Bob Dylan Gets EMP Exhibit

Published: 2004-12-01
The Experience Music Project in Seattle, Washington, which offers interpretive and interactive exhibits showcasing significant figures in music history, will be running an exhibit on Bob Dylan, one of the most influential figures in folk/rock history, until September 5, 2005. Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956-1966 follows him from his humble beginnings in Hibbing, Minnesota as Robert Zimmerman, son of a store owner, to his iconic status in the music world. The exhibit ends with what the EMP dubs as the artists three greatest works, Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde.

The exhibit features over 150 artifacts from the living legends life including Dylan's guitar, typed and handwritten lyrics, concert posters, autographed albums, and dozens of photographs. Four films exhibiting aspects of Dylan's career will also be available for viewing. In addition, seven listening stations will be available for the public to listen to material from the 10 year period under examination. A one hour audio tour is also available. It is not yet apparent if the exhibit will travel to other cities after September 5, as have previous EMP exhibits.
