Scope and Contents

The Texas Poster Art Collection represents the work of over thirty graphic artists whose posters document the music scene in Austin from 1966 to the present. Donated by the artists themselves, these posters are mostly concert annoucements or other musical promotionals for Austin clubs and bands. The earliest posters reflect the San Francisco "psychedelic" style used by Gilbert Shelton, Jim Franklin, and others for the Vulcan Gas Company. The latest posters include the faceted, multi-colored designs of Guy Juke. In between are nearly two decades of inspired design that weds music and the graphic arts.
