Buddy Holly Center

While I was visiting Lubbock, Texas I stopped by the Buddy Holly Center.  The center houses the museum dedicated to the late singer/song writer Buddy Holly.  The museum displays include his guitars, clothing, program bills and, of course, his signature horn rimmed glasses.  The documented time line chronicles his professional career which was tragically cut short.  He was born and raised in Lubbock and was part of the West Texas music scene.  The Buddy Holly Center is much more than a museum. It is a cultural center dedicated to the arts.  There are two art galleries housed in the building.  Both galleries featured contemporary art created by artists from Texas.  Enjoyable visit!
