Museum of TTU hosts art deco glass collection
The Museum of Texas Tech University, 3301 Fourth St., is hosting the exhibit «Art Deco Glass from the David Huchthausen Collection» through Sunday.
Organized by Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, this exhibit is from the Huchthausen Collection, which included early Twentieth century glass by iconic Art Deco studios such as René Lalique, Daum Frères, Pierre d’Avesn, Charles Schneider, Muller Frères, Marius-Ernest Sabino, Steuben Glass Works, and many others.
Characterized by smooth lines, geometric shapes, and bright colors, the Art Deco glass movement began, in part, as a reaction against the elaborate and ornate style of Art Nouveau in the late 19th century.
Art Deco Glass from the Huchthausen Collection included more than 200 pieces from his personal collection, which is now composed of more than 300 works of Art Deco glass, much of it by European designers.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Museum hours are Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays 1-5 p.m.; and closed on Mondays.

East Lubbock Art House hosting exhibition

Through daguerreotype, photo collage, and mixed media plexiglass sculptures, Lindsay speaks to the use of attorney visitation rooms, jail cells, the preciousness of each person that cycles through the legal system, and their personal experience of a career in the legal justice system.
