Worcester Art Museum - Who Shot Rock and Roll

Are you anywhere in the vicinity of Worcester, MA? Did you know Worcester has a really great Art Museum? Well, you won't want to miss this fantastic exhibit called, "Who Shot Rock and Roll"! Showcasing about 100 photographs, the exhibit lets you peer into the public and private lives of iconic music stars from the 50's to the present.

 Music has such a huge impact on all our lives... It can bring us back to moments in time where we remember just what we were doing, where we were, and experiences we had. A song can do that. These photos do it too. A great aspect of the exhibit is reading the little blurbs next to the photos, which tell you about the photographer... who they were, their relationship to the artist, and sometimes noting how it was the first time they had picked up a camera!

From Elvis and Buddy Holly, to Eminem and Madonna... This exhibit blew me away, and I plan on seeing it a few more times! I dragged my four year old son in with me (because really, how else am I going to see it??)... He was fairly bored, but it was fun to see which photos caught his interest. He was completely intrigued by a floor to ceiling montage of hundreds of images of Michael Jackson dancing. When we were on our way out, he asked me if we could listen to music really loud in the car, specifically one of his favorite Green Day songs... Ha!

Please read more about the exhibit, and the other goings on at the Worcester Art Museum HERE. They also offer art classes for all ages, there is a library, ancient art, and more... This exhibit closes on May 30, 2010!! See it soon, or you lose!
