In 1929 after years of planning, the new Boston Avenue Methodist Church held its first worship service. Soon afterward, a controversy originated about who designed the non traditional, Art Deco structure: Adah Robinson or Bruce Goff.

Join us in watching our very own Teresa Holder as a special guest discussing this topic in a public forum panel talk. She will be speaking with Kevin Adkisson and CPS’s Creative Director, Western Doughty. Tickets are free click here. 

Mark Sisson was invited to participate in The Trumped 2.0 Portfolio, a national lithographic print invitational. Each participant received a boxed portfolio of 30 prints. An additional five portfolios were made to be given to interested public collections. Portfolios have been placed in the following collections: The Library of Congress Prints & Photographs Division; The New York Public Library, Artist Printmaker/Photographer Research Collection, Texas Tech University Museum, Lubbock, TX, Janet Turner Print Museum, California State University, Jules Heller Print Study Room, Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe, AZ;  Block Museum at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

Printmaker Richard Peterson organized and selected artists for both the Trump 1,0 and the Trump 2.0 Portfolios

“In 2019, the second volume, “Trumped 2.0” was put together, this time Peterson co-organizing with Beauvais Lyons, a Chancellor’s Professor from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, who printed the title page/ colophon.  This second volume has many of the same artists and some new faces. The Trumped 2.0 exchange was mailed to participants the week that it was announced that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the U.S. Presidential and Vice-Presidential election.

About the portfolio Lyons notes “This portfolio is remarkable for the diversity of the artists who participated, encompassing three generations with many younger artists of color. In presenting artistic images about what they do not like about the Trump presidency, they are also affirming what the presidency should be.” 
All prints use lithographic methods and are printed by the artists on 15 x 20 inch archival paper.”

A Companion to Viceregal Mexico City, 1519-1821 presents an overview of colonial Mexico City and the important role it played in the creation of the early modern Hispanic world. Dr. Cristina González’s essay, “Visualizing Corporate Piety: The Art of Religious Brotherhoods,” considers how residents of the city performed their ethnic and social identities through confraternities. Her chapter is devoted to the art and visual culture of these lay religious associations. Research for the essay was supported by the Oklahoma Humanities Council and the Arts and Sciences Research Grant at Oklahoma State University.
