Stories to Tell: Selections from the Harry Ransom Center

Exhibition Website

Feb 6 2017 - Jul 16 2017

The Ransom Center presents stories of inspiration, adaptation, innovation, confrontation, collaboration, and frustration—all selected from its extensive cultural collections. The rich holdings highlight the struggles, the complexity, and the rewards of creative work in literature, art, photography, film, and the performing arts.

This exhibition of more than 250 items includes, among many others, manuscripts of David Foster Wallace, Julia Alvarez, and Gabriel García Márquez, Henri Matisse's Jazz, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Ouija board and spirit photographs, and the hat that accompanied the green curtain dress worn by Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind.
