images10     Music has evolved over time into arguably the center of our culture today. You can’t go anywhere without hearing music in its most predominant form, a song, or a rare form, just someone tapping a rhythm with there feet. The seventies embody huge change in mainstream and underground music.

     This I knew before this exhibit and I must say I found it very interesting but not all too informative. I have a decent knowledge of music but I felt that there was no catch or spark here. It was nice picking out pictures of bands I knew and able to listen to older music, but none of this made this exhibit different.

    All in all it wasn’t an unpleasant experience, but it isn’t something I will remember forever also.  I just didn’t feel that it was anything special, or worth going to see for the sole purpose of seeing it.

    I agree with you Mary, I sure didn’t think it’s interesting enough for me to go back to.

    It was not only very informative, but also quite confusing. For many of the exhibits I had no idea what the artist was trying to portray.Some of the pictures and music pieces just seemed random as if they did not belong there.

    I knew the Ramones were going to be there; as music icons, it was a well deserved recognition of their work.. Though, the actual song selection was irky.

    Aww, I am so sorry that you feel that way about the exhibit. I somewhat got the same feeling that you had, simply because I didn’t know the majority of the artists that were being shown in the exhibition.
    But from an artistic stand point, I think the pictures were great. They just need a little more explaining and information.

    As you mentioned, the exhibit was not very informative, but some of the pictures that one can relate to, were good to look at.
