Current Special Exhibit

The Old Red Museum of Dallas County History and Culture has announced a special, temporary exhibit entitled Dream No Small Dreams: How Erik Jonsson Led Dallas from Tragedy to Triumph in the 1960s, which will examine Jonsson’s visionary leadership of 1960s Dallas. The exhibit will tie in to other events throughout the city commemorating the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The exhibit opens to the public on November 7 and runs through August 31, 2014.

David Biegler, Chairman of the Board, remarked that “the Old Red Museum will tell the rest of the story with a particular emphasis on the aftermath of the assassination.  It is a story of civic action that pulled the city from depression and helped it regain the pride and momentum that had been so much a part of its past. The story will be examined through the individual leader who, as Mayor, took the helm of the city.  [Dream No Small Dreams] will focus on his extraordinary leadership after the dark days in 1963.”
