The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture showcases the natural history, fine art, and unique heritage of the Texoma region in one special exhibition. Participating museums are part of the Regional Museum Network, designed to increase the visibility of museums in the region.

Regional Museum Network exhibitions have been made possible in part with support from The Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation, The Summerlee Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Sunsational Tales: Texas Summers Through Time explores “hot” topics and area traditions; from the evolution of summer jobs and recreation, along with the blazing advancements in fashion, technology, and more. 

Each participating museum unravels tales from summers gone by and presents them in a way that resonates with visitors today. This exhibition sparks a sense of nostalgia and encourages audiences to consider what summers of the future may look like.

Real to Reel: North Texas in the Limelight showcases curated collections from 12 area museums highlighting cinematic history in the region and its impact on area communities.  

The exhibition explores our region’s many connections to Hollywood in one location. From famous stuntmen and actors to filming locations, historic theaters, and more. Real to Reel separates fact from fiction and explores the impact of the film industry across North Texas.

Your Museums: Multiple Faces, Many Stories, One Passion exhibition explores why communities find and sustain museums and why objects are important. Objects and narratives give insight into the rich resources and quality of life offered by the museums of this region and the people who preserve these riches for future generations

Engaging with original objects is experiential. It encourages close observation and connects the past and present. The examination of an object includes the object, the maker, and you.

Origin Stories from the Regional Museum Network offers the opportunity to see sample exhibitions from the collections of area museums.

This multi-layered exhibition gives the public a view of area museums as more than collectors – but as active resources in our communities that spark new ideas, preserve elements of creativity, and share stories of our collective past.
