The Grace Museum's doors are open, and the safety and well-being of visitors, volunteers, and staff remain their highest priority. As they continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, they are taking many precautions to prevent the spread of germs, including increasing the number of daily cleanings and availability of hand sanitation. Public areas continue to be cleaned daily, and we are increasing the frequency of cleanings throughout high-touch and high-traffic areas. Out of an abundance of caution for our guests, the Children’s Museum on the second floor will be temporarily closed beginning March 16th through the end of the month.
The art of David McManaway (1927-2010) has an underground cult following. Research for this exhibition and numerous conversations with his friends and colleagues tell us that he would be pleased by this state of affairs. But, many McManaway collectors and former colleagues lament the apparent lack of credit his work has received since his passing in 2010. The mission to spotlight McManaway’s life and work in a solo exhibition has officially become a cause célèbre. This exhibition presents a long overdue review of important work from his prodigious 50-year career to reexamine his role as a major artist and influencer in Texas and beyond.
