11th Annual Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser
6:00 PM18:00

11th Annual Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser

donated time as the event photographer & also artwork

Join us on Saturday, January 12, 2019 for the 11th Anniversary Medici Circle 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser - Where the Wild Beasts Art! at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center on the Texas Tech campus.

Known as one of the most raucous parties of the year, this costume (optional) event brings festive art lovers together annually for food, wine, fun and art to support School of Art scholarships.

Each year an art movement or style from the past informs the evening's theme including the décor, the meal, and most especially as the guest costume theme (which is entirely optional).

This year's theme celebrates the wildly fun and colorful art of Fauvism made famous by French artist practitioners – Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, André Derain and others. They were called "wild beasts" for their vibrant use of color and expressive form. The Fauve's vibrant color has been combined with the wonderfully playful creatures from Maurice Sendak's, Where the Wild Things Are to create this year's theme.

Help-Portrait Lubbock

Very excited to volunteer as a photographer with The AIGA West Texas Future Chapter for Design to participate in Help-Portrait Lubbock this Saturday!

Event Timing: Saturday, December 1, 2018
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Event Address: LHUCA Warehouse, 602 Texas Ave., Lubbock, TX 79401

The goal of Help-Portrait is to find people in need, take their picture, print their picture and then deliver it—free of charge. Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.

The Medici Circle is a Lubbock community volunteer group supporting School of Art through friends-raising and fund-raising for art scholarships. Since 2005, when the group first formed, the Medici Circle has successfully created or augmented nearly $400,000 in art scholarship endowments through membership dues and annual fundraisers.

Medici Circle’s primary annual fundraiser is the much enjoyed 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser. This event provides a delightful mix of art, food, drink, and wild fun during the “art grab.” This year's Coolsville-Rocking the 50s themed party will be held on january 21 2017 at the Lubbock Country Club- save the date. More details coming soon.

This year revenues from Medici Circle endowments provided scholarships to ten graduate and undergraduate scholars in the different areas of study at the School of Art. Because the Medici Circle continues to help create new endowments each year, the numbers and amounts of scholarships have steadily increased since 2008 when the first Medici Circle scholarship made.

Chinati Weekend in Marfa, Texas
to Oct 11

Chinati Weekend in Marfa, Texas

self-portrait, @vbee, at Donald Judd's Pool (Marfa, Chianti Weekend 2014)

Chinati Weekend, Friday – Sunday, October 9 – 11, 2015.

Highlighting the weekend is the opening of a two-person special exhibition of work by Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr, curated by director Jenny Moore.

Chinati’s entire permanent collection as well as special exhibitions will be open to the public, free of charge, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Judd Foundation spaces will also be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, free of charge. Related talks, film screenings, sunrise viewing of works by Donald Judd, a citywide “Made in Marfa” event featuring local creative talent, and a DJ dance party by Chromeo are all free and open to the public as part of the celebration.

Made in Marfa

Artists, galleries, and businesses will host open studios, exhibition openings, mercantile events, and performances beginning at 5:00 pm on Friday evening. Maps and a schedule will be available on-line at the Chinati website; printed versions will be available at the museum front office and locations throughout Marfa.

Artist in Residence Openings

Chinati artists in residence Matt Connors and Ricky Swallow will share their work during the Made in Marfa event, with exhibition openings at the Ice Plant and Locker Plant from 6 – 8:00 pm Friday evening.

Special Exhibition: Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr

Chinati will open a new two-person exhibition of work by Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr to the public on Saturday, October 10. A reception will take place at 11:00 am on the Chinati campus, with brief comments by director Jenny Moore, curator of the exhibition.

This is the first major presentation in an American museum devoted to these artists. Working in Germany in the mid to late 1960s, Posenenske and Roehr developed radical artistic practices utilizing new mediums, materials, and processes. Although associated with the minimalist art movement in Germany and the United States, their work evolved in different artistic directions from their contemporaries, including Donald Judd, Carl Andre, and Dan Flavin, artists in the collection at Chinati with whom Posenenske and Roehr exhibited in Germany in 1967. The exhibition reveals two artists ahead of their time, whose close friendship, like that of several of the artists in the collection at Chinati, impacted and influenced their art.

Collection and Exhibitions

The Chinati Foundation will offer free admission to the museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions on Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. The permanent collection includes work by Carl Andre, Ingólfur Arnarrson, John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Roni Horn, Donald Judd, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, David Rabinowitch, and John Wesley. Special exhibitions include work by Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr, and a long-term installation by Robert Irwin. In addition, installations by artists in residence Matt Connors and Ricky Swallow will be included.


Chinati will host two lectures on Saturday, October 10, beginning at 3:15 pm at the Crowley Theater. Artist Iman Issa will speak on Chinati’s founder, artist Donald Judd, and director Jenny Moore will present on Charlotte Posenenske and Peter Roehr. Reservations are not required.

Support the Chinati Foundation – Benefit Dinner

On Saturday evening, a dinner to benefit Chinati will be held at the Arena. Cocktails will be served beginning at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner catered by Krista Steinhauer and featuring Texas sourced food and drink. Music by Primo Carrasco and David Beebe of Marfa. Tickets for the fundraiser are $500 per person ($400 for members and area residents) and seating is limited. Buy tickets online at our website or call the Chinati Foundation office at 432 729 4362.
