Experience the impact of "Dallas" at an exhibit in ... Austin!

We know gas prices (and airfare) are atrocious these days, but if you can work out a trip to the great state of Texas this summer, you'll be happily rewarded. The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin has assembled a delightful array of "Dallas" goodies for an exhibit that just opened this past weekend. Called "Dallas: Power & Passion on Primetime TV," the exhibit runs through September 14 and includes fun stuff such as signed scripts, the "Dallas" family tree, and one of those familiar old safari shirts that J.R. just loved to wear early on in the series (you recognize it below, don't ya? yea ... you know you do!!!!).

Thanks to DallasFanzine.com's Garry for passing along the info, as well as the photo below. You can see many more photos from the exhibit at his site (click on "Gallery" from the home page). Garry reports that Steve Kanaly has already been at the exhibit, and Susan Howard will pop in, too. Producer/director Dwight Adair will be part of a discussion there in July.

You can read more about the exhibit, as well as see an event schedule, at the museum's site.
It also came up on Austin's KLBJ.
