Devil’s Rope museum

Like Glasstire, the Dallas Morning News is struggling to corral substantive info this holiday season; today they ran a piece about the Devil’s Rope Museum in McClean,TX. Located in a former bra factory in the former Route 66 town, it’s retired rancher Delbert Trew’s contribution to the life-support of McClean, drawing 100,000 visitors since 1990, or roughly 14 per day! Not to be confused with the barbed wire museum in Lacrosse, Kansas.

  1. Hi, Margaret. The AMOA Art School will be bringing ceramic artists to Austin for the next four years as part of the program launched with Akio Takamori. Emails were sent to ALL area ceramics faculty and sculptors, asking them to alert all their students and email lists; it was included in two 6500 person e-blasts;it was on the cover of the fall Art School catalogue mailed to 10,000; it’s been on our website for months and finally was in a Chronicle ad the week of the event. I’m sorry you didn’t know about it. The workshop and lecture were jam packed. Akio is a wonderful artist and person. It was a great pleasure for us to host him. The idea to bring him was James Tisdales; he’s our artist in residence and head of our ceramics program. He and Akio were at Archie Bray together. AMOA doesn’t have a marketing person right now, so we’re doing the best we can and expanding our email lists all the time; we’d love to have you on it. You can reach me at AMOA-Laguna Gloria if I can provide any further information. Thanks for blogging about this!
    All best,
    Judith Sims
    Sr. Director of Education/AMOA
