I just discovered this incredible exhibition curated by Jim Henke at Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power. It is also the subject of a companion PBS documentary, PBS Arts from Cleveland: Women Who Rock.
The interactive exhibition spotlights more than 70 artists and fills two entire floors of the museum. The exhibit features artifacts, video and listening stations, as well as a recording booth where visitors can film a short story or moment of inspiration related to women in rock.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Website is content deep with information about the Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibition. If you are a fan, teacher, student or scholar (that’s me ;), you’ll find much to read and learn about about how women in rock have contributed to the music over the decades.
There is also a three page blog with lots of interesting insights. Remember girls just wanna have fun and I support that 100%!
