OPENING OCTOBER 16 AT THE BOB
Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin,
GO WEST: Selections from the Jack S. Blanton
Museum of Art, C.R. Smith Collection reveals
the history and myth of the West through more
than 50 artworks created from 1850 through
the 1970s. The late C.R. Smith, an aviation pio-
neer and chief executive officer at American
Airlines, began collecting Western art in the
1930s, taking his lead from fellow Texans Amon
Carter and Sid Richardson. The artists Smith
admired-Charles Russell, Maynard Dixon,
Thomas Moran, and others-depicted such var-
ied topics as cowboys, miners, soldiers, buffalo
hunters, military conflicts, the Gold Rush, cattle
drives, and picturesque landscapes. GO WEST
closes on January 9. Call 512/936-8746;
FROM SEPTEMBER 18 THROUGH
November 28 at the International Museum of
Art & Science in McAllen, the art of animation
takes center stage in an exhibit called From
Mickey to the Grinch: Art of the Animated
Film. The resume of veteran animator George H.
Nicholas (1910-1996)-who lent his handiwork
and imagination to a lion's share of animation
classics for Disney, MGM, Hanna-Barbera, and
many other studios-includes Fantasia, Cinder-
ella, Sleeping Beauty, Dumbo, Bambi, Pino-
cchio, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady and
the Tramp, and a host of successful animated
features for television.
Fortunately for us, Nicholas also had the col-
lector's bug, and he amassed an astounding
collection of animation cels (painted pieces of
celluloid), drawings, and model study sheets
over his 50-year career. These treasures, along
with a hands-on "animation station," where
museum-goers can animate their own drawings
and clay creations, bring the art of animation to
life-literally (in a figurative kind of way). Call
