Bullock Museum Exhibit Features Photos by Professor Bill Kennedy

A new exhibit now open at the Bullock Texas State History Museum features photography by St. Edward's University's own photocommunications professor, Bill Kennedy.

The exhibit, Views of the Capitol: 125 Years in the Making, displays architectural drawings and photos of 19th century construction and 20th century renovation of the state’s Capitol Building. The exhibit is organized jointly by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and the Bullock Museum.

In the early 1990s, Kennedy was commissioned by TSLAC to document the historic transformation of the Capitol which included the creation of the underground extension, and which added approximately 667,000 feet to the building’s original footprint.

On Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 12 p.m., Kennedy will deliver a High Noon Talk at the Bullock Museum to share his memories of capturing the Capitol building renovation on film. This talk is free and open to the public.

The exhibit is located on the 3rd Floor Rotunda Gallery at the Bullock. It runs from Aug. 1 through Dec. 31 of this year. For more information and to see additional photos by Bill Kennedy that will not be included in the physical exhibit, visit TSLAC.
