ARTS For Rural Texas not only cultivates children’s creativity, it motivates adults to innovate tomorrow’s future through art.
The Spectrum Lecture Series motivates adults to increase their knowledge of the arts, through lectures presented by local and renowned artists.
Through the Spectrum Lecture Series, ARTS elevates the quality of life and enables adults to immerse themselves in learning the history and future of arts and technology.
The ARTS Spectrum Lecture Series has returned!
Our first speaker will be FAIA architect Don Swofford, who will discuss historic Fayetteville, 1970 - 2020.
Don Swofford, FAIA, with over fifty years of experience in the field of Historic Preservation, was a pioneer in that movement. His elevation by the American Institute of Architects to Fellowship was based on his outstanding practice and dedication to Historic Preservation, with particular acknowledgement of his work restoring the Courthouse in Virginia designed by Thomas Jefferson.
In his student years at Texas A&M College of Architecture, his thesis project was a conservation and preservation study for Fayetteville, Texas.
Jon Kucera and his wife Veronica Steffek, immigrants from Moravia to Ellinger-Fayetteville in 1872, are Don’s maternal great grandparents.
Mr. Swofford's lecture will focus on the changes in historic Fayetteville, specifically of the architectural variety, from 1970 through 2020.
As always, the Spectrum Lecture program is free.
However, seating is limited, so please reserve your spot ahead of time.
