Free Bullock Museum Exhibition of Texas Furniture

Hi Artisans,

We will be gathering at 11:45 at the main entrance of the museum so that we can go in as a group.  There will be experts on furniture design and woodworking available to discuss the pieces in the collection as we go.  Late comers will probably be able to catch up with the group.  Look for a baloon.

Mark your calendar for Austin Museum Day on Sunday, September 22, 2013. Admission to the Bullock Museum will be free all day – from noon to 6pm. Special family activities are planned from noon to 3pm as part of this year's Austin Museum Day – a free, city-wide rediscovery of Austin museums sponsored by the Austin Museum Partnership. The event provides families with a unique opportunity to enjoy local exhibits and activities at more than 40 participating institutions at no charge. Visit the Austin Museum Partnership for more information on this event.  (Text is from the web site)

Before the rise of imported factory-made furniture in the 1880s, most Texans bought home furnishings from their local cabinetmaker. Texas furniture in the 19th century reflects the history and culture of those times, the isolation of the state, and the changes wrought by the coming of the railroads. Enter this bygone era through the stories that every handmade table, chair, and bed have to share in a new exhibition, Texas Furniture From The Ima Hogg Winedale Collection at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. The Winedale Collection is part of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, at the University of Texas at Austin. The exhibition will run July to October 2013, at the Bullock Museum.  (Text is from the web site)
