Amarillo Museum of Art

Thanks to Alex Gregory, curator at the Amarillo Museum of Art, for stopping by High Plains Morning to remind folks that the annual Ladd Lecture is happening this week. This year, they're welcoming back Dr. Richard Brettell with a lecture that takes attendees on an unforgettable journey through the history of one of the world's most iconic museums, the Louvre.

Hear no moola. See no moola. Speak no moola. High Plains Morning was thrilled to host the brilliant, dollar-choppin' collage artist Mark Wagner and Amarillo's own Alex Gregory, Curator at Amarillo Museum of Art today on High Plains Morning. The new exhibition, Cut Up/Cut Out, has an opening reception TONIGHT (Friday, July 19th) from 6:30-8:30pm at AMoA (2200 S. Van Buren); Mark's hosting an artist talk at 7:15 pm.

On Saturday, August 13th, High Plains Public Radio & the Amarillo Art Institute invite kids of the High Plains to CHASE THE SUNSET with a celebration of art, music, and nature to bid the summer a final farewell.

 When I say “Cheech,” most people think “…and Chong.” Right?  But Cheech Marin – the actor, director, counter-culture humorist, and musician, who began his career as the lovable stoner cruising around East LA with his blissed-out buddy Tommy Chong – is more than just a Hollywood comedy icon. Those in the art world have known it for a while, but Cheech has been amassing one of the world’s foremost private collections of Chicano art for almost 40 years. Thanks to efforts by the Amarillo Museum of Art, now our region is able to experience this unprecedented collection firsthand.
