My favorite time of the year is quickly approaching. The long hot days of summer will soon give way to shorter days and the crisp cool evenings of autumn. The streets of Manhattan and Aggieville will soon be much busier with students returning to school. There will be football, marching bands, tailgating and the beautiful colors of fall.
In addition to the excitement of school starting, the Beach Museum of Art has an exciting new traveling exhibition opening on September 14. According to museum director, Linda Duke, “It is relatively rare for a small university art museum to have an opportunity to organize a major touring exhibition accompanied by a scholarly catalogue…. Art for Every Home: Associated American Artists is such a project.” Curator and project director, Liz Seaton, and all of the Beach Museum staff have worked for several years on this project. We hope you will come enjoy this exhibition and bring your friends and families.
Also happening at the Beach this fall is our gala on September 25. This year’s event looks to be another fun and exciting evening at the Beach thanks to the hard work of Micky Jensen and her committee. Buy your tickets and tell your neighbors. Come join us in celebration of “Art for Every Home.”
See you at the Beach!
