POWER: GLIMPSES OF BOOMTOWN TEXAS
TAMI's latest exhibit, "Power: Glimpses of Boomtown Texas" forms not only a visual record of Texas oil operations but also a compelling examination of how the industry produces power beyond energy utility.

Power well suited for Hollywood entertainment, from Boom Town (1940) and Giant (1956) to AMC's television adaptation of The Son and, of course, back to Dallas.
