Rock Art Poster Fair – The Museum at Bethel Woods, Center for the Arts

The Rock Poster SocietyI am a member of the rock poster society, I love being a music poster collector. I noticed on their Web site that there is going to be a rock poster event taking place at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, at the end of this month. The museum has curated a special exhibit for rock music fans.

We are planning to visit the Adirondacks in upstate New York at the end of this month. When I think of music created in upstate New York my thoughts often turn to the artistic community of Woodstock, NY.

We’ve been influenced strongly over the decades by Woodstock, NY. The Band, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Todd Rundgren are just a few of the many musicians associated with this vibrant art community. Its time we pay Woodstock, NY a visit.

We have been to the The Museum at Bethel Woods in Bethel, NY (43 miles from Woodstock), the site where the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival took place. I wrote about that experience in this blog post, The Spirit of Woodstock at 40.

The Band recording that is getting the most iTunes plays is the second recording simply called, The Band. The follow-up to Music From Big Pink.
