GRAMMY Museum, Woody Guthrie Center Launch Springsteen Exhibit
Bruce Springsteen: A Photographic Journey — a traveling photography exhibit curated by the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles — debuted April 29 at the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Okla. On display through spring 2015, the exhibit documents the career of the 20-time GRAMMY winner through photos taken by official GRAMMY photographer Danny Clinch, Ed Gallucci, Eric Meola, Pamela Springsteen, and Frank Stefanko.
"Our goal with this exhibition is to define the career of Bruce Springsteen in an entirely new light, as captured by these five incredible photographers," said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. "Each of these photographers was able to artfully document Bruce's world, at different stages in his career. We are honored to partner with each of them in order to help tell the story of one of the most important figures in American music."
While the majority of the exhibit focuses on Springsteen offstage, four additional live performance photographs by Barry Schneier are showcased. These photos were shot during the now-famous Springsteen concert at the then-Harvard Square Theater in Cambridge, Mass. After the concert famed Rolling Stone music journalist Jon Landau claimed, "I have seen the future of rock and roll, and its name is Bruce Springsteen." Additionally, the exhibit features video interviews with each of the photographers, produced by the Museum.
During an event in conjunction with the exhibit's launch, which coincided with the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Woody Guthrie Center, the center was announced as the first U.S. affiliate of the GRAMMY Museum.
