Here’s a way to celebrate the lives of two Oak Cliff greats.

Commemorative public art will be dedicated to Stevie Ray Vaughan on what would’ve been the blues performer’s 67th birthday, Sunday, Oct. 3.

No specific plans for the 4 p.m. event have been released so far, but we hear VIPs have been invited. For sure there will be fans from near and far.

The City of Dallas commissioned Spanish artist Casto Solano to design and build the memorial piece at Kiest Park, which was installed last year and honors Vaughan, who died in 1990, and his brother, Jimmie. The Vaughan brothers grew up nearby and attended Kimball High School.  

Neighbors and fans raised about $75,000 for the piece. The city put in about $74,000, which came from 2006 bond funds. 

Filmmaker Kirby Warnock says KERA plans to air his documentary, When Dallas Rocked, which also inspired efforts for a Vaughan memorial in Dallas, in October. 

Here is the schedule: 9:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1,

4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3,

1 a.m. Monday, Oct. 4,

and 1 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 10.
