‘Tis the season to make your business stand out. At Austin’s hottest new shopping district, Domain Northside, that is happening, thanks to some pretty outstanding large banners that run along Rock Rose. Just opened in time for the holidays, the sparkling new restaurants, stores and bars along Rock Rose are already getting a lot of media and shopper attention.
We produced many of these large banners for the hot shopping district. It’s a great way to capture the attention of your audience and excited customers.
Whether signage for indoor, outdoor, retail, fundraising, conferences, for walls, windows or hanging, go big, and let’s make your business sparkle this holiday!
KLRU is renowned for the Austin City Limits televised live broadcasting. And the taping of the show has been a desirable ticket to have for decades – over 4 decades to be exact. Premiering in 1974 with Willie Nelson, the show was created as a response to PBS’s request that local stations develop individual content. The show has become the longest running music program in television history and has been recognized in many significant ways.
A new event gaining momentum is the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame. The ACL Hall of Fame event was established in 2014 to celebrate the legacy of legendary performing artists and special individuals who have played a vital part in the pioneering music series’ remarkable 40+ years as a music institution.
Inductees this year were Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, B.B. King, and Dick Peterson, whose journey began and ended at KLRU in Austin, playing a vital part in producing ACL. Performers included Willie Nelson, Mavis Staples, Rodney Crowell, Gary Clark Jr., Billy Gibbons, B.B. King Band, Taj Mahal, and Eve Monsees.
Sponsorship opportunities help benefit KLRU-TV; look for opportunites in the spring of 2017 and ticket sales to follow. Watch – the opportunities go quickly!
The Austin City Limits Hall of Fame is located at The Moody Theater and consists of a photo gallery, timeline/anthology mural, and an interactive online library of Austin City Limits content.
This month we honor the work of Don Collins, whose beautiful artwork has graced our annual calendar for each of the past 40 years. Don has produced approximately 400 works for our calendars, allowing us to share his passion with our customers.
Don has embraced hunting unique sites on back roads, long-deserted main streets and historical libraries in Texas for decades. The special sites include a story – be it a story of getting onto the property to take a photo, a story of the building itself, or a tale involving the folks he met on his adventures. His drawings and paintings breathe life back into these old homes, barns, courthouses, shanties and structures that he has chosen. Don authored the book, Traces of Forgotten Places: An Artist’s Thirty-Year Exploration and Celebration of Texas as It Was sharing some of these stories and drawings.
For the beautifully restored Austin house that graces the cover of the 2017 Miller Calendar, Collins made a late fall visit after the thick tree cover had shed its leaves.
Raised in Parker County west of Fort Worth, Don worked as a commercial artist after serving in the Army during the Korean War and graduating from the University of Texas at Austin. Though he produced a wide range of images for commercial accounts ranging from builders, architects, book publishers and NASA, Don now concentrates on landscapes, character studies, and nostalgia pieces.
Collins is active in his “retirement”, having recently published a colorful children’s book featuring animals of all kinds visiting doctors and dentists. He is involved with several DFW art organizations, accepts several commissions yearly, and travels abroad, with a trip to Africa scheduled in 2017. Additional work and contact information are available on his website, www.dchandart.com. Order your 2017 calendar today on our website.
