The mural, commissioned by the local
chapter of the American Association of
University Women, was unveiled Jan. 21
at its home, the Abilene Civic Center. The
510,000 exhibit traced the cityls buffalo-
roaming beginning to its oil-spouting
Students had the opportunity to study
the techniques of well-known artists when
the department displayed several promi-
nent exhibits in the Virginia Shore Art
The most significant collection was a
28-piece showing of American Abstract
Expressionist Paintings that Norman
Whitefield, gallery director and art pro-
fessor, called "the most important exhibi-
tion we have had."
The exhibit, sponsored by the Sarah
Campbell Blaffer Foundation in Houston,
was by leading post-World War II artists.
Whitefield said these artists established
the first American school of art and caused
the center of the art world to move from
Paris to New York.
Green said the exhibit was one of the
most prominent displays to come not only
to ACU but also to Abilene.
"The paintings were by a group of art-
ists who were the 'masters of the old
masters' of contemporary American art,"
Green said. "It isn't often that we are able
to have an exhibit of such significance in
Another display that sparked the in-
terest of Abilene art-lovers was the
September show of Florida artist Ray
Green said Burggrafs large, colorful
acrylic paintings were based on his impres-
sions of places and experiences.
Twenty art majors were graduating
seniors, which caused several departmental
changes, Green said.
"The increase in the number of seniors
in the program was not a reflection of in-
creasing enrollment, but some students
finished late, others finished early and
some graduated on schedule," he said.
The more than double number of seniors
caused the doubling up of senior shows in
the Shore Art Gallery, Green said.
Another change was that the seven
studios assigned to graduating seniors had
to accommodate three students instead of
the usual one or two students.
However, Green said these changes
didn't cause problems in the department,
although some students were disappointed
not to have a solo art show.
"But on the other hand, it created
stronger shows because the students had to
limit their list of works to their best crea-
tions," he said.
Full-time faculty members were given
the opportunity to show their work to the
community when they participated in a
series of lectures sponsored by the Abilene
Fine Arts Museum. Faculty members
spoke about their latest creations and
discussed the techniques used.
Green said classroom activities stressed
creativity, and students were encouraged
to express their thoughts and feelings.
