Coming Soon - Sixty from the ‘60s
Sixty from the '60s, an original exhibit that will be on display from March 15 through January 4, 2015, will feature iconic photographs, historic objects and documents, books, clothing, posters, and artwork related to sixty Americans who made an impact on this seminal era and whose work continues to be relevant today. From arts and entertainment to social activism and civil rights, science and health to business and industry, it was these individuals who made a fundamental difference in American life.
See original lyrics written by Bob Dylan, a Telstar satellite, a dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s communications headset, a boxing glove worn and signed by Muhammad Ali, and an original Peanuts comic strip – just to name a few of the many cultural icons that will be on display.
As visitors explore the exhibit, they will also hear a soundtrack of songs from the 60s chosen as the best of that decade by renowned musical artists and the public.
Additional content will be made available on our handheld multimedia guide.
Save the date! It's an experience you won't want to miss.
This exhibit is sponsored by University Federal Credit Union.
Did You Know…
One of LBJ's favorite songs was "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," recorded by B.J. Thomas in 1969. Visitors to the LBJ Ranch in Stonewall, Texas, hear the song on a CD provided by the Ranch as they drive through the property, like these guests who attended a barbeque in the style of those hosted by LBJ.
