It was exactly one year ago, just twelve months, that we did a party at Kawa’s Hibachi Grill & Lounge.  Yep, the “Man” and eight beautiful ladies had a hoot of a time and enjoyed the presentations of Hibachi Chef Arthur.  We titled our evening, “A River Runs Through It,” because “one does” an

While many parents are educated on how to stand up to a school bully; living in a virtually connected cyber world puts school bullies right in the child’s bedroom. Children no longer get the luxury of escaping the bullies when they come home from school.

I once heard that you could tell a book is well-loved by its dog-eared pages and notes in the margin. No book is more loved and revered than the Bible.

The Humane Society was established in 1963 by concerned citizens after they visited our city’s animal pound.  At that time, animals were housed in one small building regardless of the health of the animals.  Control was turned over to the Humane Society in 1964 and the shelter opened its doors in

"Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots"

Oct 01 @ 01:00 pm | Tyler Museum of Art | Tyler, TX

~~One of the most highly anticipated exhibitions in recent years comes to the Tyler Museum of Art with “Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots,” open to the public Sunday, Oct. 1 through Jan. 7, 2018 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.

The exhibition, organized by the TMA, features close to 40 works by the late Pop Art icon, including a series of Warhol’s signature silkscreen prints drawn from the Cochran Collection of LaGrange, Ga., and a collection of his celebrity-centric Polaroid photographs from the Meadows Museum of American Art at Centenary College of Louisiana.

“Screen Prints & Snapshots” showcases several distinct bodies of work from the later career of Warhol, notably the silkscreen prints from the 1986 “Cowboys and Indians” he completed shortly before his death, spotlighting such iconic subjects as John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Geronimo; his 1981 Myths series, featuring touchstones of American pop culture including Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody and Superman; and selections from his “Flash,” “Flowers” and “Television” series. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Polaroids and silver gelatin prints, shot from 1958 until Warhol’s 1987 death and offering insight into his intimate relationship with his celebrity friends – Dolly Parton, Jack Nicklaus and Pia Zadora among them.

General exhibition admission is $6 for adults and $4 for seniors. Admission is free for TMA members, students, children under 12, Tyler Junior College faculty/staff and City of Tyler employees. Regular Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays and major holidays). For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit http://www.tylermuseum.org
