The exhibit has something for everyone: art lover, literary major, history buff,  film fanatic, and paranormal fans. The diverse exhibit showcases work from authors, artists, actors, a film producer, a photographer as well as a brilliant mind and their creative process.

Browse a beautiful wall of art by Matisse, get inside look at James Joyce’s thought process in composing, literary class, Ulysses; and Einstein’s discovery of the  theory of gravitational waves at the unique exhibit.

The new exhibition even features a case of selected pieces from it’s Mad Men collection. Visitors get a peek at the extreme detail producers went to make the AMC TV classic authentic from scripts to detailed ad proposals. Film fanatics can also see a special exhibit within Stories to Tell  featuring Robert De Niro’s personal collection donated to the Center.

Not only do we get insight into the creative process, but we are able to learn about history with a the Woodward & Bernstein Watergate papers and artifacts like the Gutenberg Bible.

 
The exhibit opened earlier this month and will run through July 16, 2017. Check it out to see all the Harry Ransom Center has to offer!
