Free – $10

Event Navigation

Picturing Rock ‘n’ Roll with Alan Bisbort is a dive into the history of rock ‘n’ roll, visually captured by Jim Marshall and his contemporaries. These artists went beyond documenting rock n’ roll subjects by capturing the spirit of their times and the counterculture that was blossoming in America, both in and out of the music scene.

Alan Bisbort is the Editor of PleaseKillMe.com, as well as a freelance writer and a collage artist. He currently teaches a course called Paper Bullets: Propaganda in American History at UConn-Waterbury and is working on a book by that title, to be published in 2018. He’s the author of numerous books, including Beatniks: A Guide to an American Subculture and Rhino’s Psychedelic Trip.

Wine and cheese reception begins at 5:30 p.m., presentation begins at 6:00 p.m.

Presented in conjunction with Rock and Revolution: Photographs by Jim Marshall.
