Exhibit: Adam Orgain, First Settler of Hutto

Chesiel John, a local artist residing in Hutto, Texas, presents her celebration of a little known aspect of Texas history. Hosted by the Williamson Museum in Georgetown, Texas, John has crafted an installation piece which tells and interprets the life of Adam Orgain, a slave who is credited with being the first inhabitant of what is now known as the City of Hutto.

John’s installation, entitled Adam Orgain: First Settler of Hutto, incorporates antique pieces, such as furniture, found objects, and tools -some dating from the 1800’s- to invoke and describe the life of this remarkable man. Farm implements, clocks, harvested cotton and animal hides all combine to create a vivid reflection of a time long past while inviting the viewer to inhabit Orgain’s world as he worked the land in Central Texas.
