Jane Ackerman, associate professor of religion, Department of Philosophy and Religion at TU, will discuss how Thomas Gilcrease built an archive to tell stories of America to museum visitors. Gilcrease often used features of his ancestry and upbringing as lenses through which to look at our continent. What he saw of America very often affected what he chose for the trove in the Gilcrease Museum Archive.
Free and open to the public.
