The Harry Ransom Center commemorates Tom Lea Month with a lecture on West Texas artists presented by Kenneth Grant and J.P. Bryan.
Grant, head of exhibition services at the Ransom Center,
shares behind-the-scenes insights on the conservation of artist and writer Tom Lea's drawing in "Saving Sarah: The Conservation of Tom Lea's drawing for 'Sarah in the Summertime.'" Then, historian and collector Bryan discusses collaborations between El Paso artists Lea and Jose Cisneros and publisher Carl Hertzog in "Iron Sharpens Iron: The Unique Collaborations of Early El Paso Artists."
The Ransom Center holds the largest single collection of Lea's work.
