The Wichita Falls Museum of Art at
Midwestern State University is a recipient of a $5,000 Arts Create grant from
the Texas Commission on the Arts, which will help support exhibitions at the WFMA
in the 2017-2018 schedule.
The TCA grant enables the WFMA to
provide valuable art experiences to the community of Wichita Falls, including
an upcoming major show of original prints from Flat Bed Press of Austin, Texas.
In summer 2018, the WFMA will present a major exhibition from the Williford
Foundation Collection of 19th century paintings by American expatriate artists
in Italy, including works by William Merritt Chase, Elihu Vedder, Frank
Duveneck, and Charles Caryl Coleman.
The Arts Create grants provide support
to Texas arts organizations with budgets over $50,000. The TCA has approved 378
Arts Create grants totaling more than $3 million to museums in 75 Texas cities
for fiscal year 2018.
