It’s been up for almost a month… and I haven’t seen many posts about it on the internet, but “Who Shot Rock and Roll” now being exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art looks awesome and I know I’m going to go see it. The Museum claims that it’s goal with this exhibit is to “acknowledge the photographer’s creative and collaborative role in history of rock music.” Sounds pretty sweet to me. Check out some photos being shown at the exhibit:

The Museum of the City of New York will be holding it’s opening reception for it’s new exhibition and book “Only In New York: Photographs from LOOK Magazine.” It’s an affordable way to spend your evening, and the opening receptions at the Museum usually have complimentary drinks and snacks. The exhibit looks amazing… and includes many photos from the magazine that “focus on the fascination and allure of New York.”
