Worcester Art Museum Celebrating the 60’s

Monday, October 08, 2012

If you believe in "flower power," you will be pleased to know that the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) is celebrating the 1960's all month long.

The exhibition "Kennedy to Kent State: Images of a Generation" is currently on display at the museum, and showcases some of the most iconic photography of the 60's. From "Flower Power" by Bernie Boston (pictured), to the heart-wrenching image of Brigadier General Nguyen Ngoc Loan Executing a Viet Cong Guerilla, these photographs capture the most gripping moments from a decade of extensive change.

To complement the exhibition, the museum will turn its Renaissance Court into a concert hall on October 14th for a performance by American Century Music, who will be performing classic music of the 1960's.

“With our new exhibition, Kennedy to Kent State: Images of a Generation, having opened a couple weeks prior to this show, we thought it made sense to focus on works from the same era,” said Karmen Bogdesic, WAM’s public events manager. “And to be in the Renaissance Court with its amazing acoustics will certainly add to the natural grandeur of the music.”

The concert will begin at 5:30 pm, and will be preceded by a tour of the exhibition with WAM's curator of prints, drawings and photographs, David Acton. That tour will begin at 5 pm.

The museum will also hold a tribute to Motown and the Civil rights movement on the 18th, followed by a Family Day on the 21st with art-making activities and a scavenger hunt.
