Through the program, public artworks are funded using one percent of the estimated total cost of each new major capital project. Since then, more than 100 items created by some of today’s leading artists have been added to the TTU System’s multiple campuses. Contact Emily Wilkinson, public art manager, to inquire about touring the public art, presentations about the collection, brochures and additional information.

FINE ARTS GALLERY
The Buddy Holly Center partnered with The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation headquartered in London, England, and opened a new permanent exhibition in the Center’s Foyer Gallery that began on Friday, February 3, 2017.
The exhibition will feature an acoustic Akin guitar signed by legendary performer Sir Paul McCartney, and numerous framed certificates signed by the many Foundation musical ambassadors who recognize Buddy Holly’s inspirational musical influence in the early years of Rock and Roll. The mission of The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation is to honor Buddy’s legacy as well as to make Buddy and Maria Elena Holly’s dream of extending musical education, including songwriting, production, arranging, orchestration, and performance, to new generations regardless of income or ethnicity or learning levels. We will empower a new generation to follow in Buddy’s footsteps.
The Foundation will periodically lend additional items for the exhibition from its extensive collection of artifacts. The Center will use this opportunity to display other items from its collection, namely, Buddy’s bedroom furniture, acquired by the Center through the auspices of Civic Lubbock, Inc. Buddy’s dining room table is now on display as well.
The Buddy Holly Gallery features a permanent exhibition on the life and music of Buddy Holly. Artifacts owned by the City of Lubbock, as well as other items that are on loan, are presented in this exciting exhibition. Included in the display are Buddy Holly’s Fender Stratocaster; a song book used by Holly and the Crickets, clothing, photographs, recording contracts, tour itineraries, Holly’s glasses, homework assignments, report cards, and much more
ABOUT THE CENTER
The Buddy Holly Center features 2,500 square feet of gallery space dedicated to the presentation of changing contemporary visual arts programs. These exhibitions are a continuation of a tradition of quality initiatives that were presented by the Lubbock Fine Arts Center from 1984 – 1998. With the relocation of the Fine Arts Center to the Buddy Holly Center in 1999, we continue the commitment to present challenging visual arts exhibitions that serve as a crucial resource for showcasing contemporary arts of the region and the nation.
Art is a form of communication independent of language… It is a way of manifesting human uniqueness. It is a way of reminding us that life is infinitely fragile, infinitely precious. – Norman Cousins
The Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public. The vision of the Buddy Holly Center is to discover art through music by celebrating legacy, culture and community.
Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock’s most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.
The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. The Plaza is open to the public dawn to dusk, year round. The West Texas Walk of Fame, and its induction process, are a project of Civic Lubbock, Inc.
The J.I. Allison House opened on the grounds of the Buddy Holly Center in 2013. It is the home where J.I. Allison, drummer of the band “The Crickets,” lived as a teenager and where he and Buddy Holly wrote many hits including, “That’ll Be the Day.”
J.I. Allison house tour times: Tuesday-Saturday 11 AM and 1:00 and 3:00 PM; Sunday 3:00 PM

Our commitment to creating learning opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds is made possible by public support. Exhibition tours, outreach programs, educational initiatives and family activities will continue to be the focus for future events. We invite you to join us in supporting public interest in contemporary visual arts and in the music and music history of Texas and West Texas.
