Texas on the Air: 1920-1959

Texas on the Air: 1920-1959

The format of Texas on the Air: 1920-1959 involves four towering antennas and bands of radio waves radiating from the tops. The four areas between the towers represent the four decades. They are divided into three color bands with images of broadcasting development, Texas history, and geographic locations and communities. The center circle is rendered as the Texas Capitol Dome and includes an allegorical figure. This figure, representing "Freedom of Speech", is carrying a flaming 1920's style carbon microphone and a Texas flag. The perspective of the design gives the sense of looking up into the images. This concept represents the aspect of broadcasting existing in the air.
