Starting this year, the Sid Richardson Museum is embarking on a new venture: public programs for adults. The education department is designing and implementing exciting and dynamic adult public programs that provide engaging experiences aimed at enhancing visitors’ relationships with the artwork. We do this by creating programs that facilitate personal meaning making, which encourages lasting connections and lifelong learning.
Last Friday kicked off our season with a wonderful lecture by TCU professor Dr. Mark Thistlethwaite. Dr. Thistlethwaite discussed the artworks of Remington and Russell within the context of a dynamically changing U.S. at the turn of the century. Our visitors learned about the shifting roles of women, new applications of painting methods, Remington and Russell’s influence on contemporary artists, and much more.
