    Stories to Tell: Selections from the Harry Ransom Center

    The Harry Ransom Center presents stories of inspiration, adaptation, innovation, confrontation, collaboration, and frustration, selected from its extensive cultural collections. The Ransom Center's rich holdings highlight the struggles, the complexity, and the rewards of creative work in literature, art, photography, film, and the performing arts.

    This exhibition of more than 250 items includes, among many others, David Foster Wallace, Julia Alvarez, and Gabriel García Márquez manuscripts, Henri Matisse's Jazz, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's spirit photographs, and the hat that accompanied the green "curtain" dress worn by Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind.

    The exhibition provides insight into the creative process and establishes meaningful, personal connections between the past and the present.
