Texas Poster Art Collection: In the late 1960s, Texas poster art, long an important mainstay of the state's printmaking tradition, entered a fertile and innovative period in Austin. Drawing inspiration from the counter culture and psychedelic music movements, a new generation of Texas graphic arts designers created one-of-a-kind posters. Today their works are considered some of the finest artifacts of this music poster explosion.

Tom Wright Photographic Archive: Tom Wright's work with The Who has produced an extensive photographic and audiotape archive documenting the group's artistic evolution from 1967 until the beginning of the 1990s. In addition to his work with The Who, Wright has also served as a photographer and/or road manager for the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and the Faces, Elvis Costello, and others.
