SAMFA Collectors Society Lecture
Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 5:30 pm in the Meeting Room of the Art Museum Program Title: Life and Death on the Spanish Frontier: The History and Archaeology of San Saba and El Canon Lecture by: Tamra L. Walter, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Archaeology Texas Tech University Dr. Walter will discuss the pivotal events that unfolded at San Saba and how these events led to the establishment of the Lipan Apache missions at El Canon and a receding frontier. Both historical and archaeological data will be used to recreate the story of both the San Saba and El Canon ill-fated projects and to highlight the international and local influences that shaped this frontier experience.
Each year the Museum's Collectors Society sponsors a Lecture Series that is both stimulating and informative. Our guest speakers ---- experts in areas that are relevant to our exhibits and the greater community --- come to San Angelo and make a public presentation. Afterwards members of the Collectors Society join the invited speaker for an enjoyable meal in a fine area restaurant, which is a wonderful opportunity to meet and converse with our distinguished guests on a more informal basis.
Dues for membership in the Collectors Society are $100 per person, per year. These dues assist the museum in purchasing works of art for its permanent collection. In addition members pay for the cost of their personal meal if they join us for dinner. Everyone is welcome to join the Collectors Society and help the Museum's collection grow. 2018-2019 Lecture Series (sponsored by the FMH Foundation, Midland) The Lectures are FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments provided.
