “Texas Tapestry” are beneficial not only to students, but for teachers as well. “It rejuvenates the spark of teaching for them,” Ibarra said. “With puppets, guitars, sound effects and more, the children had a blast,” Ibarra explained.

The View From Inside:

From the Private Collections of Texas: European Art, Ancient to Modern by Sonya Cisneros In the current exhibition, From the Private Collections of Texas: European Art, Ancient to Modern, the Kimbell Art Museum plays host to more than 100 of the most important European paintings and sculptures held in private collections in Texas, including works by Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, and Picasso. Bringing the exhibit to life for many visitors are dedicated volunteers like Gail Granek, a Kimbell docent since 1994. Docent-guided tours can really enhance a visitor’s museum experience. In this case, many have found the unwritten, personal stories of the art collectors the most intriguing aspect of their visit, Granek said. The collectors may have Texas in common, but “they are all so unique.” Who would imagine the motivating factor behind Margaret Batts Tobin’s purchase of Monet’s Nympheas (Water Lilies): Tobin lived in a San Antonio neighborhood known for its shifting soils. She claimed to have purchased the iconic painting in order to cover the cracks on the wall and because “one can’t repaint constantly.” That’s something only a docent could tell you. Or, who would’ve known that in Tomball, Texas, there’s a replica of Napoleon III’s Grand Salon, complete with a portrait by Thomas Gainsborough? Since the oil boom of the 1900s, Texans have collected ambitiously and with the highest discernment. Roughly half the works in the exhibition currently hang in private residences and are rarely, if ever, seen in public.

Claude Monet, Nympheas (Water Lilies), c. 1916–19, oil on canvas. Tobin Theatre Arts Fund, San Antonio, Texas

In Texas, as elsewhere, collectors come in many different stripes. This exhibition, the first comprehensive survey of private art collecting in Texas, along with the docents available to explain it, brings to light their fascinating stories. As Granek says, “If I can make an impact on one person, then I’ve met my goal.”

a great leap.

In 1949, TCU became the first college in the nation to offer a BFA major in Ballet. Since then, our School for Classical & Contemporary Dance has soared to great heights. TCU is committed to the future of fine arts professionals, offering programs in music, dance, theatre and visual art. Nurturing student artists is one more way in which TCU stays ahead of the curve.
