CURRENT EXHIBITS – NATIONAL RANCHING HERITAGE CENTER:  -

ACROSS TIME AND TERRITORY:  THE NRHC STORY
“Across Time and Territory: the National Ranching Heritage Center Story," is a permanent exhibit covering the walls of the Don and Kay Cash Reception Hall. Material in the exhibition is present in a mural form with 3-D enhancements. Also in this area are two touch-screen monitors featuring attractive photographs of the structures in the historical park, presented in a virtual tour format, along with educational information about each building, available in both English and Spanish suitable for adults and children.

PORTRAIT GALLERY:  FACES OF THE NRHC BY PAUL MILOSEVICH
Paul Milosevich is an accomplished artist, some say one of the best at portrait painting. He enjoys portraits because of the time that goes into creating one. "A painted portrait takes hours to do. And if it's done from the person actually sitting there, it's three to 10 hours of the artist’s life that was spent creating that portrait. Add the physical properties of paint, plus everything that the artist brings into it, and also what kind of responses the subject triggered in the artist. Sometimes you can look at a painted portrait and sense the hours that went by." This exhibit features portraits of some of the people who have guided and shaped the NRHC.

HORSE-DRAWN TO HORSEPOWER
Opens August 17
"Horse-Drawn to Horsepower" is an exhibit that offers a look at America's transition from the horse and buggy to the horseless carriage. The exhibit focuses on rural America with artifacts that include horse-drawn vehicles that were common on ranches, along with their motor vehicle replacements.
One of the featured artifacts is a working 1923 Ford Model T “chuck truck,” or motorized chuck wagon. Other artifacts include a wide array of tools and materials related to the Ford Model T, which became a common sight on many ranches in the early 20th century. Rare photographs showing early automobiles at work in rural America will also be on display. The exhibit opens on August 17 and closes in summer 2014.
The National Ranching Heritage Center is a museum and historical park comprised of 48 authentic dwellings and outbuildings from some of history’s most important ranches. Structures on the 16-acre site have been authentically restored and furnished and date from the late 1780s to the 1950s.



FUTURE PROMISE:  SELECTIONS FROM THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF ROLAND AND JOYCE JONES
Future Promise is a small sample of the artwork that Roland and Joyce Jones plan on donating to the National Ranching Heritage Center. The exhibit features paintings, watercolors, drawings and sculptures.

WOMEN WHO SHAPED TEXAS TECH
October 2013-June 2014
Margaret Watson Weeks, Mary Woodward Doak and Elizabeth Howard West would emerge as three important figures in the history of women at Texas Tech. Margaret Watson Weeks, Dean of the School of Home Economics for over twenty-five years, shaped the School’s programs, courses, and the cultural and social activities for women on campus. She also worked to establish Casa Linda, a cooperative residence for women on the Tech campus. Mary Woodward Doak served as both the Dean of Women and a professor in the English Department from 1925-1945 and was responsible for encouraging support for a museum at Texas Tech. Elizabeth Howard West, having worked at the Library of Congress and as Texas State Library Archivist, served as the first librarian at Texas Technological College in 1925. The exhibit contains more information on these three remarkable women as well as items and scenes from early college life at Texas Tech, all of which is housed in the University Archives at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.

TRACTORCADE!  AMERICAN AGRUCULTURE MOVEMENT 
March 3  - June 15, 2014
The 35th anniversary of the American Agriculture Movement’s last great Tractorcade in 1979 is commemorated in a current exhibit at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.
Protests for parity began in 1977 and continued through 1978 when 3,000 farmers, known as the “Gentle Rebels,” drove their tractors with their concerns to Washington D.C. The exhibit includes photos, memorabilia, belt buckles, patches, hats and other items. Also an audio component features a song by Ace Ball chronicling the movement.
