Wichita Falls Museum Day- Stroll and Roll ~ Hotter 'N Hell Clubhouse and art gallery

This is part 3 of my series on the Stroll N Roll from 2012
Part one ~ Museum of North Texas History
part two ~ The Wichita Falls RailRoad Museum

As a reminder, the Stroll N Roll is a yearly event put on by the city of Wichita Falls 
and the Red River Valley tourism Association. 
For one day, we can visit all the local museums and art centers area in our for FREE. 
The city also provides free trolley service to each of the sites. 
This year there were 10 sites available to visit. 
My posts will cover a few of them that the kiddos and I found interesting:_)

In this post I will cover 2 locations
The Hotter 'N Hell Hundred clubhouse
Wichita Falls Art Association Gallery

Hotter N Hell Hundred
The Hotter’N Hell grew geometrically for several years.  The Hotter’N Hell Hundred is still the largest single day 100 mile bicycle ride in the nation – and possibly the world. In 2012 more than 13,500 registrants again participated in the Hotter’N Hell Hundred weekend events.

I really liked this quilt someone had made with all the t-shirts designs from all the past years of the HNH.

For more info on the Hotter N Hell Hundred please check out the HH100 website

Wichita Falls Art Association Gallery
The Wichita Falls Art Association is a non-profit organization which is dedicated to promoting visual arts in the Texoma area.  This group began in 1949, from a small group of artists at the Woman’s Forum.

The association provides a medium in which the public can view various forms of local art, contributes scholarships to beginning art students, occasionally provides contributions for art supplies to local schools, and membership is open to anyone who desires to participate.

Members are entitled to show art work at any event in which WFAA chooses to participate.  These events include, but are not limited to, the Home and Garden Show at the end of February, the Kemp Show, which is usually held in the spring/summer, the Art Affair on the Kemp Square, and the Wichita Falls Art Association Membership Show, which are usually held in the fall of each year.  Special workshops by visiting artists may be offered periodically and sponsored by the association; members are offered a discount on enrollment fees.  There are also occasional day trips planned for visits to art galleries, museums, or other areas of interest.
