Join the curators of “Stories to Tell: Selections from the Harry Ransom Center” as they offer their unique perspective into the exhibition and the Center’s collections. The exhibition presents stories of inspiration, adaptation, innovation, confrontation, collaboration, and frustration, selected from the Ransom Center’s extensive cultural collections.

The 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.
