Rocked & Rolled

October 26, 2019 to March 1, 2020

Imagine a museum exhibition inspired by the music that we love from the last fifty years. It would feature painting, photography, sculpture, installation and illustrations. This art could be paired with rocks, minerals, fossils and meteorites from the world-renowned Geology Collection at the Illinois State Museum.

This is ROCKED & ROLLED! A celebration of music that has defined the culture combined with timeless geological specimens embodying the structure of the earth from our permanent collection.

Rocked & Rolled features the artwork of Daniel McAdam, Judy & Bill Anderson, Yams, Christine Duray, Warren Linn, Larry Brogan, Dylan Fish, Plastic Crimewave, John Spear, Mac Blackout, Princess Etch-A-Sketch, Donna Castellanos, Ian Sherwin, Lee Grantham, Kelly Eddington, Melina Ausikaitis, Matthew Hong, Erika Iri5, and Ian Sherwin. The photography of Patty Ratzel, Doug Carr, Chris Young, and Jim Stark is also featured. The SPIN-IT record installation was organized by Robin Monique-Rios.
