These intricate and bright pieces are silk scarves depicting horses and other horse-related imagery.A single name stitched into the corner of each – Hermès – marks them as high fashion pieces.The colorful collection is part of a larger exhibition, “It’s Never Just a Horse,” and represents how the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring Western women is about more than horses and trick riding. Photo: The scarves line the stairwell in the museum.

Kleberg has led a storied career in and around ranch work, and made the scarf as a way to highlight some of the conservation efforts she has been involved in. Kleberg worked with Waco, Texas native and the sole American designer for Hermès, Kermit Oliver, for six years on the scarf. As an avid conservation advocate, Kleberg wanted to create a scarf  that would highlight protecting the Laguna Madre of the Texas Coast.Hermès dedicated a portion of the proceeds of the limited-edition scarf to the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute to purchase technology that helps measures annual migrations. That information is then shared with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, according to the Cowgirl Museum.Photo: Janell Kleberg’s scarf in collaboration with Kermit Oliver (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Colorful scarf depicts beautiful horse imagery (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Colorful scarf depicts beautiful horse imagery (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Janell Kleberg’s scarf in collaboration with Kermit Oliver (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Janell Kleberg’s scarf in collaboration with Kermit Oliver (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Collection of Hermès scarves decorate the walls of the lefthand stairwell (Photo by Amanda Vasquez)Along with Kleberg’s unique piece, the other scarves in the exhibit also have a unique design, color selection and significance that all highlight the value of the horse.“The 16 scarves chosen for this stairwell represent the various partnerships and intersections of the horse, the land and people,” according to the Cowgirl Museum. “You can find elements of the many ways horses have been viewed as partner, competition, muse or simply as an object of beauty, because It’s Never Just a Horse.” Photo: Colorful scarf depicts beautiful horse imagery (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Colorful scarf depicts beautiful horse imagery (Photo courtesy of the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX)Photo: Collection of Hermès scarves decorate the walls of the righthand stairwell (Photo by Amanda Vasquez)Photo: Collection of Hermès scarves decorate the walls of the righthand stairwell (Photo by Amanda Vasquez)This exhibition not only tells the story of the horse, but also the rich history of Hermès.In 1800’s France, the now high fashion company began as a tack company. Wanting to serve customers a wider range of products, the company expanded into selling luxury goods, such as scarves. Each piece goes through a meticulous production process.The elegance, colors, design and sheer size of these Hermès scarves is truly captivating. Madison Ward, public engagement manager at the Cowgirl Museum, explained that executive director Pat Riley came up with the idea to house these scarves. It’s no wonder these scarves are treasured by the Cowgirl Museum and their guests.Amanda Vasquez is a junior journalism major, writing minor at TCU. She is from Westlake Village, California.

The Challenges of Being a Student Athlete

first_img Business News The student who is primarily focused on the “being an athlete” part of the college experience may experience difficulties. Scholarships R Us, which helps students find colleges that meet their academic and athletic needs, wants to make students aware of the most common problems student-athletes face.1. Time (mis) management – student-athletes have a lot on their plate. Sure, we all have plenty to balance, but for an 18 to 22 year old, managing this “practice-class-life” balance can be more than a formidable challenge.2. Motivation – Motivation can be an academic killer and sadly, some athletes look at academics as the necessary evil. While some manage to navigate through the fog of classes with enough focus to remain eligible for scholarships, others forget or entirely fail to realize the true purpose of their scholarship. The problem is not always a lack of care, but rather a lack of the background needed to understand the importance of their progress towards a degree.3. Lack of organization – We often take organization for granted, as we understand its importance in doing things efficiently and effectively. Student-athletes, however, haven’t been exposed to the pressures they face at this level, nor have they experienced the relief that being organized can provide. This can be keeping notes in separate notebooks or simply knowing how many study hall hours they’ve completed this week. These small things pile up and become overwhelming for student-athletes who aren’t used to balancing the demands that come with the student-athlete title.4. Communication – this is probably the most obvious and definitely the most common reason. It’s last on this list because it affects each area in which student-athletes struggle. There are several channels of communication and multiple parties with whom student-athletes must communicate. Communication alone is a struggle that can knock down even the most capable of student-athletes.For more information on Scholarships R Us visit http://scholarshipsrus.com/. 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  HerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Trends To Look Like An Eye-Candy And 6 To Forget AboutHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeauty Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

RAQ Announces Rare 5-Night Halloween Mini-Tour

first_imgRAQ is BAQ! The Burlington-native jam-rock quartet have announced that they will officially hit the road starting on October 31st for a five-night east coast Halloween Run supported by up-and-coming CT jammers Goose. The band, comprised of keyboardist Todd Stoops, bassist Jay Burwick, guitarist Chris Michetti, and recently-added drummer Scotty Zwang will kick off the run with an All Hallows Eve performance at Washington, D.C.’s Gypsy Sally’s before traveling to Harrisburg, PA, Stanhope, NJ, Albany, NY and, finally, Hartford, CT.RAQ has been touring as a four piece band for over a decade, though RAQ tour dates have been few and far between in recent years as the band members focused on a variety of other projects. Late last year, ahead of a rare three-night reunion run in the Northeast, the band announced the addition of Zwang on drums, a veteran of a variety of acts including Greenhouse Lounge, Sonic Spank, Dopapod. Since then, the band has played a handful of shows, but busy band member schedules have restricted the scope of the band’s touring.Their first reunion shows last year left little doubt that the band still delivers tremendously, prompting older fans wishing the band was still full time and the younger generation wondering what they have missed. RAQ is currently working on a new album (their first since 2006’s Ton These), and their 5-night Halloween jaunt matches their longest run in years, sparking excitement among fans for what many hope to be a renewed focus on the project from its ever-busy members.You can see the full list of RAQ’s Halloween Run shows below. You can purchase tickets to each of the shows, through the venue websites.RAQ 2017 Halloween Run Tour DatesOctober 31 Washington, DC – Gypsy Sally’sNovember 1 Stanhope, NJ – Stanhope HouseNovember 2 Harrisburg, PA – Appalachian Brewing Co.November 3 Albany, NY – The HollowNovember 4 Hartford, CT – Arch Street Tavernlast_img read more
