Austin City Limits and the show’s producing station KLRU-TV have teamed up with artist Tim Wakefield to showcase his art collection Soundwaves celebrating 40 years of Austin City Limits. Each stunning piece of artwork in this exclusive collection captures the soundwave of a famous recording. Wakefield then customizes the soundwave image into finished piece that represent his interpretation of each song.
Later this month, portions of the ACL Soundwaves collection will be displayed at various locations across Austin. Follow #ACLSoundwaves on Facebook and Twitter for additional details as they become available.
On April 14th to April 26th, the art will be auctioned online with net proceeds benefiting KLRU and Austin City Limits. Featured songs include (click on song title for more about each painting).
