Texas is an art lover's paradise. More than one hundred venues located within the state welcome visitors to experience the visual arts. These include internationally recognized collections such as the Chinati Foundation, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Menil Collection, and the Nasher Sculpture Center; renowned encyclopedic institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the San Antonio Museum of Art; and dozens of first-rate art centers, alternative spaces, and university galleries. In addition to delighting the eye with a wide-ranging assortment of exhibitions, many of these museums and galleries are housed within architectural gems. To enhance the reader's visits to familiar destinations and to encourage the exploration of lesser-known venues, Art Guide Texas presents the only in-depth survey devoted exclusively to the state's nonprofit visual arts institutions. Rebecca Cohen organizes the book regionally. Individual entries for museums and galleries give essential contact information, including phone numbers and Web sites, as well as a description of the collection(s) and past exhibitions, a brief history of the institution, significant architectural details about the building, and assorted practical tips. Black-and-white photographs accompany many of the entries, as well as notable quotes on art and architecture. In addition, Cohen's essays on the phenomenal late-twentieth-century growth of the arts in Texas and on arts activity in the different regions of the state provide a helpful context for exploring the arts in Texas.

This book introduces the reader to the visible memorabilia of science and scientists in all the five boroughs of New York City - statues, busts, plaques, buildings, and other artifacts. In addition, it extends to some scientists and institutions currently operating in the city. New York has been known as a world center of commerce, finance, communications, transportation, and culture, but it also is a world center in science. The city is home to renowned universities and research laboratories, a museum of natural history and other museums related to science, a science academy, historical societies, botanical gardens and zoos, libraries, and a Hall of Science as well as a large number of world-renowned scientists. The book pays special attention to the role of this city in welcoming persecuted scientists and letting African-American and women scientists thrive. The book is presented in an informative and entertaining way, dotted with scientific gossip and anecdotes, and can be enjoyed even without the reader's actual presence in the city. Over eight hundred photographs illustrate the book. They may induce the reader to make their own discoveries in New York.

During the 1930s in the United States, the Works Progress Administration developed the Federal Writers’ Project to support writers and artists while making a national effort to document the country’s shared history and culture. The American Guide series consists of individual guides to each of the states. Little-known authors—many of whom would later become celebrated literary figures—were commissioned to write these important books. John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ralph Ellison are among the more than 6,000 writers, editors, historians, and researchers who documented this celebration of local histories. Photographs, drawings, driving tours, detailed descriptions of towns, and rich cultural details exhibit each state’s unique flavor. Although it is a slim volume, the WPA Guide to Tennessee is packed with useful and interesting information. There are sections on folklore and the state’s architectural and literary legacies as well as an essay on the Tennessee Valley Authority. There are 16 driving tours in total, through both the Volunteer State’s several major cities and the natural wonder of the Great Smokey Mountains Natural Park.

Urban conditions are crucial to our experience of modernity, and, as reflected by art, literature and popular culture, have influenced contemporary ideas of what urban life is about. The Urban Lifeworld contributes to our understanding of the cultural role of cities by offering new insight into the analysis of urban experience. Two exceptional cities, New York and Copenhagen, are the focus of this exploration of cultural representations of urban life, which investigates the contrasts between perceptions and formation of the urban lifeworld. Integrating sociological, aesthetic and anthropological approaches to urban questions, this collection of essays presents a new vision of the cityscape which will enrich both academic debate and public life.
