Online Exhibits

Special collections of curated films, related to a particular subject, theme or personality, are selected and extensively researched, and are made available on the Texas Archive of the Moving Image website. These online exhibits encourage an exploration of their both their Video Library and the TMIAP Collection to discover stories of Texas.


TAMI's latest exhibit, "Broadcasting 1968," considers a range of historic events and cultural trends through the lens of television news. With an emphasis on programming from Houston television stations KPRC and KHOU, the exhibit further uses so-called local news to complicate easy assumptions about city, state, nation, and world.
