100 Years of Homecoming
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Homecoming at Baylor University. As the student organization responsible
for Homecoming, the Baylor Chamber of Commerce has played a central role in making the event the successful
tradition that it is today. The Baylor Chamber has partnered with the Mayborn Museum to highlight the colorful
history of this truly Baylor tradition. 100 Years of Homecoming is on display through February 14, 2010.
Sic 'em Bears!
Junior Duck Stamp Art on Display
You will be astonished by what these young artists have accomplished as you view the Junior Duck Stamp Art "Best
of Show" exhibit! This exhibit showcases winning entries from throughout the state of Texas in this important
nation-wide contest. The winning artwork is on display at the Mayborn Museum through October 26, 2009.
Free Sunday Program
One year ago, the Mayborn Museum began the Free Sunday Program which is held the first Sunday of each month. The
program has been a highly successful way to engage more of our local community. Our Free Sunday Program has
allowed thousands to visit the Mayborn Museum, many for the first time. The Mayborn Museum's Free Sunday Program
is made possible by the generosity of local underwriters.
Thanks to Insurors of Texas for sponsoring our September Free Sunday.
The next Free Sunday is October 4th and is made possible by Packaging
Corporation of America.
