The third annual collaboration by members of the Regional Museum Network (RMN), this exhibition brings together Texoma collections, stories, and people. Objects and narratives give insight into the rich resources and quality of life offered by the museums of this region and the people who preserve these riches for future generations.
In many ways, this exhibition explores the questions, why do communities found and sustain museums, and why are objects important?
As champions of objects, museums open the door to the benefits of object-based learning. Engaging with original objects is experiential. It encourages close observation and connects the past and present. The examination of an object includes the object, the maker, and you. One of the greatest benefits is the inspiration and curiosity that occurs when you experience the powerful realization that, as you examine an object, you become connected to the person who created it.
When you really look at an object in a museum, you pay attention to another person’s expression through your senses and your knowledge, like bringing all of yourself to listen to another.
Representing the Texas counties Archer, Baylor, Clay, Montague, Wichita, Wilbarger, and Young, the collaborative and supportive Regional Museum Network of the Wichita Falls Alliance for Art and Culture encourages member organizations to grow in excellence. These are your museums!
