Rock the Date: Lecture and Book Signing

1:00, Artist talk by Lynn Goldsmith
“Goldsmith plunged into the music scene in the late 1960s, filming concerts, directing documentaries, songwriting, photographing, and befriending some of the artists she photographed. Goldsmith gives us the insider’s view of the musicians at the center of punk, alternative, commercial pop and the exclusive world of the super stars of rock. Her portraits of music legends including The Police, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Kiss, Keith Richards, and Bruce Springsteen, reflect her personal experiences and are notable for their intimacy and humor.” Goldsmith’s work is currently up at Etherton Gallery with Baron Wolman for the exhibition Rockin’ the Desert.

2:00, Lecture by Exhibition Curator, Gail Buckland
