Short news: from September 7 until January 2013, you can visit the ‘Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power’ exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. It was put together by, and previously on display at, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio (see our previous post). The exhibition features objects, dresses, videos of several iconic female singers such as Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Cher, Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin and many more. See the photo above of two of Tina’s dresses.
“Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power is a provocative exhibition that illustrates the importance of women in the world of popular music from the 1920s to present day [...] Featuring more than 250 artifacts and performance videos, the exhibition moves through rock-and-roll eras, demonstrating how women have been engines of creation and change.”
