When reminiscing on the world famous 1969 Woodstock music festival, memories of the stage, music, and crowd of nearly half a million people take center stage of the imagination.
The Museum at Bethel Woods’ newest Special Exhibit, & Art Fair, highlights many visual artifacts and art inspired by the 1969 music festival, many of which are still being discovered today.
"What was once viewed as trash left behind by Woodstock attendees at Max Yasgur’s farm is now a window into one of the most influential music festivals in history,” said Neal Hitch, Senior Curator at The Museum at Bethel Woods. “Each year our goal is to transform the artifacts and memories of Woodstock into new and innovative displays. This year’s Special Exhibit focuses on the untold stories of Woodstock and allows attendees to gain a new appreciation for the festival.”
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts members and contributing artists were given honors and the chance to experience the special exhibit on Thursday, March 31, before the Museum was opened up to the public for its 2022 season on Friday, April 1.
The exhibit will remain available to museum goers until December 31.
Admission to the Special Exhibit is included in the ticket to The Museum at Bethel Woods, or $5 standalone. To learn more about the special exhibit, find more information and tickets at their website, bethelwoodscenter.org.
