LANDMARK ARTS SRO PHOTO GALLERY PRESENTS
A DOT RED BY CHRISTA BLACKWOOD


February 9 – March 8, 2015   *ends Sunday*
Landmark Arts of Texas Tech University’s School of Art presents the photographs of Christa Blackwood as the sixth exhibition in the 2014 - 2015 SRO Photo Gallery exhibition series.  A Dot Red is on display from February 9 to March 8.
The series A Dot Red by Christa Blackwood is a photographic exploration of “new perspectives on traditional genres.” The photographs in this series were produced with the historic photographic techniques of tin-type and photogravure, developed and popularized in the early 19th century. The subject matter of A Dot Red – expansive desert landscapes, and portraits of nearly stoic young men and a fragmented young woman – continues the traditions of portraiture and landscape photography. Yet the simple gesture of incorporating a small, transparent red dot within each image is transformative. A seemingly minor aberration can become a focal point, and this symbolic red badge of courage, icon of a gallery sale and the commodification of art and its subjects, distorted lens, or whatever other possibility, invokes the “visual literacy” of the viewer and a consideration of the content of inheritance and meaning.
Christa Blackwood is a photo, text based, and installation artist. She holds an MFA from New York University, and is the founder of The Children’s Photograph Collective.  She exhibits nationally and internationally.

LANDMARK ARTS SRO PHOTO GALLERY PRESENTS
SEXUALITY SANDWICHES BY DAVID MARTIN


March 9 – April 12, 2015

Landmark Arts of Texas Tech University’s School of Art presents the photographs of David Martin as the seventh exhibition in the 2014 - 2015 SRO Photo Gallery exhibition series.

The photographs in David Martin’s series Sexuality Sandwiches are sharp and crystal clear. Sandwiches are presented in large-scale and up close, set against an inscrutable white background. The sandwich ingredients are layered and captured so beautifully that the folds in the meat, the oils on the bread, the colors and crunch of vegetables, and the visibly delicate nuances of cheese, heighten and absorb the senses. Martin’s sandwiches are sexy, and sometimes surprising. Each sandwich is the favorite of an individual from whom Martin collected data, and Martin presents his data – an ingredient list, sexual preference, race, gender, religious, professional, and age identifiers – alongside each photograph. As a whole, Sexuality Sandwiches contributes to a discourse on social expectations, stereotypes, and classification, and questions the connections “we think we see.”
David Martin holds an MFA from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY. Martin recently moderated a panel on “Queer Photography: An open and inclusive panel discussion on queer art in schools, studios, galleries, and beyond” at the Society of Photographic Educators conference in Chicago, IL. He exhibits nationally.

In 1939, Wade, returned to the icy frontier as Senior Scientist for the United States Antarctic Service to plan and manage the expedition’s scientific program as well as command the cutting-edge Snow Cruiser, a mobile research lab equipped with an airplane on its roof. Wade came to Texas Tech University in 1954 serving as Chair of the Department of Geosciences and leading 6 Texas Tech Antarctic expeditions. Wade was also a member of the first group of professors to be awarded as a Horn Professor. In 1971, he created the Antarctic Research Center at the Museum of Texas Tech University to further advance the discoveries of the Texas Tech expeditions that are detailed in this year’s featured Horn Professor exhibition, “Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent,” a new exhibit running Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
The exhibit highlights nearly 100 objects from the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, said Tabitha Schmidt, interim director for the Museum. Attendees can learn why it took 200 years before large sections of the Antarctic interior could be explored. Penguins, sled dogs, fossils of ancient animals, and a mummified seal tell the story of how this seemingly inhospitable landscape, 98 percent covered in snow and ice, has evolved and always teemed with life.
“Not only will you be able to trace the steps of Antarctic exploration, you can see how you would measure up to a life-sized cutout of an Emperor penguin, interact with games that test your knowledge of Antarctic exploration, learn about the Frozen Continent’s prehistoric tropical past, and see what parts of an actual exploration campsite would have looked like,” Schmidt said. “The exhibition also features a large mock glacier in the main gallery that contains a continuous mural depicting Antarctic scenery. These are experiences you will not want to miss.”

THROUGH THE LENS OF BILL WEAKS 
November 2014-June 2015
Bill Weaks bought his first camera as a senior at Plainview High School. After selling a few photographs he realized the potential of turning his hobby into a profitable business. Photography quickly became his life’s work and he opened Bill Weaks’ Photography on September 4, 1955. Though based in Plainview, he also worked in Amarillo, Lubbock, Dallas and El Paso, photographing weddings and community events. He produced portraits of many brides who purchased their gowns at Margaret’s specialty shop or Hemphill-Wells department store in Lubbock. For thirty years, Weaks taught courses for the Professional Photographers of America, and received awards and recognition on a national level.
On display are Bill Weaks’ photos of brides from 1949-1982 along with photos of the community during that time period. The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library is pleased to present this collection for the use of scholars and researchers.

THE TEXAS TECH DAIRY BARN:  A RESILIENT SYMBOL OF WEST TEXAS
October 2014-March 2015   *ending soon*
The Texas Technological College Dairy Barn was constructed during 1926-27 and served as a teaching facility for 40 years.  The original facility was equipped to sanitarily produce whole milk and cream. The Department of Dairy Manufacturers was able to extend the milking room at the south end of the building due to proceeds from its sales and added butter, ice cream and cheese to its product line.
When the new college opened, agriculture students were allowed to bring their dairy cattle to reside in the barn.  The money earned by selling the milk to others and by working in the dairy facility helped pay for these students’ education.
The National Park Service approved of the barn's registry into the National Register of Historic places on April 2, 1992.  The Dairy Barn remains quite arguably one of the most recognized and beloved of all the buildings on the Texas Tech campus.

DR. SHERMAN VINOGRAD-MEDICAL SCIENCE DIRECTOR AT NASA
May 2014-September 2015
During the eighteen years that Dr. Vinograd served as NASA’s Director of Medical Science he led medical engineering and vehicle development research relating to manned space flight. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the in-flight Medial Experiments Program, which evaluated human responses to extended space flight in preparation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab manned space flight programs. His greatest achievement was conceptualizing, establishing, and chairing the Space Medicine Advisory Group (SPAMAG), which was charged with defining the earth-based and space-based research and life-support requirements for a manned orbiting research laboratory. This group proposed an orbiting laboratory designed according to the needs of future human flight crews which resulted in the creation of Skylab. Now on display at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library through September 2015, is an exhibit containing books, photographs, artifacts, and medical and scientific reports. More information on this topic can be found in the Sherman P. Vinograd Papers.

Arrr…Ye Ready for Family Fun this Spring?
 
Pirates & Treasure!
 
February 14th to May 25th, 2015
 
at the Science Spectrum & OMNI Theater.
 
"There is something in a treasure that fastens upon a man's mind...
He will never forget it..."
                                          - Nostromo (from Nostromo by Joseph Conrad)
 
Treasure is a word that stirs the imagination of everyone, of every age. An educational and entertaining exhibit for museums and science/technology centers, Pirates & Treasure! explores the history of treasures and treasure hunting, the technology employed in hunting treasure, as well as the people and personalities that hunt for treasure—including you!
What is treasure? Who hunts for treasure? Why do they hunt treasure? How do people hunt for treasure? What do you treasure? Explore these questions and take part in your own treasure hunt when you visit Pirates & Treasure!
Pirates & Treasure! has several thematic areas and hands-on activities that allow you to try tools of treasure hunting and investigate treasures.  Discover the life and times of pirates on the High Seas, from “Black Bart” and “Blackbeard” to “Long Ben”, learn why these pirate legends are still romanticized today.  Special exhibit features include actual artifacts from shipwrecks and other treasure sites. Visitors are invited to go on a treasure hunt in the exhibit to locate the special treasure chest.
THEMATIC AREAS OF PIRATES & TREASURE!
Underwater Treasure — Sunken treasure, lost aboard ships that never arrived at their destinations, has long been the object of pursuit for treasure hunters. This part of the exhibit examines who are these hunters, what tools do they use to locate treasure, and what do they find. Actual shipwreck artifacts are part of this module. Activities include a Remote Operated Vehicle.
Buried Treasure — Pirate booty, the Knights Templar, and hoards of gold are popular themes in treasure lore and some of it really exists. How do people hunt for buried treasure? What do they find? These topics are explored in the buried treasure area.
Metal Detecting — Throughout Pirates & Treasure!, the tools and technology of treasure hunting are explored. Visitors can experiment with metal detectors and see how they work in this part of the exhibit that bridges Buried Treasure and the Modern Treasure Hunt.
Gold Rushes — The gold rushes of the 19th century are slipping further into history but their impact remains in many parts of the North America. This part of the exhibit brings the hunt for gold to your visitors with an actual gold panning activity. Biographical sketches, timelines, and maps put the gold rushes in context. Visitors are also invited to be worth their weight in gold with our special scale.
Treasures in the Attic — Bringing the treasure closer to home, the attic module shows visitors how to find treasures in everyday objects. Family heirlooms and even long-lost toys may hold hidden value. Treasure hunting is often thought of as someone else's activity, but most of us pursue our own version of treasure in one way or another. The attic invites people to consider, what do YOU treasure?
Treasure in Popular Culture — Treasure is one of the most popular themes across cultures. Games, books, movies, TV shows are full of treasure stories. Even breakfast cereal and license plates have been touched by our thirst for the adventure of treasure hunting. This thematic area will be split between the Attic and the Introductory area in some venues.
The Modern Treasure Hunt — Contemporary treasure hunting employs exciting technology, like metal detectors. In this area, visitors will consider the various ways that people find their way (maps, compasses, landmarks) and other tools of navigation, including the Global Positioning System.
Geocaching — This family-friendly outdoor activity first appeared in 2001 and now boasts hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts. Using GPS receivers, players hide and seek 'treasure' purely for fun. Visitors will do an indoor version of geocaching in this part of the exhibit.
Protecting Treasure — To what extremes will people go to protect treasure—or to steal it? Visitors try their hand at opening a safe in this area, which only appears in larger showings of the exhibit!
Kids Cove - The exhibit will also feature a pirate ship play structure for kids including a captain’s wheel, telescopes, a real firing air cannon, a craft area and puppet theater.
 
Critter Hut - Visit the Critter Hut to see exotic tropical species including crocodiles, boa constrictors, macaws, and poison dart frogs, hissing cockroaches, scorpions and more.
