 Steven Millhauser and Annie Proulx

In a rare public appearance, two of America’s most original writers share a stage for the very first time. Steven Millhauser “has never forgotten what it was like to be an 11-year-old boy, fueled by curiosity and wonder, trying to make the banal world around him fit his comic-book image of how things should be,” wrote The Washington Post. Annie Proulx is author of The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain. Her “sense of story is admirable, her sentences are artful, and she writes like a demon,” wrote The New York Times.

‘Brokeback Mountain’ shirts worn by Ledger, Gyllenhaal head to museum

 Iconic Shirts From Brokeback Mountain
on Display in Autry’s Imagination Gallery


Two intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the film
represent struggle between heritage and acceptance in gay cowboy culture

On display starting August 5, 2009

Los Angeles (July 27, 2009) —The Autry National Center is proud to announce the installation of
the two intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the Focus Features 2005
groundbreaking film Brokeback Mountain, also starring Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway.

The shirts will be displayed as part of a reinstallation of the Contemporary Westerns case in the
Autry’s Imagination Gallery. Directed by Oscar winner Ang Lee, the film is adapted from the
short story by Pulitzer Prize–winning author E. Annie Proulx in her Close Range: Wyoming
Stories collection. The shirts are on loan from collector, producer, and sociopolitical commentator
Tom Gregory.

The Western genre is an American art form that has played a crucial role in the development of
American popular culture. Putting the Western into a larger historical context, the Imagination
Gallery shows how the genre has evolved over the last one hundred years in response to social
and cultural changes taking place in America. The iconic shirts are at the center of the
Contemporary Westerns case in order to highlight Brokeback Mountain’s significance in keeping
the Western genre alive and thriving in the new millennium, and also to spotlight the LGBT
community’s struggle for safety and inclusion in the rural, Western communities from where
many originate yet often feel forced to abandon.

Noted author Gregory Hinton conceived the idea of displaying the iconic shirts at the Autry while
doing research for his fifth novel, Night Rodeo. “I noticed they were missing,” Hinton told
Gregory when he tracked him down on his website on New Year’s Day 2009. Mr. Gregory, owner
of the iconic shirts, won them in a 2006 charity auction. At their first meeting, Mr. Gregory
confessed to Mr. Hinton that after he bought them, he had assumed he would be hearing from
museums offering to display the shirts. No one called until Mr. Hinton did, three years later.
“My feelings were hurt,” Mr. Gregory admitted. “Not for me, but for the shirts, for what they
represent,” he said. On August 5, 2009, six months after the idea was first presented to the
Autry, the intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal will be displayed at the
museum.

Accompanying the shirts in the case are mannequins of Steve McQueen from the historical epic
Tom Horn (1980) and Jeff Bridges from the revisionist Western Wild Bill (1995), along with the
gun belts and revolvers worn by Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, and Martin Short in the comedy
ˇThree Amigos! (1986). A special section devoted to the career of actor-director Clint Eastwood
includes mannequins from Pale Rider (1985) and Unforgiven (1992).

The Autry seeks to explore all the peoples of the American West, and the exhibition of the shirts
is part of a larger attempt to examine the LGBT community’s contribution to the West and the
Western genre. The Autry is currently in negotiations to house the archives of the International
Gay Rodeo Association, and an October panel about what it means to be gay in the West is also
in the works.

This was originally posted by Lynne on BetterMost. 

The event is opened to DCF members who may be in the area as well, so I'm posting it here.  Any updates that appear on BM will be placed here as well.

James McMurtry, Larry McMurtry's son, and a famous singer-songwriter in his own right, is playing at Johnny D's in Somerville, MA on Saturday night, 9/26/09.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_McMurtry

James is credited with writing Water, Walking Jesus, and Lynne would love to ask him if there is more to that hymn and if he'll sing it for us.   

Lynne is starting with dinner reservation for four at 8:15 pm, though she'd love to increase that number substantially .

I believe the cover charge is $12/each and a minimum of $10 food/drink and we get to keep our table throughout the performance.  The show starts at 9:45 pm. 

I knew James McMurtry's music long before I knew anything about Brokeback Mountain - I think he's become the embodiment of what is called Americana music, specifically anti-Nashville-commercialism.  Rather his music has smart lyrics and is very socially aware.



Attendees:
Andrew
Lynne
