Exhibit opening: "When Austin Got Weird" at the Bullock
Relive Austin's "Golden Age" through poster art that captures the spirit of the counterculture movement of the 1960s and '70s in the capital city of Texas. "When Austin Got Weird," an exhibit curated by the Bullock Texas State History Museum, opens Friday, July 11 and is on view through Sunday, September 14 in the third-floor Rotunda Gallery.
Although the slogan "Keep Austin Weird" was not trademarked until 2000, it had its roots in Austin long before. Using music posters from two Austin collections, the exhibit explores the poster artists and music venues that defined Austin's cultural scene between 1967 and 1980.
