Location: Lubbock, Texas
Status: Under construction

The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences brings a world-class facility to west Texas and is named for Lubbock’s most famous son, the ’50s pop legend whose brief career inspired generations of musicians and fans. A diverse range of stakeholders, including Ballet Lubbock, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, the local school district, two universities, and a Broadway promoter, ensure Buddy Holly Hall will be a vital and dynamic center of performing arts. The mixed-use facility is versatile and flexible to accommodate large touring musicals as well as intimate dance performances. It will facilitate education, banquets and be acoustically adaptable for any musical genre.

Featured amenities of this hybrid performance venue include a 2,200-seat main theater, 425-seat studio theater, 6,000 squares feet multi-purpose room, and a bistro cafe. An inviting lobby with a dramatic helical staircase welcomes a relaxed formality for a night out in a lively  complex that feels right either in jeans and boots or in suits and gowns. The project is a catalyst for downtown Lubbock revitalization.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
