John Lunsford will present the life and work of Jerry Bywaters. Bywaters (1906-1989) was born in Paris, Texas, and is an American artist, university professor, museum director, historian, and art critic instrumental in the development of the regional art of Texas and the Southwest. Lunsford will bring two original Bywaters lithographs for an evening overflowing with biographical information and personal anecdotes.

Lunsford is an Oak Cliff native. He is the former director of the SMU Meadows Museum and the first Senior Curator at the Dallas Museum of Art (formerly the DMFA) where he worked for 28 years.
