The story is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser; an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

KTTZ-TV Movie Screening: Minor Injustice

KTTZ-TV Movie Screening: Minor Injustice

Attend this movie screening and hear the announcement of the 2019 Flatland Film Festival films!

Texas is now one of only 3 states that charges 17 year olds as adults. During the 2017 legislative session there were two bills being introduced that addressed this issue. One to raise the age of adult prosecution from 17 to 18, and the other would allow people currently in prison for a crime committed before the age of 18 a chance at early parole. Right now Texas sentencing laws ignore recent scientific evidence on adolescent development and neuroscience, and the state’s current parole system provides no viable mechanism for reviewing a case after a young person has grown up and matured. Can we morally keep sending our youth to adult prisons?

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Wayne Thiebaud

Wayne Thiebaud (born November 15, 1920)

Best known for his images of food, Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings usually focused on single objects often found in everyday life. While the majority of American Pop artists came from New York, Thiebaud worked primarily in California, creating art that stands apart from the other artists of his time. In his later career Thiebaud would expand to include a diversity of subject matters, including landscapes and portraiture, all created in his unique style. Join us as we examine the work Thiebaud and compare it to that of other Pop artists from the same period.

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Philip Guston

Philip Guston (June 27, 1913 – June 7, 1980)

Emerging from the New York School of Abstraction, Guston’s art showed the transition from Abstract Expressionism into more realistic forms of subject painting. Creating his own style of realism that uses a cartoonish style of figures, Guston’s images were also biographic, with many focusing on the artist’s own life. Guston’s work has been seen as a bridge between the non-objective art of the 1950s and the object-fixated ideas of Pop art that would follow.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Grandma Moses and Grandma Layton

This lecture will focus two twentieth-century American women who began their art careers later in their lives. Anna Moses, also known as Grandma Moses, began painting at the age of 78, and her paintings have become synonymous with the folk-art style in America. Achieving fame during her lifetime, Grandma Moses’s art was published in multiple magazines: her paintings adorn postage stamps and are featured in the collection of the White House. Elizabeth Layton, also known as Grandma Layton, began her art career at age 68, when she took a drawing class. Grandma Layton’s unique drawings have been widely collected in her native Kansas and also nationwide with pieces owned by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Join us as we explore the life and work of these two American women artists.
