In Company with Angels: Seven Rediscovered Tiffany Windows

Daily

2nd floor, MSC, Forsyth Galleries, College Station, Texas
In Company with Angels: Seven Rediscovered Tiffany Windows showcases the stained glass artistry of Louis Comfort Tiffany. The windows were commissioned for Cincinnati’s Church of the New Jerusalem in 1902, and feature seven angels who represent seven churches. In 1964, the church was demolished and the windows were packed away and forgotten until 2001, when they were rediscovered. Under the skilled direction of stained glass expert Arthur Femenella, the windows were restored in 2004 to their original majesty. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a magnificent exhibition!

Cloth as Community: Hmong Textiles in America

Daily

1st floor, MSC, Stark Galleries, College Station, Texas
A Program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance with The Texas Commission on the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts

Hmong paj ntaub (flower cloth) is one of the world’s great textile traditions, yet this complex art wasn’t widely known outside of Asia until the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Hmong refugees arrived in the United States in the late 1970s, bringing the needlework skills and cultural knowledge that had been passed down in cloth for generations. This exhibition presents 28 textiles created by Hmong women in the United States, including designs derived from traditional paj ntaub and the embroidered story cloth form that developed in Thai refugee camps.

Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery

All Day

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
George Bush was a successful and pioneering Texas oilman, first on land and then offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. As a tribute to his role in the development and use of the innovative independent leg offshore jack-up rig Scorpion launched by LeTourneau in 1956, the exhibit tells the story of offshore drilling. It focuses on the history, development and future of offshore drilling, with an emphasis on the work of George Bush, emerging technologies and ongoing research at Texas A&M University.



With Shell as title sponsor and supporting sponsorships from Ensco, Schlumberger and Move Resource Group, the exhibit covers all aspects of the search for oil offshore, with a special look at the geology of finding oil, focusing on exploration of the Gulf of Mexico. Industry pioneers recount their personal experiences. Visitors will be taken from start to finish — developing the "play" to platform production — via an interactive display.



A video wall highlights careers and life on board a rig. See models of the various rigs, platforms and supply vessels that are used in the industry, and pieces of drilling equipment. Additional exhibits feature Smart Gulf and Scientific Research from Texas A&M University.



Expertise for the exhibit has been provided by our partnerships with The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum; Texas A&M University through the College of Geosciences, Petroleum Engineering, Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, Department of Oceanography and Offshore Technology Research; LeTourneau University and PennWell.
