Artist Ed Ruscha’s archive acquired by Ransom Center
The Ransom Center has acquired the archive of artist Edward Ruscha (b. 1937). The materials reveal Ruscha’s creative process and offer a unique perspective of one of the most influential artists working today.
The Ransom Center has launched a new digital collection, which now includes Lewis Carroll’s photographs, manuscripts by Charlotte and Emily Brontë, Harry Houdini’s scrapbooks, works by artist Frank Reaugh, and items from the Center’s circus collection.
The Ransom Center invites applications for its 2014–2015 research fellowships in the humanities. Applications must be submitted by January 31, 2014. More than 50 fellowships are awarded annually to support projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections.
