Ramon Hernandez features Legends of Tejano costumes from exhibit at The Wittliff Collections

The Legends of the Tejano exhibit is currently on display inside the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos and it features treasured artifacts from the world-class collection of famed musicologist Ramón Hernández.

The exhibit shows how Tejano music evolved from the early 1900s to present day through a series of hybrids, and how it continues to spin off into new genres.

Legends of Tejano Music takes visitors on a musical journey of nearly a century, using historic photographs, one-of-a-kind stage outfits, vintage concert posters, rare recordings, artifacts and instruments from legendary stars like Lydia Mendoza, Laura Canales, Freddy Fender, Little Joe Hernández, Sunny Ozuna, Selena, and many more.

The exhibition will be showcased through December 20, 2017, on the seventh floor of the Alkek Library on the campus of Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Visitors can view the collection from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Get more info on the Wittliff Collections at http://www.thewittliffcollections.txstate.edu.
