Drove out to Longview to visit with Andy Don Emmons and the LMFA.  The museum is located downtown in an old JC Penny department store.  The museum has a huge potential to become an important cultural destination in East Texas.  I left with the impression that the museum has lots of work to do before it can be taken as a serious museum.

Ed Blackburn, "Tares and Wheat", 1976 

Chase Yarbrough, Detente
DeForrest Judd, "Waterlily", 1964 

Robin Utterbeck, "Untitled #729", 1994
Jesse Amado, "One (MCMXCIII)", 1973 
I am 99.9% sure that the date is incorrect for the Jesse Amado's work.  I believe it is more likely from the 90's. 
Thanks to Andy Don Emmons for the tour of the museum, the vision, and what the future holds for this institution.  I am hopeful that this museum can become a destination for art lovers.
