This episode of Focus 16, a local television show produced for KEDT-TV in Corpus Christi, features Fort Worth native and longtime Corpus Christi resident Billie Trimble Chandler—founder, director, and curator of the Japanese Art Museum of Corpus Christi. (The museum is now known as the Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures.) Chandler lived and worked in Japan for many years. When she returned to Texas in 1971, she brought with her a large collection of Japanese art, establishing the Japanese Art Museum of Corpus Christi in 1974. In this local television show, she shows off highlights from the museum's collection, including haniwa, or funerary, art; handmade models of Shinto shrines; and masks. She is joined at the end by Dr. Richard Marcum, chairman of the museum's board of trustees. He discusses the upcoming programming at the museum.
