How We Met

2017
January/February

Love is in the air, and it’s been in the air since December. Between the Christmas holidays and Valentine's, everything from food to wrapping paper has hearts all over it. Have you noticed? Or how about on your TV with love stories playing around the clock on the Hallmark Channel? It’s everywhere, and though some may think many people find this type of atmosphere to be annoying, there are more people who enjoy it. Take me for example! I am a sucker for the Hallmark Channel movies, and some of my friends don’t even know that.

For as long as I could remember, I have loved hearing the answer to one simple question: “How did you meet?”  You can show-off that fancy engagement ring all you want, but I’d rather skip the “How did he propose,” for the “How did you meet?” Why? If there’s one thing I can remember about you, it will be the memory of how we met. I’m not sure why this always stands out, but it does. There is something unique in a sense that it will be different from anyone else's story. Whether it be something extravagant or something simple, every couple has that one thing that makes the story theirs. 

So it got me thinking, if I enjoy hearing these ...  someone else must too! The Hallmark Channel wouldn’t be airing a hundred movies on the topic of love if they thought no one cared to watch them. I decided why not give the people what they want. With it being Valentine's season and all, as if the red, white and pink aisle at Walmart wasn’t already a reminder, I decided to seek out some dynamic lovebirds, in the area, who were willing to share their love story with the readers of BSCENE. One simple question, "how did you guys meet?" That’s all it took to get the "aww" and "how cute" going! So, bring on the romance and Happy Valentine's Day to all of you super couples out there!

"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
