I’m going for sure. I would have loved to see that exhibit you mention above. JT’s voice must have been a treat, even if he’s only speaking, lol. “Dangerous Curves” is a fantastic title for a guitar exhibit and a killer band name as well. I may have to put a band together just to tell people I was in s band called “Dangerous Curves”, lol.Cool As a Moose. Wish I could get there to see it.
Are you going anorton?
This sounds, obviously, very focused on Rock n Roll guitars so that is very cool indeed.
I wonder how much the Rock and Roll Museum helped out?
Boston Museum of Art did an exhibit on the Guitar through out history
in 2000. It was called "Dangerous Curves - Art of the the Guitar".
They had a local boy named James Taylor do the narrating w/ samples of
the actual instrument as you were viewing them on a cassette.
The narration piece was an included part of the exhibit and not extra money like some
Art exhibits at the MMA.
It was a great exhibit showing new and old (1628). They had early pre-guitars and of
course Jimi's psychedelic painted guitar as well as Gene Autrie's acoustic on display.
Showed an old Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Company Arch top from 1918. The guitars were
lent to the Museum from around the country and world. A great perspective.
Some patrons of the museum were put out because guitars aren't real art. The show
was a bit hit though. Great idea to get new young blood into the museum.
