A Guide to the McGarrigle-Aronie Videotape Collection, [ca. 1985-1987]
Formed in the 1970s, Sheauxnough Studios was a collective of poster artists in Austin, Texas, formerly associated with the Armadillo World Headquarters. When the Studios closed and the building was demolished in 1987, Seth I. Aronie, now known as Emmanuel Aronie, produced a program about the closing of Sheauxnough Studios, entitled “End of an Era,” which aired on the local television public access network, ACTV. Aronie transferred footage and copies of the program to Patrick McGarrigle, who in turned donated the collection to the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
The McGarrigle-Aronie Videotape Collection, [ca. 1985-1987], contains 33 videotapes of interviews and footage filmed during the making of "End of an Era," a TV program about the closing of the Sheauxnough Studios. One tape contains the program itself, while the other tapes include rough footage. Local Austin artists featured and interviewed for the program include Dee "Juke" White, Danny Garrett, Michael Priest, and others. Additionally, the footage showcases the Austin cityscape, Town Lake, the construction site at Sheauxnough Studios, an art show at the Dougherty Art Center, and a presentation and awards ceremony at the Barker History Center, now the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
This collection is open for research use.
