SMU’s Meadows Museum to Screen Frank Reaugh Film

Blanco Canyon.001

UPDATE: We have a packed house planned for Thursday! All seats have been spoken for. If you feel lucky, you can stop by to see if there is a no-show, but we can’t make any promises there will be an extra seat – sorry!

On March 30, 2017, starting at 5:30pm, SMU and the Meadows Museum is honoring our Frank Reaugh documentary with a special screening as part of their Clements Center Evening Lecture Series.

It is fitting to be screening at the University since SMU was a key contributor to the film in several ways. SMU’s own Sam Ratcliffe, head of the Jerry Bywaters Special Collections in the Hamon Arts Library, is one of twelve interviewees featured in the documentary. And, SMU was a contributor to the film with the loan of several historical images from the extensive SMU Digital Collection including this painting of Blanco Canyon (seen here.) Another interviewee and student of Frank Reaugh, Lucretia Donnell, earned her degree in Art and Education from SMU along with several other Reaugh students such as Alexandre Hogue and Florence McClung, also discussed in the documentary.

The screening and parking are FREE and open to the public, general seating. The Museum is asking that you please register as soon as possible at this link to assist with seating.

This special screening is co-sponsored by SMU’s William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies, the Hamon Arts Library, the Jerry Bywaters Special Collections Library, and the Meadows Museum.
