An unusual and by some perspectives disturbing art exhibit is on display at an East Texas museum, and its drawing the attention of visitors. The images are unusual and all part of an ongoing exhibit of the works of Marfa native Julie Speed at the Longview museum of fine art.
"With this one there's a really big wow factor. This is strange this is unusual this is bizarre," says museum worker Charles Arnold.
"What people see is a narrative its constantly changing over the 2 months I might be working on it," says Speed.
But some are drawing questions. A death theme in some, and ominous backgrounds.
"I think people could easily choose to be offended. This is art after all," says Arnold.
But Speed says there is no controversy that she sees.
"I think dark and funny. I just crack myself up, its nice that someone's talking about it so I guess that would be good. Just so they look at it, that's all," Speed says.
Ultimately that's what art is.
"People see what they want to see," says Arnold.
Speeds art will be on display at the Longview museum of fine art until December 29th.
