THE BAND PERRY, were recently announced as featured in the photography the Annenberg Space for Photography exhibition Country: Portraits of an American Sound. They are the only modern day country band included in the exhibit, which presents images of the pioneers, poets and icons of country music.
It will be offered free to the public May 31 through September 28, 2014. Guest curators for this exhibit are Shannon Perich of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, and Tim Davis and Michael McCall of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum.
Country: Portraits of an American Sound uses historical and contemporary photographs to explore how images shape the public identity of country music performers and of the genre itself. Celebrated performers such as Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban and Hank Williams-as well as deejays, fans, executives and musicians-are seen in the works of photographers who documented multiple generations of this popular history.
The Art of Prince exhibit in San Francisco opens tonight and we are going to be trying something new and cool for you and for the drfunkenberry.com
We’ll have someone in San Francisco broadcasting live so that all of you who can’t make it will at least be able to peek in on the event. The broadcast starts at 6pm Pacific.
There will also be a chat room below where the video will be and you will be able to jump in there to chat with other viewers and to send us any questions or requests during the show. We’ll be communicating with the crew that’s there, so if there’s something you want to see, or someone you want them to talk to, let us know – we’ll pass it along.
