Thank you Henryetta Historical Society for inviting me to present Saturday night. I appreciate being part of your event and enjoyed showing off the Joseph W. Hardin Collection. It was great to be able to show the photos in high-resolution on the big screen and share these fascinating images of Henryetta and the surrounding area.

The Hardin collection is an amazing collection that I have been privileged to work with for over 10 years now, digitizing and restoring portions of the collection in several initiatives. Within the collection of over 5000 photos, glass negative and conventional negatives there are almost 100 Cirkut Camera negatives, some up to ten feet in length. This collection is truly a treasure for the Henryetta Historical Society.

Thank you Fort Martin Scott for contracting Circa to provide a website and logo design for this significant piece of Texas History. We are excited to learn more about this frontier fort and the connection it has with the Native American and Texas Ranger history in the Hill Country of Texas.

In 2003, we began working with the Henryetta Historical Society in Henryetta Oklahoma. In addition to two major exhibits, we have completed several digital archival initiatives as well as restored hundreds of their photos through the years. As of January 2, this year we are working on another initiative to add another 1000 images to their image database. We are excited to continue serving this client and help them to preserve these images of Oklahoma History.

Fort Chadbourne, a Texas Fort and member of the Texas Forts Trail, contracted us to produce their new website. The website was up shortly after Thanksgiving and has been well received.

One visitor to the site commented: "Of the websites for the Frontier Forts, your site is by far the most informative and professional. You all have hit a home run with this site and the entire presentation. The visitors center by far out shines any of the  State visitors centers.  Proves that when there is a will, there is  a way!"

Please visit www.fortchadbourne.org to see our work as well as learn about Fort Chadbourne and also appreciate the work of the Richard's family as they have worked to preserve this piece of Texas History.

Preliminary Exhibit Design
We are excited about a new project for the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This is a project for a long-time contact and will be displayed in the Student Union on campus. We have produced several projects for this contact over the years. The purpose of the Arkansas Union Native American Exhibit is to tell the story of Arkansas’ Native Americans as prepared by the Arkansas Archeological Survey. This exhibit is designed to bring attention to the important cultural history of Native Americans in Arkansas through a casual environmental experience. This experience will educate and enlighten both residents and visitors producing a better understanding of the early human experience in Arkansas. The exhibit concludes by highlighting the fact that these people groups continue to be represented today. Decedents of these early people continue to live, work and contribute to culture. This additional aspect will be communicated through a selection of photos and brief bios of current Native American students attending the UofA. Please see this link below for the proposed exhibit design.

I just ran across this video from the most recent project at the Wildlife Heritage Center. Watch me do a seven hour install in 3 minutes and 29 seconds. Wish I could really work this fast!
