Pride in Place This project is based on an earlier grant project entitled "Pride in Place: Investigating the Cultural Roots of Texoma Artists." The 2013 project, also funded by the Priddy Founda- tion, included a unit of instruction for grades K–12, based on Texas artists in the collection of the museum and local living artists (available at www.mwsu. info/wfma/pride-in-place-2013). The unit was developed by the museum director, Francine Carraro, PhD; museum education director, Mary Helen Maskill; Wichita Falls art teach- ers Pam Stodghill Day, Audra Miller, Carol Rose, and Claire Walker Ross; and the North Texas Institute of Edu- cators on the Visual Arts. Pam Stodghill Day is a middle-school art teacher in Wichita Falls, Texas, and one of the four local art teachers involved in both projects from the beginning.
