Carl McQueary with the Grace Museum (Abilene) presents a special view of Texas art, 1909-1959, with a view of developing modernism. Video in several parts.
The work is introduced as "In 2009, the building that is home and namesake to The Grace Museum will celebrate its 100th anniversary. To honor the building and the century of Texas history it has witnessed, The Grace is curating an original exhibition of Texas art during the period 1909-1959 to be exhibited in all four main galleries simultaneously. The exhibition will be organized primarily from private and public collections across Texas, exhibiting a great deal of little-shown and infrequently published Texas art. The core of the exhibit, however, will center on ten significant pieces of early Texas art from The Grace's permanent collection. This online guide includes The Grace's artworks as the core of the project, supplemented with loan objects, text, and video interviews."
