The OJAC Focus Lecture Series is a quarterly offering of presentations by artists, speakers and historians on a variety of social, cultural and historical topics ranging from the visual arts to community and Texas History.


Katie Robinson Edwards, the curator of the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum in Austin and author of Midcentury Modern Art in Texas was at the OJAC to share insights about midcentury Texas art, specifically highlighting the artists of The Fort Worth Circle. The OJAC is home to the largest public collection of works from artists of The Fort Worth Circle - a group of artists that became teachers, university faculty and mentors to a new generation of Texas artists.
