Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution Exhibit coming to St. Petersburg, FL
Posted by: Rowland on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 01:30 PM


Bill Graham holds a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to let you know that the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg is hosting the Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution exhibition from August 18, 2018 through February 10, 2019. A Gibson Les Paul owned by Duane Allman will be on display along with memorabilia, photographs, archival concert footage, historical and new video interviews, ephemera, and psychedelic art.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution is both a deeply personal reflection on Grahamís life and an exploration of how Graham helped transform rock music into the immersive, multi-dimensional, and highly lucrative phenomenon of rock theater that persists today. Treasured photographs and artifacts from Grahamís early life and career will be on loan from the Graham family, many on view to the public for the first time. Also for the first time ever, preparatory drawings and the original artwork of several iconic Fillmore concert posters will be on museum display, revealing the signature visual styles and creative process of poster artists Bonnie MacLean, Wes Wilson, David Singer, Greg Irons, and David Byrd.


This exhibition explores the extraordinary life of Bill Graham (1931- 1991), a renowned music promoter who helped launch and promote the careers of countless rock & roll artists. It also traces the indomitable spirit of a man brought to the United States as an eleven-year-old Jewish refugee fleeing the Nazis, fueling a lifelong passion and advocacy for social justice.


Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution opens to the public on August 18, 2018 and will be on display through February 10, 2019 at The Florida Holocaust Museum.
