Fine Art Exhibit Opens at Tech Museum

From the Vatican Exhibit to one of the country's finest Southwest art collections. A new exhibit opened to the media at the Texas Tech museum on Friday. This is the first stop for the exhibit since it opened in New York. It will only be shown in one other place. The exhibit features 75 pieces of Native American artwork from artists across the country. It opens to the public on Sunday.

If you read a lot of books, or if you would just like to have some books, this weekend is your chance to get good books at a good price. It's the "Friends of the Library" annual book sale. Thousands of books went on sale in the basement of the Mahon Library in downtown Lubbock Friday morning. The sale was booked for members of the "Friends of the Library." The sale opens to the public Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and continues Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The annual Farmer-Stockman Show continued Friday. The show is the largest outdoor event of its kind in the country.

It is open until 6 p.m. Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $5 for adults 18 and over. Everyone under 17 gets in free.
