Reinterpreting Texas at the Witte Museum, Where Nature, Science and Culture Meet

Planning for a reinterpretation of the museum’s permanent exhibition on the history of Texas.

The Witte Museum seeks a $75,000 Public Humanities Projects Planning Grant to support the reinterpretation, reimagining, planning and concept design for a new permanent exhibition, Tejas to Texas, a presentation on what we now call Texas. The current exhibition, A Wild and Vivid Land: Stories of South Texas, prototyped in 2006 and opened in 2012, is the permanent exhibition for the Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg South Texas Heritage Center. Since then, the Witte’s award-winning South Texas Heritage Center has welcomed over 2.5 million visitors. As the Witte prepares for the Center’s 10th anniversary, the museum has embarked on a reexamination of the central exhibition, armed with goals for reinterpretation derived from community conversations and new scholarship.
