    A different kind of royalty

    Three young women race around the living room, trying to find earrings to match the 2016 Princess’s outfit. When the earrings are on, the 2016 Teen Queen runs off to put on her boots, and the 2016 Queen asks her mother where her sash is. Their hair is slightly disheveled, but smoothed down before pictures.

    The Lasting Sting of a WASP

    “You don’t tell a WASP ‘no.’ You don’t tell their family ‘no.’” So says Kimberly Johnson, director of special collections at Texas Woman’s University (TWU) about a special group of women warriors and their very unique challenges. Decades before female pilots were officially allowed in the military, there were Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), civilians […]

    Serving up great beer and good deeds

    It’s a relaxed Wednesday afternoon as people, conversations and craft beer make their way around Eastside. Some patrons mill about, sharing drinks with friends, while others try their luck at the dartboard in the corner. The line to belly up to the bar is full of people, but they don’t mind. Instead, they share drinks […]

    Take a Seat

    Chairy Orchard gives new meaning to resting place A manicured green lot cornered between two houses in a friendly, residential neighborhood holds a Denton treasure. Lining the fences of the bordering houses, hanging from the trees and scattered across the yard are dozens of chairs.    It’s not a big lot, but when you put […]

    Crossroads Tapestry International Exhibit @ UNT on the Square

    Sep 19 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

    Crossroads Tapestry International Exhibit @ UNT on the Square | Denton | Texas | United States

    This exhibit is sponsored by the American Tapestry Alliance which is a non-profit organization supporting the fine art medium of contemporary handwoven since 1982.

    “Crossroads’ is an apt theme for a medium of crossed weft and warp, Crossroads also in a time where even the definition of what is tapestry is more universally ambiguous…Pixels of colored narrative elements assembled into gossamer wings of floating images out of the textile material…What is the important role for tapestry artists today, in a time of electronic communication, how is this ancient medium to be used in a meaningful way. We are just beginning to scratch the surface. There are so many exciting new roads to explore in the expression of warp and weft.”

    -Rudi Dundas (Juror)

    The End and The Beginning @ Visual Arts Building

    Sep 19 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

    The End and The Beginning @ Visual Arts Building | Denton | Texas | United States

    The End and The Beginning
    East | West Galleries, Texas Woman’s University, 9/2/17 – 10/15/17
    Gallery open M-F 9am-4pm
    Curated by Danielle Avram

    The End and The Beginning is part of an ongoing dialogue about the intersections of humanity, technology, spirituality, and the possibility of magic and mythos amidst chaos. This iteration explores the cyclicality of ecosystemic adaptations that derive from responding to continual shifts in physical, emotional, mental, and technological landscapes. At an ever-increasing rate our pasts and presents are written, forgotten, and rewritten in an effort to rectify who we have been and who we are, with who we should be, and what we could become. Yet who we are at any given point in time may simply be the result of adjusting to the aftermath of our predecessors – a point along a continual loop of creation and destruction, a point of no end and no beginning, or a point that is both the end and the beginning. Are we working towards something imperceptibly larger or merely evolving/devolving as dictated by circumstance?

    Featuring works by Morehshin Allahyari, Martin Back, Sean Miller, and Jenny Vogel.

    THE MAGAZINE

    #DENTON: Where Original Meets Independent

    CVB LogoDenton.  Original.  Independent.

    Mull it over for a minute.  Look at the image; think about the words.  What does it mean?  What is it saying?

    This is our brand.  It conveys in a single image the essence of this place:  Denton, Texas.  Understanding our brand is the first step to understanding our vibe.  And tuning to our vibe is the key to unlocking your own uniquely-customized, Denton-centric adventure.

    The word original is a broad application.  It’s more a description of spirit than physical attribute, though the spirit is manifested in the physical fabric of our city.  The creative energy fueled by our universities, arts community, music industry, small business community, the North Texas Horse Country – it drives originality.  Another example of our originality is our vibrant downtown.  It’s the real thing, no faux about it.  We hold fast to our history while progressively moving ahead.  We hold originality in high regard.

    Independent is more of the same spirit and springs from the same attributes as original.  Consider our burgeoning music scene, for instance.  Denton is known around the world for the music movement that’s been organically evolving here for many years.  Interestingly, though, there is not a specific “Denton sound” that anyone can identify in a word.  That is the result of original and independent.  The sound is a combination of individual sounds where writers, musicians, poets and venues have their own messages, rhythms, tunes and atmospheres.  Listeners get the entire breadth, as varied or not as they choose.  And again, in the surrounding horse country, we have the most diverse equine population and disciplines in one area than anywhere else on Planet Earth.  That’s independent, and it results in a lively, energetic culture.

     

    The weathered appearance of the brand is quite intentional.  Think about your favorite pair of jeans.  They’re likely a bit worn-looking, because they are your favorite.  They fit you perfectly, comfortably.  And they wouldn’t fit anyone else in just the same way.  Our brand says that’s how Denton fits too.

    Denton is a place where people come to pursue their passions, and we’ve shared their dreams and journeys for more than 150 years.  You’ll see it in our year-round festivals, museums, galleries and shops.  You’ll taste it in the delectable art of local chefs and unique dining.  You’ll feel it in our vibe.

    Welcome to Denton.  Now get ready for something different, an experience no other has had before, because this one is yours:  Original.  Independent.

    Guests in Denton, like the 128,000 people who choose to live here, have something quite definitive in common: we all seek uniquely customized, Denton-centric adventures in our internationally acclaimed way-cool vibe. We call this vibe original, independent.

    Original is a spirit manifested in the physical fabric of our city. It is creative energy fueled for the past 125 years by our universities, arts community, music industry, business community, the North Texas Horse Country and our vibrant, no-faux-about-it downtown square. We hold originality in high regard.
