“This is feel-good party jazz, harking back to the 20’s and 30’s.  It’s brassy, stomp your feet and dance music, and it’s got the raw, uplifting vibe of a New Orleans street parade.”  The SF Weekly.  Grammy-nominated for Best Instrumental Jazz Album on “My Favorite Things”.

 

“Miller and his bandmates have taken their unique show-an upbeat and peppy combination of jazz covers and originals-to festivals and venues across the nation.” – The Observer
A native of Los Angeles, Sammy Miller has become known for his unique maturity and relentless focus on making music that “feels good” as a drummer, singer and bandleader. Upon completing his Master’s at The Juilliard School, Sammy formed his ensemble, Sammy Miller and The Congregation. As a band they are focused on sharing the power of community through their music—joyful jazz. While independently the band members have performed/recorded with notable artist including Wynton Marsalis, O.A.R, Iron and Wine, and Lee Fields at venues including The White House, Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together and create globally conscious music with the intention to spread joy throughout the world. Outreach education has been offered through Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz for Young People program where the band has performed over 100 educational concerts at public schools in New York City, Los Angeles, and Ohio. Through The Juilliard School and The Monk Institute they have presented an additional 50 educational concerts.

The Zeppelin Project does what very few Led Zeppelin tribute bands do: perform accurate, LIVE versions of the beloved studio recordings with an attention to detail that honors Zeppelin’s musical legacy. Comprised of professional musicians and veterans of the southwest music scene, its members have played in some of the finest venues all over the country. The Dallas-based band is a true tribute with its members performing their Zeppelin counterparts, both visually as well as musically. The band was formed from members of several successful Zeppelin tributes, so each member has years of experience performing Led Zeppelin accurately with an attention to detail unmatched by other tributes.

Special opening act – Doors Hotel – recreates the greatest moments from the legendary ’60s group The Doors.

When you think of the all-time greatest male artists in country music, there is no question three names pop up: Merle Haggard, George Strait and George Jones. These three singers have influenced the genre more than any other group of artists combined. Now, three regional performers have come together to pay tribute honoring these country music icons: Will Bannister, Danny Cadra – and introducing future star Hayden Spears – for his Cactus debut.  These three performers will be backed by the The Rhythm Machine with special guest Megan Poppe on fiddle and West Texas legend Steve Williams on electric and steel guitar.

This show will be offered on the following dates:  Sat. Feb 24; Sat. March 17.

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.

The exhibition will feature an acoustic Akin guitar signed by legendary performer Sir Paul McCartney, and numerous framed certificates signed by the many Foundation musical ambassadors who recognize Buddy Holly’s inspirational musical influence in the early years of Rock and Roll.  The mission of The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation is to honor Buddy’s legacy as well as to make Buddy and Maria Elena Holly’s dream of extending musical education, including songwriting, production, arranging, orchestration, and performance, to new generations regardless of income or ethnicity or learning levels. We will empower a new generation to follow in Buddy’s footsteps.

The Foundation will periodically lend additional items for the exhibition from its extensive collection of artifacts.  The Center will use this opportunity to display other items from its collection, namely, Buddy’s bedroom furniture, acquired by the Center through the auspices of Civic Lubbock, Inc.  Buddy’s dining room table is now on display as well.

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.

Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall
Big Picture!
February 2, 2018 – March 31, 2018
This exhibit is curated by Bryan Wheeler. This exhibit features large-scale works from 13 contemporary Texas artists who explore photography’s immediacy and infinite manipulability.

Big Picture! features photographs by 13 Texas artists. Curated by Bryan Wheeler, these large-scale works and coordinated multiples represent a variety of approaches to contemporary photography. Still, they are unified by their consideration of the camera less as a “transparent machine” than a tool with a wide-ranging capacity for experimentation. Meaning is made here through associative or narrative threads stressing alternately the immediacy and infinite manipulability of the medium. That is, they are both about their subjects and “studies in the possibilities of photography.” By turns, they disrupt and deconstruct, and accumulate meaning through repetition and variation. For example, Molly Shigemoto upsets the embedded personal “meanings” of old photographs by drawing out the often-encoded social structures that inform and limit identity. Kalee Appleton, for her part, refuses the captured image its authority, finality, and unity by treating it as a fragmentary element to be reconstituted and reconsidered within a meditation on digital manipulation. Several of these artists, such as Rachel Cox and Mary Beth Koeth, find beauty in the everyday, but bend it to different ends—Cox’s seductive hot tubs are suffused with an underlying sense of dread, while Koeth’s unerring sincerity humanizes usually-caricatured subjects. Finally, taken together, these large-scale photos assert themselves within the history of art, asking us to consider them as we would “history painting,” murals, and massive twentieth-century abstractions. They don’t use scale as a claim to authority like their predecessors, however, but as assertions of inclusivity looking to be taken seriously, or satires that dare us to do so.

List of Artists:
Bale Creek Allen, Austin
Katy Anderson, Houston
Kalee Appleton, Dallas
Rachel Cox, Dallas
Joe Harjo, San Antonio
Mary Beth Koeth, Dallas/Miami
Jack Massing, Houston
Mark Menjivar, San Antonio
Rolando Sepulveda, San Antonio/Los Angeles

Helen DeVitt Jones Studio Gallery
Overdue, an exhibition of photographs by Robin Dru Germany
February 2, 2018 – March 31, 2018

Overdue” is an exhibition of photographs that explore the porous border between the water and the land, between humans and nature and between knowing and darkness.

Artist Statement
These photos are of the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in the context of science, religion and history, that deliver limited facts and uncertain truths, at the nexus of a conversation about the transience of knowledge and constancy of change.

Water is in our bodies, critical to our survival, surrounding us and flowing through our land. Water is in constant flux. Religions, science, history are crowded with fact and fictions about water but stop short of producing understanding or empathy for its hidden life. We are intimate with water yet little is acknowledged about its needs and requirements. When new creatures are discovered or greater depths are plumbed, the knowledge is treated like a distant novelty, as if the life beneath the sea were unrelated to our own lives. The border between air and water, like all borders, lines or walls encountered, demarcates difference and strangeness on the other side. The life beyond the border is less, sub, beneath our own, not worthy of thought or concern.

The photographs are made partially underwater, at the crux of two worlds. They are made with the camera suspended at the border between the air and water, peering into the dark water beneath at the same time as the sky and land above. The water is mostly impenetrable, a language I do not speak. They are two different environments, one in which air is inhaled and one in which water is the medium. In these photographs, I am more interested in what escapes us, what is obscured, the gaps and blank parts of our understanding. The border between the land and the water is tenuous but definite, and its surface reflects us as in the myth of Narcissus but reveals little below. I am seeking the stories in the water, unknowable stories of life and struggle, stories that are inextricably intertwined with ours and laden with implications for our future.

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:  –

Red or Green:  The Chile Pepper in New Mexico
February 16, 2018 – April 29, 2018

Land Arts Exhibition 2017:  Land Arts of the American West   **new**
Now through April 29, 2018

The exhibition culminates the semester-long transdisciplinary field program Land Arts of the American West presenting documents and constructions by students Elmer Guerrero Arrieta, Lyza Baum, Caroline Carney, k. Flint, R. Ilia Reyes, Nicolle LaMere, and Aida Salán Sierra. 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 two months while traveling 5,572 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. 2017 field guests included Center for Land Use Interpretation director Matt Coolidge, artist Zoe Leonard, 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. The Land Arts 2017 Exhibition will continue through April 29, 2018.

Grasslands of North America and Africa
through January 2019

This exhibit features the underutilized and little known taxidermy mount collection of the Natural Science Research Laboratory of the Museum. This collection contains rare and charismatic species, including many herbivores and carnivores of the African Savannah and the North American prairies. In addition, the exhibit highlights the ecological parameters of these grasslands, as well as explores the natural history attributes of the animals that live in these regions.

Food And…….
Through July 30, 2018

“Food and…,” the Humanities Center’s 2017-2018 theme, crosses disciplines and invites many kinds of thinkers and critical conversations. We all eat, yet the concept of food goes beyond mere nourishment. Through contributions from scholars across the campus of Texas Tech as well as selections from the Museum’s Artist/ Printmaker Research Collection and Clothing and Textiles Division, visitors to the exhibit Food and … are encouraged to explore food as food as metaphor, global challenge, cultural system and a marker of identity.

Along with this exhibit, serving as one component of the Humanities Center’s year long program, visitors are encouraged to visit http://humanitiescenter.ttu.edu to learn more about upcoming events for Spring 2018.

 

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.

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.

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 masters 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.

SAM JOHNSON VIETNAM ARCHIVE (FORMERLY THE TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY – THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE)
Southwest Collections/Special Collections Library
Monday-Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

Texas Tech University
2018 African-American History Month Lecture Series Presents:  NAACP Image Award Winner – Michael Eric Dyson
7:00pm
Allen Theatre
15th Street and Akron Avenue on the campus of Texas Tech University
Tickets:  The events are free and open to the public, but space is limited. Tickets can be picked up prior to the lectures in Doak Hall, Room 101 on a first-come, first-served basis, but are limited to two per person. Any unclaimed seats on the day of the lecture will be made available to others at 6:45 p.m.

Michael Eric Dyson

Born in Detroit, Dyson became an ordained Baptist minister at age 19. He worked in factories to support his family before starting college at 21, then went on to receive master’s and doctorate degrees from Princeton University.

 

Dyson currently serves as a professor of sociology at Georgetown University, where he received widespread attention in 2011 for his course “Sociology of Hip-Hop: Jay-Z.” He has taught at several other well-known institutions, including Brown University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Columbia University, and has been named one of the 150 most powerful African-Americans by Ebony Magazine, called a “superstar professor” by The Washington Post and referred to as “one of the most graceful and lucid intellectuals writing on race and politics today” by Vanity Fair.

 

Cory Powell, director of the The Lauro Cavazos & Ophelia Powell-Malone Mentoring Program (Mentor Tech), said this will be Dyson’s second visit to Texas Tech. Dyson served as the speaker for the annual Mentor Tech Celebration Banquet in 2009.

 

“He has a unique ability to frame historical importance with the urgent necessity of present action to ensure a brighter future,” Powell said. “Considering recent events and the current conversations regarding race, equality and equity, I am certain he will challenge all in attendance to take a stand.”

 

Dyson has appeared on numerous news shows, including “Nightline,” “Real Time with Bill Maher” and “The Colbert Report.” He also hosted his own hour-long news and talk show on NPR, “The Michael Eric Dyson Show.”

 

He has published numerous books, including the 2007 American Book Award winner and 2007 NAACP Image Award nominee “Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster,” the 2006 NAACP Image Award winner “Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind?” and the 2004 NAACP Image Award winner “Why I Love Black Women.”

 

Dyson’s most recent book, “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America,” is a New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly and Washington Post bestseller and has been hailed as a profound and provocative analysis of modern-day race relations.

 

About the African-American History Month Lecture Series

The African-American History Month Lecture Series is in its sixth year and is sponsored by the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost and the Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, along with numerous other Texas Tech entities.

 

“The goal of the lecture series is to introduce the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities to talented and accomplished African-Americans who have had a significant impact in their community, career and the world,” said Nathaniel Wright, chairman of the African-American History Month Lecture Series planning committee. “Moreover, the series represents Texas Tech’s strong commitment to present lectures and forums that speak to pertinent issues facing the African-American community and is a good opportunity for Texas Tech to help shape those conversations now.”

 

Past speakers include:

  • Wes Moore, acclaimed author and entrepreneur
  • Harry Belafonte, iconic entertainer and activist
  • Cornel West, public intellectual and activist
  • Henry Louis Gates, director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African-American Research at Harvard University

By Jennifer Haley

Directed by Patrick Midgley

In the near future, the internet becomes The Nether: a realm of complete sensory immersion, indiscernible from reality. Just log in, select your identity, and indulge your every desire.
But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing new brand of entertainment within The Nether, she begins an interrogation as vast and as disturbing as the human imagination.

 

Half hard-boiled crime drama, half sci-fi thriller, this winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize explores the darkest intersections of technology and human desire.

Adult content including themes of pornography, child pornography, and child violence

Featuring TobyMac, Mandisa, Danny Gokey, Ryan Stevenson and Finding Favour.

About TOBYMAC: With more than 11 million units in career sales and a whopping seven GRAMMY® Awards, TobyMac’s career continues on the fast track. His most recent studio album, THIS IS NOT A TEST garnered a GRAMMY® Award, Billboard Music Award nomination and a high marking debut at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200. Each one of his previous five studio solo projects have achieved Gold certification, a first for an artist in the history of his label, Capitol Christian Music Group. Among those honored with Gold certification, EYE ON IT, which debuted atop the Billboard 200, only the third ever Christian album to do so. His previous live DVD, ALIVE & TRANSPORTED, is RIAA Certified platinum and received a GRAMMY® award.

About Mandisa: With more than 1 million records sold, GRAMMY® winner and American Idol Season 5 finalist Mandisa is a voice of encouragement and truth to people facing life’s challenges all around the world. In less than a year, Mandisa performed her three hit singles “Overcomer,” “Good Morning,” and “Stronger” on the highest rated morning show, ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA.) Her performance of “Stronger” welcomed the emotional return of beloved morning host Robin Roberts. The NFL also welcomed Mandisa to perform the national anthem during a Sunday night NFL Network game to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month where she was joined by members of the 49ers family who are survivors. Her album, Overcomer, released August 27, 2013 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart, with the album’s title track proving to be a smash at radio Mandisa was awarded a GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for her best-selling and critically acclaimed project Overcomer. Additionally, “Overcomer’s” songwriters (David Garcia, Ben Glover & Christopher Stevens) won the GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song.

 

About Danny Gokey: BMG recording artist Danny Gokey became a favorite of millions of fans as a Top 3 finalist on Season 8 of American Idol.  His first album, My Best Days debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Following, Danny has celebrated a series of #1s including his first Award-winning holiday album, “Christmas Is Here,” as well as singles including “Hope In Front of Me” and “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.”   Gokey’s latest album, Rise, reached #1 on the Billboard Top Christian Album chart and its title track, and first single, marked Gokey’s third #1 song.

 

About Ryan Stevenson: Following a seven-year stint as a paramedic, Pacific Northwest native Ryan Stevenson signed an exclusive agreement with Gotee Records in 2013 after capturing TobyMac’s attention by co-writing the No. 1 and Grammy® nominated single “Speak Life,” His first recording for the label was the Holding Nothing Back EP in 2013, which garnered the Top 25 single “Holding Nothing Back. This was followed by 2015’s full-length album Fresh Start which featured the No. 1 radio single “Eye of the Storm”. With three No. 1 singles (two as an artist and one as a co-writer), a GRAMMY® nomination, ASCAP honors and major tour bills with the likes of TobyMacNewsboys and Matt Maher, among others, Ryan has already distinguished himself as a rare talent whose unique perspective guides his honest lyrics and sonic sensibilities.

About Finding Favour: A big part of what makes Finding Favour so endearing is that they’re relatively normal guys. They’re family men who like to hunt & fish, enjoy quiet nights in the country, and don’t know or really care about this year’s fashion trends.  That said, what comes with the territory of ‘normalcy’ are standard feelings all men deal with—like a desire to be respected, accepted and understood. And the fear that creeps in at the thought of those desires falling short.  Naturally, Finding Favour (Blake NeeSmith, Allen Dukes, Dustin Daniels, Matt Pacco and Jon August) know these fears all too well. Or did.

 

About Food For The Hungry: Food For The Hungry seeks to end ALL forms of human poverty by going into the hard places and closely walking with the world’s most vulnerable people. Our view of poverty is holistic and complex. Our solutions are innovative and community-specific. We courageously seek out the overlooked and advocate for the underserved.

About Awakening Events: Awakening Events produces over 175 Contemporary Christian concerts and events nationwide in America and is consistently ranked in Pollstar’s “Worldwide – Top 50 Promoter” list each year, reaching as high as 9th in North America, and top 20 in the world. Awakening Events, based in Conway Arkansas is dedicated to all aspects of live Contemporary Christian music touring, including but not limited to, planning, logistics, creative, marketing and helping create the ultimate fan experience.  For more info visit:  www.AwakeningEvents.com

“Strikingly beautiful.” – New York Times
“A gem of a show.” – The Stage (London)

There was another Mozart – a forgotten genius: Nannerl, the sister of Amadeus. THE OTHER MOZART is the true and untold story of a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history.

With the opulent beauty of the 18 foot dress that makes up the set, the sweet smell of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, the performance creates a multi-sensual experience that the New York Times calls, “Strikingly Beautiful,” and transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight — but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. There, in communion with the audience, this other Mozart at last tells her story.

“Imagine an eleven-year old girl, performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers, on the harpsichord or fortepiano, with precision, with incredible lightness, with impeccable taste. It was a source of wonder to many.” – Augsburger Intelligenz, May 19, 1763.

Awards: 

2015 DRAMA DESK AWARDS Nomination (Outstanding Sound Design in a Play)

2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award Nomination (Best Solo Performance)

Eight 2015 New York Innovation Theatre Awards nominations – winning Outstanding Solo Performance and Outstanding Original Music in a Play

“…a daring reconsideration of light, space and movement…opened a new future for dance.”  Dance News Desk/Broadway World

Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company was founded in 1964 by two Utah women, Joan Woodbury and Shirley Ririe, who were both professors of dance at the University of Utah. Over the years, the Company has grown from its beginning as a local entity, into an internationally renowned contemporary dance company, having performed in every state in the United States, as well as throughout Europe,South Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and the British Isles.

 

In 1972, the Company was selected as one of only 20 dance companies to participate in two prestigious national initiatives: the Dance Touring Program and the Artists in the Schools Program. This opportunity led to the creation of the Company’s education program, which became the national model for dance education in the schools—a model that still stands today.

 

Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company is celebrating its 52nd Season (2015-2016) and boldly continues to engage an exciting future. Executive Director Jena Woodbury, Artistic Director Daniel Charon, and Education Director Ai Fujii Nelson are committed to the continuation of the Company mission: to make dance a viable part of everyone’s lives, whether it be as observers, critics, performers, or creators. Ririe-Woodbury’s performances and educational undertakings are a reflection of the Company’s philosophy that “Dance is for Everybody.” With the strength of its history, the vision of its founders, and the extraordinary ability of its current management, staff, dancers, and board, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company continues to be a major force for innovation in contemporary dance throughout the world.
