The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center continues its annual spotlight of area high school students in March with the Youth Art Month show. The 2020 nationwide theme is “Take a Journey Through Art. This will be the 10th year for the museum to participate in the national program.

Art is submitted by the teachers on behalf of their students. A public reception will be 3:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5. All students, their families and other supporters of the program are invited to attend.

Students who are interested in having their work displayed should contact their art teacher. Teachers who would like to submit work can contact Leah Mulkey, CTHC Education Coordinator for details.

There is no cost to the students or schools to participate, or to attend the public reception. Historically, art entries range from 140 to more than 300 pieces of art submitted by more than 100 area art students. Past shows have included mosaics, scratchboard, drawings, collage, paintings and photography. Art teachers are encouraged to follow the theme, but it is not required. If you are a teacher who has never participated in the Heritage Center’s annual show, please contact Leah Mulkey in advance. Space is limited for art display.

The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail
Jul 2 @ 10:00 am – Sep 28 @ 5:00 pm

“The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail” is an installation exhibition by Oklahoma leather artist, Jim Weaver. On display July 2 – Sept. 28, 2020 at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, 1000 Chisholm Trail Pkwy, Duncan, OK 73533

Weaver’s exhibit will feature new work, with nearly a dozen large-scale leather hides displayed in the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s main exhibit room. Extensive research by the artist includes visual and written references of the 1870s cattle drives, drovers’ journals and geography. Using his leather craft skills, Weaver tells a story of history, and how humans are dependent upon the earth.

“Geographically, the scene will begin in San Antonio and end at the railroad stockyards in Abilene, Kansas,” Weaver said. Exhibit details will include the extreme weather conditions faced along the trail, a focus on topography, and more. His work has been featured in The Paseo Arts District, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Gallery, the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Laboratory in Ada since 2016 as part of its 50th anniversary, and most recently in France, among numerous other places. The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition provided Weaver with a funding grant for this exhibit.  To learn more about Weaver, visit his website.
