September/October
2017

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.

The “Man” always goes to the Annual Taste of Tyler Party.  It goes back to the leadership days of Danny Case and Jerry Bower and continues “even unto this hour” with Bob Westbrook and Roger Lumley.  These good men have taken good care of me…and this year was no exception.

The Social Hour

March/April
2017

Before there was Facebook, there was the coffee shop. People were less focused on a screen, and more on the face in front of them. Yes, life without phones, tablets and laptops did exist around the 90s and prior. And you know what, few of those folks are still stuck in the 90s.

A taste of the northeast coast has just landed in Tyler!  Yep, it’s an authentic oyster bar in the age old tradition from Maine to Maryland. The style, design, menu, layout and ambiance are classically the same, high-end and first class.

A FOOD TRUCK NATION

November/December

Food trucks ... they are everywhere! The popular (or shall I say hip) way to grab a quick bite to eat is by walking up to a moving vehicle, and ordering something that can be whipped up right there on the spot. Isn’t that something? But did you know, this American tradition is nothing new?

A dog eats and drinks as much as a human does, so it’s about time someone out there thought up dog products that make a dog’s (well at least the owner’s) life a bit easier.

"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
