The Stark Museum

If you are planning a vacation this summer with your kids, check out The Stark Museum of Art. They are located in the City of Orange Texas by Texas Gulf Coast and have two-story facility contains a wide collection of artwork. They specialize on 19th and 20th American Western art and artifacts in the country. The Museum is founded by the Nelda C. and H. J. Lutcher Stark Foundation. Did you know that the Museum grounds cover an entire block and the building itself has a room for 15,000 square feet of exhibition space? That would take at least a day or so, just to look around or to see everything they have on display.

The Stark Museum of Art has an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures, with the contributions of artist such as: John Young-Hunter, H.S. “Andy” Anderson, Paul Kane, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Louis Prang, William Herbert Dunton, Buck McCain, Alexandre Hogue, Walter Ufer, Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, James Earle Fraser, William Robinson Leigh, John James Audubon and many more, I believe. They also have a huge collection of Native American Craftwork, Navajo rugs and blankets, and Pueblo pottery. Featured artwork by Maria Martinez reveals the skills of Native American Artist. Even if you are not an art person I think these are interesting.

Museums are the best place to be when raining outside. You will not get wet and you can spend the whole day admiring their collections of: Western Art conveys the artistic interpretation of the Western region, American Indian Art consist of objects created by the tribes of the Great Plains, Southwest, Eastern Woodlands and Northwest Coast, Decorative Arts features primarily glass and porcelain including the complete set of the United States in Crystal, and Rare Books and Manuscripts includes the rare work titled The Bird of America, Books of Hours and many more.

"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations. I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
