Great Music. No Limits. Celebrating 35 Years of Austin City Limits

Open March 22, 2010 - September 6, 2010 | Circular Gallery

Celebrating its 35th season, Austin City Limits is the longest-running music series in American television history. ACL recorded its first program with Willie Nelson in October 1974 at KLRU-TV at the University of Texas. Showcasing roots music, legends and innovative popular music from every genre, the series has become a music icon and has helped build Austin's reputation as the "Live Music Capital of the World." ACL is the only television program to ever receive the National Medal of Arts, the nation's highest award for artistic excellence, and was recently selected as a Rock and Roll Landmark by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibit includes photographs, set lists, contracts, program logs, tickets and other items from the show. A film featuring show highlights from the last 35 years is also featured.
