The completion of the third and final phase of the Texas Capitol Restoration was commemorated by a poster series symbolizing various aspects of the process, including the primary representative icon (Lady Liberty), the interiors phase (Capitol created from historic interior motifs), and the grand opening image (celebratory raising of the Capitol roof). To honor the grand opening, the state planned a weekend of events for the entire family, for opening month Congress Avenue was lined with banners from the graphic system, specialty items were branded with the event icons, as well as commemorative books describing the history and process of the Capitol's construction and restoration.
