Livingston Municipal Library (Lobby Area)

Beginning on July 2, 2018, Livingston Municipal Library will present “The Treasures of Tutankhamun,” an exhibition by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Tutankhamen is the most familiar and popular of ancient Egyptian rulers. When Howard Carter discovered the young Pharaoh’s tomb in 1922, the entire world paid attention. When his treasures toured the United States, unprecedented crowds lined up to view them. Based on the major traveling display, “The Treasures of Tutankhamun” has been reconstructed to tell the story of Tutankhamen as it was told through Carter’s discovery and the related traveling exhibition. “The Treasures of Tutankhamun” promotes a thoughtful comparison of ancient and modern customs concerning death and the afterlife, as well as discussions of political power and the privileges that come with great personal wealth. The exhibition will be available to the public from July 2 to July 28, 2018. The exhibit will be located in the lobby. Viewing hours are from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. Groups and individuals are encouraged to attend at their convenience. Humanities Texas develops and supports diverse programs across the state, including lectures, oral history projects, teacher institutes, traveling exhibitions and documentary films.

During this two-day workshop participants will use The Edge of Imagination Station while working with Johnny Villarreal to create a unique music video. The first part of the workshop will be used to create cardboard props and pieces and plan out the shoot. During the second half students will use the library as the backdrop as we bring the props and the library itself to LIFE using stop motion animation and rotoscope techniques. Rotoscoping is an animation technique where artists trace over footage frame by frame to produce realistic action. Get ready for a hands-on experience of the frame by frame kind! Kids will work on the video from 1pm - 5pm on the 10th and 11am - 3pm on the 11th. Registration for this program will begin on June 21st. Please call the library at 936-327-4252 or email lsantiago@livingstonlibrary.net to sign up for this workshop.
