Willie Nelson: Texas Icon
On view starting November 8, 2014
In 2013, Nelson donated his vast collection of gifts, awards, and personal items to the University of Texas at Austin’s Briscoe Center. The Briscoe Center is a natural home for the Willie Nelson Collection, with resources covering a wide range of folk and popular music of Texas and the greater South and Southwest. The Willie Nelson display in the North End Zone of the Longhorn football stadium will change regularly to explore different aspects of this multitalented man and his music.
The Sam Rayburn Museum will reopen Sunday, November 11, after a comprehensive renovation of its permanent exhibit, the first major overhaul of the exhibit since the museum opened more than fifty years ago.
