"The Art of Rock 'n Roll" at Petaluma Arts Center

The Petaluma Arts Center announces The Art of Rock ‘n Roll, on view from April 18 through May 31, 2015. Opening reception is April 18 from 6:00-11:00pm, featuring surf rock band The Deadlies from 8:00-11:00pm.

The poster above, for the Paul McCartney appearance at Berkeley Memorial Stadium, in 1990, is one of ten David Singer posters to be displayed in the show.

New musical movements are known to be an inspiration to all the arts. In the case of Rock ‘n Roll, an entire subculture developed to the beat, and Bay Area artists and musicians were in the thick of things.

Collected by curator Joseph McDonald, iconic photos from the era as well as vibrant posters that announced the great rock concerts appear in The Art of Rock ‘n Roll at the Petaluma Arts Center and IceHouse Gallery, April 18 through May 31. Arts Center Executive Director Val Richman says, “We know this will be a crowd-pleasing exhibition and look forward to presenting a variety of iconic images along with some that have rarely been seen. Collaborating with IceHouse Gallery and their exhibition The Beatles creates the fun of an art walk, since they are located across the street in the Burdell Building.”
