Woodstock & Beyond: The Visionary Art of Mike Frankel

Pollak Gallery

An exhibit of photographs by artist/photographer, Mike Frankel that capture many of the historic milestones in rock history including; the first ever appearance of Led Zeppelin in New York City and the Who's first New York City performance of Tommy, along with photographs from the stage at Woodstock. The images have been scanned and printed directly from the 35 mm transparencies. The finished 35 mm slides were composed and exposed with up to 10 images on one frame of film while the action never stopped. There are some compelling single image photographs in the exhibition, but the multiple image photographs vividly demonstrate the power and dynamism of the rock 'n' roll experience.

By looking broadly at access and opportunity for all members of society regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender identity, national origin, race, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation we can help everyone recognize, appreciate, and respect difference.
