High Noon Talk: Seeing Stevie Ray


September 1, 2021 12:00pm - 1:00pm

See the Texas musician who inspired legions of fans and earned legendary status among guitarists.

Event Details

From Oak Cliff on the south side of Dallas to the blues clubs of Austin, Stevie Ray Vaughan established himself as the finest guitar player of his generation and perhaps the best of all time. From 1983 until just before his death in 1990, photographer Tracy Anne Hart captured Vaughan as he summoned magic with his passion, his technique, his intensity, and his love for the music. The result of that work is in the book, Seeing Stevie Ray. Join Hart for a talk on this deeply felt visual portrait of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and experience his genius in an entirely new way. Inspiration for this program comes from the exhibition, GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World, and the Bullock Museum's Texas History Galleries.

High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture.

Purchase this book online through the Museum Store. All purchases support the Bullock Museum’s exhibitions and educational programs.

Program is FREE to the public.
