Wife of cattleman Charles Goodnight, Molly drove supply wagons and took charge of ranch operations when her husband was absent. Affectionately called “the Little Mother of the Plains,” she cared for the cowhands and Indians who came to the ranch as a way to combat the loneliness of being the only woman in the area. Molly and her husband built Goodnight College, helped found a community church and were responsible for the preservation of the Texas buffalo.

Georgia O'Keeffe spent 70 years making art and contributing to the development of American modernism. She was a prominent member of the creative Stieglitz Circle, influencing early American modernists. She is notable for her role as a pioneering female artist, and although she disavowed their interpretation of her work, she was a strong influence on the artists of the Feminist art movement, including Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro, who saw feminine imagery in O'Keeffe's flower paintings. A prolific artist, she produced more than 2000 works over the course of her career. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe is the first museum in the United States dedicated to a female artist, and its research center sponsors significant fellowships for scholars of modern American art.

ANDERSON, HATTIE MABEL | The Handbook of Texas Online| Texas State Historical Association (TSHA)

March is Women's History Month. Today we want to celebrate PPHM's founder, Hattie Anderson.

In 1920, after pursuing studies for a year at the University of Chicago, Anderson accepted a position with the history faculty at West Texas State Teachers' College (now West Texas A&M University). Her interest in the Panhandle's pioneer heritage was quickly fueled by her realization that the region had only recently emerged from its frontier phase and that many pioneers were living. Recognizing a unique opportunity for professional historians to know and work with the pioneer generation, Anderson sought ways to turn this opportunity to account. With the backing of the college president, Joseph A. Hill, she organized the Panhandle-Plains Historical Society in February 1921. She chaired the committee that drew up the constitution and bylaws and cosigned the state charter. She was also instrumental in allying the society with the Panhandle Old Settlers Association and was a leader in the establishment of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in 1932.

Read more here about Hattie's life on the Texas State Historical Association website.

ANDERSON, HATTIE MABEL (1887–1965). Hattie Mabel Anderson, college professor, writer and cofounder of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Society, one of six children of Swedish immigrant parents, was born on a farm near Norborne, Missouri, on February 9, 1887. Her father served for several years as a...

William Barret Travis | Humanities Texas

Yesterday marked the anniversary of William B. Travis' famous "Victory or Death" letter.

William Barret Travis was only twenty-six years old when he died defending the Alamo... In February 1836, newly commissioned Lt. Colonel Travis assumed joint command of the Alamo with James Bowie. As Mexican forces gathered, Travis sent dispatches to fellow Texians pleading for reinforcements. "If my countrymen do not rally to my relief," he declared, "I am determined to perish in defense of this place, and my bones shall reproach my country for her neglect."

His words were prophetic: little help came, but outrage over the slaughter of Travis and other Alamo defenders inspired a rush of Texian volunteers who ultimately defeated Mexican General Santa Anna at San Jacinto.

The Museum of Concepts: How do you display ideas? - Museum Hack

But while concept museums might have to work a bit harder to connect with some visitors, they also have some distinct advantages. They can collect and display a much broader range of objects, and easily insert themselves into current events, trends, and debates. Not representing a specific organisation or person also means they can also take greater creative risks in interpretation and programming. It’s no coincidence that concept museums are usually at the cutting-edge of museum sector.

Concept museums, or museums that focus on ideas, are at the cutting edge of visitor experience. But how are they doing it?

A New Era for the Museum Shop Merchandise

It’s all in an effort to move beyond the “souvenir shop” feel that these retail locations have had for years, with their stale layouts and limited merchandise options. Indeed, that’s all changing, thanks to merchandisers and shop managers committed to livening up the experience.

“Museum shops are no longer just about selling things,” Diane Drubay, chief executive of museum marketing consultancy We Are Museums, told The New York Times. “They are about adding a new step to the museum experience.”

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)
"Red Landscape" (1917)
While in Canyon, O'Keeffe spent her free time painting and drawing Palo Duro Canyon, the flatness of the plains, and the great dome of the sky. Experts on the artist consider her time in Canyon essential to her becoming one of the most important American artists of the twentieth century. O'Keeffe herself acknowledged the Texas Plains as her spiritual home.
Only four oil paintings resulted from O'Keeffe's time in Canyon, including "Red Landscape". The Museum is fortunate to have such an extremely rare example of O'Keeffe's work on the Texas Plains. "Red Landscape" can also be experienced through the Nancy Josserand "Art for Everyone" 3D relief of the painting.

The Night Before Christmas, published by M.A. Donohue & Co. The company was based out of Chicago in the early 1900s and focused on publishing inexpensive editions of popular works of fiction. The book was donated by Mrs. Libby Read to the collection in 1995. "A Visit from St. Nicholas", more commonly known as "The Night Before Christmas" and "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" from its first line, is a poem first published anonymously in 1823 and later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, who claimed authorship in 1837. Some commentators now believe the poem was written by Henry Livingston Jr.. The poem has been called "arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American" and is largely responsible for some of the conceptions of Santa Claus from the mid-nineteenth century to today. It has had a massive impact on the history of Christmas gift-giving. Before the poem gained wide popularity, American ideas had varied considerably about Saint Nicholas and other Christmastide visitors. "A Visit from St. Nicholas" eventually was set to music and has been recorded by many artists.

How do art museums decide what great works should be fridge magnets?

Interesting article on museum stores. Our goal is to provide our visitors the opportunity to take a piece of PPHM home with them. "These unique retail spaces help educate visitors, build the museum's brand, and work to highlight - and sometimes even influence - the aspects of art the institution views as important...Though there are skeptics of the effect’s strength, even they admit that repeatedly seeing an artwork (if it isn’t truly terrible) is one factor that can influence our perception of what counts as Great Art."
