November 1, 2013-February 22, 2014
This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the 2013 Texas Sculpture Network Symposium and will consist of three parts: outdoor monumental sculptures, indoor sculpture and works on paper made by sculptors.
Monumental sculptures will be placed on the Museum grounds to take advantage of the views from the walking path that rims the lake and to be visible from Midwestern State University, the location of the symposium. The size and scale of the outdoor sculptures and the quality of the exhibition of works on paper will attract and engage diverse audiences. The 2013 Texas Sculpture Symposium in November will bring artists and art enthusiasts from across Texas to view the exhibitions.
The ART EXPRESS : A First Class Ticket to Fun!
The 2013 Installation features electric trains in scale settings of towns, mountains, valleys, farm lands, oil fields, all inhabited by people and animals with operating traffic and street lights.
Jim Hughes’ amazing collection was launched in December 1941 and has grown each year from the original set given to him by his parents. The Art Express is truly a labor of love and a gift to the community by Jim Hughes, who serves as conductor!
