Went to see the exhibit this morning...Truly great stuff, if you get a chance definitely check it out!
Will this collection be exhibited in any other cities? If so, where/when?Lisa
.... a short traveling piece w/o requiring a lot of logistics to set up and exhibit. Let a lot of people see it cheaply (or sponsored freely).
I agree, It wasnt in that large of an area the room was prob 20' x 40' so seems it would be easy to transport...And $12 wasnt bad, could have seen the rest of the museum but was pressed for time.
Would this be worth flying across the country for? Or should I wait for the inevitable West Coast exhibit? I'm leaning towards waiting... Looks awesome though.
STARTING WITH SEATTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fly across the country to see it, Chaz? I'd wait. But then again, New York is a rockin' town (the Yankees notwithstanding). I've been there three times in my life and NEVER been bored, not even for a moment.
Yeah it was pretty cool to see some of these things but as Gary Lambert says above... "this represents just a tiny fraction" and it is VERY TINY. There were 3 small rooms of stuff and although some were interesting on the whole it wasn't overly exciting for me. Lots of concert posters we have seen before and the envelope artwork. Actually the coolest thing I saw while there were the pictures of the Fillmore east from the outside and the inside. Knowing some of the powerful shows they performed there and seeing how really small and intimate this place was is truley amazing. The band are right on top of the audience. My son actually lives in an apt. right across the street from where the fillmore was located and the street sign on his corner says "Bill Graham's Way". Other than that I was not wowed and would be much more interested in the full on santa cruz exhibit. Certainly don't fly across the country... but if you happen to be in NYC on a nice day and want to spend an interesting 30-45 minutes before walking thru central park... go check it out. Oh an one last thing... seeing the Jerry skeleton from the touch of grey video was just plain creepy.
I was there Saturday also. I wonder if we were there at the same time. I agree with your views. I enjoyed the exhibit, but was not overwhelmed or amazed. I actually enjoyed and learned more from the "Lincoln in New York" exhibit. "That path is for, your steps alone."
So weak. come on, there were certain things that was cool but way too small, and not even a dedicated room to show the movie?There would be more interesting stuff at any oldschool deadhead's apt. Very dissapointed, lame and very superficial
My daughters and I saw the show today and my older girl and I really liked it, younger "bored." There was some very cool and nice stuff there but it could have been bigger. I was also disappointed that the rest of the museum was closed for reno.It would have been a good counterpart to a very American band, to see all the very American artifacts they have! Teachers-- show your ID and get in for just $9. Union card, etc.
I won't get to see this exhibit, but I am wondering about Rosebud. I saw Rosebud and some of Jerry's other guitars (Wolf II, Top Hat and Lightning Bolt) at the R&R HOF last year and I am wondering what they put in Rosebud's place there. Must say, Jerry's guitars were a major wow factor at the HOF for this visitor. Sidenote, I work in a small history museum and if the room dimensions are small (someone noted 20'x40'), a cross-country trek to see this exhibit is likely not worth the while. If in NYC, definitely. I would wait a couple years for the UCSC folks to get the collection in order and create a full-scale exhibit. That archive must be dripping with "stuff," as we say in the museum biz.
What a long, strange feeling to smile and cry at the same time. It's worth the trip.
The BBC did a somewhat trite feature story on the ongoing exhibit in NYC (4/27?), The Grateful Dead and their San Fransisco friends have come to to be emblematic of a time when LSD was legal till the end of days when deadheads started smacking each other. I would hope there is a positive story theme to be gleamed from a trip to the the exhibits.
...extended thru September 5
That looks awesome!
We went in to the city on a field of 7 on Jerrys birthday 08/01. Anyone in a tyedye got in for free. The exibit was cool, only much smaller then I expected. They had more at Alpine Valley in 2002 on display. In the NYHS store lots of Dead stuff for sale; books, t-shirts, coffee cups & water bottles, even all the GD Road Trips, but without the bonus CDs.
