Marfa Lights Viewing Center Archive donated to permanent collection

The Marfa Lights Viewing Center Archive came into the museum collection on the occasion of the Dark Skies, Mystery Lights exhibition.  Former Marfa high school teacher Felicia Locke preserved all the original documents from a project she began with her students in 1998.  Their idea to create a roadside pavilion for observing the Mystery Lights grew from classroom to Texas Senate funding.  Among the artifacts are the original sketches made by Locke’s architect father and the student’s rally banner (opposite).  The museum is very honored to receive this unique gift.
