2019 Forsyth 30th Anniversary Party and Immersive Opera

What an incredible evening! Thanks to all our friends who came to celebrate the Forsyth's 30th Anniversary with us last week.

We were treated to an immersive opera experience by Nathan Felix and some talented, local musicians. Felix composed an opera, entitled "Natives," especially for the Forsyth based on three paintings of Native Americans in our permanent collections. It was a breathtaking experience!

Here's to many more years of celebrating the arts at Texas A&M and in the Brazos Valley.

The Forsyth celebrated its 30th Anniversary with hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and an immersive opera performance composed by Austin’s Nathan Felix. Guests wandered through exhibitions and experienced a one-of-a-kind operatic performance composed exclusively for the galleries based on three paint...

Colgate and Company started as a soap and candle company. By 1906, they were producing 625 varieties of perfume sold in American and European pharmacies. We know Colgate today for its toothpaste; their first dental cream sold in jars in 1873, and the first tube came out in 1896.

By the 1920s, Colgate stopped perfume production and focused on their highly profitable dental products. Come see an example of a relatively plain Colgate perfume bottle and compare it to spectacular artistic examples made in France, America, and England in the Forsyth’s exhibit, "The Seduction of Scent."
