This week’s #SiteOfTheWeek is a series of eight archaeological sites, both pre-Columbian and historic, that are located in west-central Brazos County! This drawing shows a cross-section depicting changes in the physical and cultural landscape over time. ___ Don’t forget to attend the ARC-TAMU's lecture on October 29th presented by Dr. Alston Thoms if you’re interested in learning more about the Native History of the Brazos Valley!https://www.facebook.com/events/236809913679138/ ____ All eight sites were excavated as part of a cultural resource management project (CRM) compliance project during construction on the Texas A&M University’s Animal Science Teaching and Research Complex (ASTRC). The CRM project occurred from 1991-1993 and was directed by Dr. Alston Thoms for the Center for Ecological Archaeology, a previous iteration of the ARC-TAMU. During survey, archaeologists identified and later tested eight sites - three were deemed “historic” (i.e. post-European contact), three were “prehistoric” (i.e. pre-European contact, sometimes referred to as "pre-Columbian") and two sites included both prehistoric and historic elements. Together, the sites show that this part of the Brazos Valley was occupied multiple times, spanning from 8,000 years before present (yrs. BP) until the late 19th century and mid 20th century, when land was granted to Anglo American settlers under the Austin Colony land grants. Artifacts uncovered include prehistoric stone projectile points, remnants of the stone tool manufacture process (e.g lithic cores, flakes etc.), ceramics, and fire-cracked rock, as well as historic agricultural tools, and historic metal, ceramics, and glass.
Vintage industrial exhibit signage. This tractor took one for the collection and sacrificed itself to the sticky hands and damaging blows of hyped up children.

🐦🦅🐧🐔🐥 Bird Bones!🐥🐔🐧🐦🦅 . . . Birds need to be amazingly light to help them defy gravity and fly. 🌀 🦅 🌀 You may have heard that they have hollow bones... which it somewhat true. Their bones are pneumatic and have this beautiful structures call struts that allow the bone to be incredibly strong with a high density. . 🐔🌀🐦 The bones here are fragments from a Tundra Swan! . . . #museumscience #science #femalescientist #naturalhistorymuseum #naturalhistory #biology #zoology #birds #swan #bones #brokenbones #collections #museumcollection #scienceeducation
The last two days have been spent focusing on polishing many of the trophies. It takes some elbow grease but the results are so rewarding. . . . . #itm_intern #musuemintern #museum #museumcollection #collections #restoration #cleaning #silver #polish #racingtrophy #trophy

Just a stone throw away from Poznań, Poland lies Puszczykowo, that was home to Arkady Fiedler. He was a Polish writer, traveler and adventurer. He travelled all over the world bringing various artifacts (souvenirs?) from his travels. Today, his home houses a museum devoted to his writing and traveling run by his son and grandson. When I was a child I loved visiting this mysterious house, filled with piranha, stuffed animals, colourful butterflies and dusty maps. Not sure if visiting the museum inspired me to travel, but I like to think that it did. ° ° ° ° #travel #poland #polska #wielkopolska #adventurer #museum #puszczykowo #museumcollection #arkadyfiedler #arkadyfiedlermuseum #butterflies #adventuresofthepast #travelIng #museumday #memories #retrotravel

Kalup Linzy is a video and performance artist who is a recipient of numerous awards including grants from the Tiffany and Guggenheim Foundations and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Film. Linzy’s best known works are an on-going series of videos that satirize the conventions of the day time soap opera. These theatrical works challenge the ideas of gender while embracing other pop cultural forms such as drag performances. In them he has developed a large range of characters based on stereotypical Hollywood figures and often performs them himself. His performance videos are in the collections of The Studio Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This past summer at the Art Omi Residency I collaborated with @kaluplinzy on his first monotypes. These prints, based on characters from his recent videos, depict “Ozara and Katessa” in which he performs alongside James Franco, and “Joshua Justin Queen and KK Queen” in which he plays both characters. Both Monotypes will be exhibited in the @anthonykirkeditions booth at the upcoming E/AB Fair @eabfair @art_omi @stuartcomer @themuseumofmodernart @whitneymuseum . . . #kaluplinzy #anthonykirkeditions #eabfair #eabfair2018 #monotype #monotypes #artomi #nycart #nycartist #ozaraandkatessa #kkqueen #joshuajustinqueen #performanceart #moma #museumcollection #whitneymuseum #brooklyn #brooklynartist #metropolitanmuseumofart #jamesfranco #soapopera #asdaartworldmightturn #videoart #akuainks #drag #artresidency #printmaking #actor #artist #thespian
We had a great time putting on Archaeology Day this past Sunday with @brandeis_clarcinterns and @brandeismakerlab !

Chelsea sunflower dish, c. 1755, of moulded form, with stalk loop handle; these dishes usually have a red anchor mark to base. This example is at the Gardiner Museum but a set of 6 can also be seen at Burghley House in Lincolnshire. Another variation of this pattern is also on display in the V&A in London. #chelsea #chelseapottery #englishceramics #antiqueceramics #antique #art #museumcollection
*Black-footed Ferrets* 🖤 🐾 🖤 ~Happy Mammal Monday~ . . These weasels are the only native ferret in North America. They were driven to the brink of extinction in the 1960s. With 17 individuals, the population is making a comeback! 🖤 🐾 🖤 But instead of talking about them... let’s talk about their genes and why this relates to those cuties in the museum drawer. 🐾 🐾 🐾 Black-footed Ferrets are struggling from an intense population bottleneck. This mean much of their trait variation is lost due to their near extinction. This leads to a founder effect where a small number of colonizing individuals have a decreased ability to adapt to the species’ environment. 🐾 🐾 🐾 Think of this like making a meal. If you have the whole grocery store to chose from then you can make a much better dish than if you were just using what you have in the fridge. 🐾 🖤 🐾 It’s important to track this change! These specimens were collected before the bottleneck event which means we can compare their DNA with living individuals to see how the genes change! . . . This post was a long time coming. I hope you understand it! . . . **This specimen is preserved at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology and is used for research purposes** . #museumscience #science #naturalhistorymuseum #museumcollection #zoology #mammalmonday #femalescientist #scienceeducation #blackfootedferret #ferret #mammal #genes

On the eighth floor of the tower attached to Victoria’s @RoyalBCMuseum , through a maze of shelves and cabinets, curator of history Tzu-I Chung slowly slides open a drawer containing a rare piece of history. “This is a Canadian treasure, but I can’t really get it out because it’s chipping away,” she says, delicately lifting one end of the poster-sized piece of plaster out of its Styrofoam cradle like she’s handling a newborn.

Repairing my sweater this weekend got me thinking about home sewing, particularly this piece I came across this summer. Betty Lou Oberg was a masters student at Michigan State University who went on to become a sewing teacher. She regularly made her own clothing and donated several pieces to the @msumuseum before her death. My favorite is this tweed suit made from a vogue pattern. . . . #voguepatterns #vintagevogue #vintagesewing #sewinggeek #sewingnerd #vintagesuit #vintageclothing #museumcollection #sopretty #iwanttowearit #homesewing #handsewing #fashionhistory #historyoffashion #costumehistory #sewingteacher

After the Second World War, the private aid organisation CARE („Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe“) from the USA sends food packages to Europe to help the suffering population. This piece of soap can also be found in the CARE packages. A very suitable object from our museum’s collection – because today is the international hand washing day. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg schickt die private Hilfsorganisation CARE („Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe“) aus den USA Lebensmittel-Pakete nach Europa, um der notleidenden Bevölkerung zu helfen. In den CARE-Paketen ist auch dieses Stück Seife zu finden. Ein besonders passendes Objekt aus unserer Sammlung – denn heute ist internationaler Hände-Waschtag.

Have you visited the exhibition 'Eblouissante Venise. Venise et les Arts de l¹Europe au XVIIIe siècle' at the Grand Palais yet? You may have spotted the painting on the right, 'Sketch for the ceiling of the Banque Royale: Unloading goods from Louisiana on the banks of the Seine' by Gianantonio Pelligrini (1675-1741). To the great dismay of his French rivals, it was the Venetian painter, admired throughout Europe for his virtuosity and the lightness of colours, who in 1720 received the commission to paint the ceiling of the boardroom in the new Banque Royale. . Galerie Canesso is proud to have been able to sell this unique sketch to the Petit Palais, musée des Beaux-arts de la Ville de Paris in 2015. . . #galeriecanesso #grandpalais #petitpalais #museumcollection #artexhibition #italianart #venetianartist #oldmasters #oldmasterpaintings #sellingart #banqueroyale #eblouissantevenise #artinparis #gianantoniopelligrini #italianoldmasters #parisgallery #parisartgallery #galerieparisienne #18thcenturyart #arthistory #artexpert #oldmastergallery

Finally got a drawing done for #inktober ...14 days into October. Not sure if 'better late than never' covers me here, but drawing something everyday this month based on a different prompt is apparently a greater challenge than I can meet. Today's prompt is "CLOCK", so here's a drawing of a Buddhist stupa I saw in the @ashmoleanmuseum yesterday, surrounded by liana vines that I spent a good part of my degree surveying in Malaysia about three years ago. Based on today's prompt I wanted to draw something really old, and something representing some of the things that made me happy just a few years ago - rainforests, the natural world, and the immense diversity and complexity within it. I spent a fair bit of this year doing things I thought would make me happy but didn't. Now at the wise old age of 23, I've learnt what I like doing. I'm working out the most fulfilling ways to spend my time, and I don't want to waste any of it. The clock's ticking, and I'm using that to give me some much needed perspective.✏️⏱️⌚ ---------------------------------------------------- #inktober #illustration #artwork #museum #vines #rainforest #stupa #museumcollection #leaves #ecosystems #lianas #geography #nature #fineliner #handdrawn #arty #perspective #digitalcolouring #inktober2018 #clock #drawing #sketching #malaysia #drawingprompt #sunday #artandculture #graphicdesign #yourenotthatold #thisisnthatdeep

Hello! Last day of my #telegramtakeover - @giopetrocchi
Polymita are big land snails endemic to Cuba. Because their shells have bright colours and distinctive white and brown stripes, poachers collect them for jewelry and trinkets. The species is highly endangered, any type of collection needs authorisation by the cuban government. They are strictly granted only for scientific use or for animal protection causes. . . . . . #snail #shellsunday #animal #nmbern #naturhistorischesmuseum #science #nature #naturalhistory #museumcollection #naturalhistorymuseum #museumspass #bern #berne #ilovebern #myswitzerland

As with several of his contemporaries at the Royal Mint in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, James Morrison followed his father in pursuing a career at the Mint, and in his case he actually succeeded to his father’s post of Deputy Master. The painting illustrated here by George Clint hangs in the Mint Museum and depicts the studied intelligence and sympathetic manner of Morrison that is so apparent from the way in which he ran the affairs of the Mint. The position he occupied during most of the first half of nineteenth century was effectively that of a chief executive, running many aspects of the Mint and answering to the Master who at this time tended to be a senior politician. He stood at the centre of affairs during a time of significant change when many of the old practices were abandoned and he emerges as man who commanded the deepest respect from those around him. #RoyalMintuk #DeputyMaster #JamesMorrison #chiefexecutive #art #artwork #artist #painting #GeorgeClint #royalmintmuseum #museum #collection #museumcollection

Louis Comfort Tiffany—son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, the jewelry and luxury goods merchant who built Tiffany & Co. into an empire—only produced a few hundred pieces of his art jewelry. The “peacock” necklace, c. 1903–6, is the most significant example in the Museum’s collection and arguably the designer's most important existing work in the medium. The front medallion features a peacock mosaic of opals and enamels surrounded by amethysts and sapphires. Other stones include ruby, demantoid garnet, emerald, chrysoberyl, and pearl. The reverse side (swipe left) depicts flamingos in enamel. The peacock necklace, currently on view, was exhibited at the 1906 Société des Artistes Français in Paris. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #louiscomforttiffany #peacocks #necklace #jewelry #beautiful #design #fashionfriday #morsemuseum #gildedage #artjewellery #fashionjewelry #enamels #museumcollection #artnouveau
