Twenty rock and roll posters take a fun look back on fifty years of rock music in the Daura Gallery with an opening reception Tuesday, October 20, from 4 to 5 p.m.
Ephemera from artists such as Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, the Grateful Dead, the Clash, Madonna, and R.E.M. exemplify the diversity of the music that has evolved since Alan Freed’s Moondog Coronation Ball in 1952, cited by many as the first rock and roll concert. This exhibition is organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland, Ohio.
