Dallas finally gave the Vaughan brothers due recognition with a piece of public art coming soon to Kiest Park.
But Austin was the second home to Oak Cliff-born Stevie Ray Vaughan beginning in the ’70s.
Now the Bullock Museum, which is like Texas’ own Smithsonian, has put together an exhibit all about the one-of-a-kind bluesman, who graduated from Kimball High School.
Here are the details of “Pride and Joy: The Texas Blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan”:
Several guitars, including Vaughan’s famed “Number One” Fender Stratocaster, are on view alongside artifacts such as poignant early family photographs, original concert posters, tour ephemera, stage outfits, handwritten lyrics, exclusive archival concert footage — and his iconic hat and Indian headdress.
The exhibit opens in March.
