The Harry Ransom Center has a small collection of Shakespeare related items on display. This made for a good Sunday outing.
Frank Reaugh led a very interesting life. His passion was documenting the Southwest by using pastels and paint. The exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center had several of his art pieces on display. Just imagine getting the chance to travel with him and watch his plein air process of painting the countryside and animals in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
My visit to the Harry Ransom Center was to see the Alice in Wonderland Exhibit. It was full of wonderful things. There was art, books, games, records, films, photos and other things of interest. They told the story from when Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) first dreamed up the concept, all the way to works of present day artists. The exhibit is there until July 6, so check it out if you get the opportunity.
Today I went to see the Gone With The Wind Exhibition at the Harry Ransom Center on the University of Texas campus. They had a ton of memorabilia, including the conserved green curtain dress worn by Vivien Leigh. If you are a fan of the movie, you might want to catch this exhibit before it closes on January 4th, 2015.
