The Texas Heritage Museum recently open a new exhibit in the Art Gallery space titled, “Friends: Art from a Day at Russell Farm.” It is a group show of area artists who spent a day with Hill College art instructor, Tom Sale, creating artwork at Russell Farm Art Center in Burleson in October 2018.  

Artists include, Ken Craft, Erica Stephens, Ray-Mel Cornelius, Scott Winterowd, Maria Villa, Tonya Fonseca, Dana Isaac, and Allison Proulx. A variety of media and subject matter is represented in this small exhibit, including paintings, drawings and photography. 

The Texas Heritage Museum serves an active and successful role in the educational and service missions of Hill College; and brings increasing national and international prestige to Hill College. The Texas Heritage Museum is comprised of three divisions: Galleries & Collection, Historical Research Center, and the Hill College Press. Furthermore, on the front of the museum grounds is the Home of the Official Texas State Medal of Honor Memorial to Native-Born Texans. 

The Texas Heritage Museum's mission is "To explore Texas and Texans during wartime and how those experiences affect us today." This mission statement is divided into two parts. Part one of the mission states "To explore Texas and Texans during wartime…," and the Texas Heritage Museum showcases Texans in war. The second part of the mission states "…how those experiences affect us today," and the museum tries to concisely capture the visitors’ experiences with its exhibits and programs. 

The Museum’s hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Fridays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Summer hours begin May 13 and run through Aug. 16, Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Fridays.
