Book of the Week

 

To allow those that cannot visit an Exhibition or our Collection Headquarters located in Lubbock, Texas, The Remnant Trust has created the book of the week.

 

The Remnant Trust will feature each week a selected work with information and a picture of a work. It is also featured on our Facebook and Twitter as well. So check us out!
