This exhibition highlights the early years of Rock & Roll when rock music was accessible to all and popular music played an undeniable role in defining the character and spirit of the 1960s. On loan are vintage concert posters which were the visual record of the era, rare photographs of music personalities like Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin by famed photographer and filmmaker Lisa Law and an extraordinary selection of photographs of the earliest shots of the Beatles ever taken by Astrid Kirchherr and Jϋrgen Vollmer. Red Rocks memorabilia from the Arts & Venues collection will complement this unique exhibition.
