Summer of Love
Summer of Love 40th Anniversary - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum
In honor of the 40th anniversary of the “Summer of Love,” in which the hippies frolicked, wore beads and fought to end THE WAR, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has six relevant exhibits and displays.
1967 was a musical high water mark with many of the most legendary rock and roll musical artists of all time doing their best work. The Rock Hall’s exhibits, displays and lectures perfectly cover all aspects of that incredible watershed summer in American Pop Culture.
Forty years later, the collection of exhibits and displays at the Rock Hall offer incredible perspective on music, politics and culture.
Other notable museums like The Whitney are also launching exhibits on the Summer of Love but it’s the Rock Hall which connects the visitor to the time through the music itself. It’s the perfect rock and roll travel story people will be coming from all over the country to share their experiences of the Summer of Love with their kids and grandkids; other music fans will come to discover this important era themselves for the first time.
The beautiful I.M. Pei-designed museum on Lake Erie is truly stunning and Cleveland offers its visitors great hotels at bargain rates. The Rock Hall has special packages which bundle hotel & tickets to the museum (http://www.rockhall.com/visit/plan).
Rock Hall Summer of Love exhibits include:
The Doors “Break On Through; The Lasting Legacy of The Doors” opens May 25th (NEXT FRIDAY!) and was produced with the full cooperation of the three surviving band members as well as the estate of Jim Morrison. 2007 is also the 40th anniversary of The Doors’ first album and the band’s founding. Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore are all planning to attend the exhibit’s early opening days.
