Traveling is my passion, and I intend to give in to that passion for as long as I live. Is that too mellow dramatic for you? I hope not, because I think I’m in the mood for drama. If only, my husband have more time off every year, then we can travel a lot more and explore other countries that we haven’t been to and visit every single state here in the United States. But, as it is, he only has five weeks off every year, and if we visit two countries for approximately two weeks each, there’s only a week left. I would want him to be off on certain important dates too like our anniversary and birthdays.
Here in the US, I can say, we have already visited an ample number of states. There’s just too many of them more so if you include the US territories. But, as my husband always says, “don’t be too impatient, we will get there.” One state I haven’t been too is Texas. I know of a few people living in Texas. In fact, a family friend and her family are moving to Texas in the Fall. Anyway, should we get the chance to head out to Texas, I would want to see the Stark Museum of Art,the museum that was born out of the vision of H.J. Lutcher Stark and his mother, Miriam Lutcher Stark, that Texas will one day have a museum that would display their vast collection of arts. Both of them are enthusiastic collector of art, furniture, and decorative items from around the world.
I would love to see for myself and explore the exquisite art of the American West. I heard that they housed an extensive collection of such art dating back to the 19th and 20th century. Most of the art collection depicts the American West’s stunning land, diverse wildlife and people. American Indian art I heard, are also housed including glass and porcelain collections, manuscripts and rare books.
The Stark Museum Of Art is an instrument in carrying out the mission of the Stark Foundation, a non-profit corporation in 1961 by H.J. Lutcher Stark and his wife, Nelda C. Stark. It aims to improve the quality of life in Southeast Texas by promoting and assisting education, health and human services.
Admission to the museum is free. This summer it will be a great time to explore the museum. Why not take your family out there and see for yourself how great and vast the collection they have. It will definitely give you more insights about the rich history and culture of the people in the West.
