There’s much afoot (beyond the recent FLDS dustup) out in San Angelo: the renowned museum there, which has long specialized in contemporary ceramics, is about to announce a capital endowment drive to fund, among other things, a magnet curriculum that will combine visual art and environmental studies. It will be in conjunction with the local public schools and the Upper Colorado River Authority, and kicks off this summer with a pilot program in which eight students will travel to D.C., work with scientists to do research, then share what they’ve learned through programs and exhibits. Director Howard Taylor is characteristically modest about the project, but hopes that it will become a national model. We’re sure it will.
