MUMentous: The Upsizing of a Texas Tradition


Arlington Museum of Art

The Arlington Museum of Art is pleased to announce the first exhibition associated with its new Artist-in-Residency program, MUMENTOUS: The Upsizing of a Texas Tradition by Amy J. Schultz. This multi-media exhibition will explore a subject matter that is ubiquitously Texan: the long-standing tradition of exchanging mums and garters at high school homecomings. Amy J. Schultz, an artist, writer, and award-winning photographer has spent the last three years studying this unique Texas high school tradition. Rather than focusing solely on the physical characteristics of today's mums -- elaborate silk versions of chrysanthemum corsages from days gone by -- she has explored the driving forces behind the tradition including fan and pop culture through the years, social media, critics, the DIY movement, entrepreneurship and moms.
