Buck Winn: Lone Star Regionalist
James Buchanan “Buck” Winn, Jr. was a Texas Regionalist, a school of art that focused on what the artist knows best. What Buck Winn knew best was Texas. Because of this, he was asked twice by Texas State University's (then Southwest Texas State College) President J.G. Flowers to create iconic works on campus: a base to showcase the Anna Hyatt Huntington Fighting Stallions and a four-story mural on what is now Flowers Hall. As a life-long learner, educator, and adventurer, Winn embraced the opportunity to broaden the cultural offerings on campus.
