Lasting Beauty 💎

SUNDAY August 13, 2023

“Our bloom is gone. We are the fruit whereof.”

Poet Wallace Stevens

The problem with most flowers is they often don’t last long enough — especially in the blazing heat. We’re fortunate the R.W. Norton Art Gallery of Shreveport curated the BLOOM! exhibit now at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts so more people can continue to enjoy them.

Architecture is another lasting art form that conveys beauty and heritage. The city of Palestine recently restored its Carnegie Building and moved its public library back in, making it one of the state’s few remaining Carnegie Libraries. — Lisa Tang

Cattle Baron John Chisum’s Legacy Lives On

Pioneer cattle baron John Simpson Chisum was born August 16, 1824, in Tennessee. His family moved to Red River County, Texas, when he was a boy. His father, Claiborne Chisum — a public-spirited and wealthy man — was probably the earliest settler in Paris, Texas.

 

As a teenager John found work as a store clerk in Paris and a building contractor. He later served briefly as a road overseer in Hopkins County, accumulated land, operated several small grocery stores, and served as the County Clerk for Lamar County from 1852 to 1854. READ MORE.

Palestine Reopens Carnegie Library

The Palestine Public Library (PPL) recently reopened in one of its previous locations — the historic Carnegie Building constructed in 1914. Money for the initial building of the library was donated by steel magnate turned philanthropist Andrew Carnegie of Pittsburgh. Carnegie donated millions to the construction of libraries across the globe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to improve access to education, books, and learning in communities worldwide. READ MORE.
