Part of the Helmerich Center Opening Weekend Celebration

During an informal conversation, noted Russell scholar B. Byron Price, who is director of the Charles Russell Center and OU Press; and Diana Folsom, head of collection digitization at Gilcrease Museum, will compare and contrast two forms of preservation – Russell's art and his literary and photographic archive – at the Helmerich Center. Price and Folsom will discuss how Russell preserved "the West that has passed" in stirring paintings and sculpture and how the preservation and digitization of his archive bring fresh meaning to his life and work.

Free and open to the public.
