This promotional film narrated by Wallace Pryor highlights Fiesta 80, an art festival held at the Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin. Beginning in 1950, Fiesta was a two-day art festival held to raise money for the museum. In addition to the artists there were activities for children, a sizable art auction, and of course plenty of food. The festival now continues downtown under the name of Art City Austin.
Known to many as the "Voice of the Longhorns," Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard "Cactus" Pryor. The films in the Wallace and Euna Pryor collection represent a range of films, including home movies,  various pieces he produced, and films featuring himself and Cactus Pryor.
