Padzieski Gallery honors Detroit rock music history Sept. 9-Oct. 8

The Dearborn Community Arts Council, Padzieski Art Gallery and '60s Girl Productions present “An Exhibition of Detroit Rock Posters and Photography” with contributions from area artists beginning with an Opening Party & Reception on Friday, Sept. 9, from 6-8 p.m. and closing Saturday, Oct. 8.

The exhibition closing date of Saturday, October 8 will also be a major, all-day celebration at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center of the 50th Anniversary of Detroit’s legendary Grande Ballroom re-envisioned in the 1960s by Dearborn’s “Rock Royalty” Russ Gibb (visit thegrandeballroom.com for tickets and more info). The concert will feature The Yardbirds, Frijid Pink and many more.

Southeast Michigan’s important contribution to the art and photography of the '60s is not always appropriately recognized, especially in the realm of counterculture and psychedelic poster art. While some historians acknowledge San Francisco and Detroit as equally central to the art’s early formation, this exhibition presents the outstanding work of award-winning photographers Leni Sinclair and John Collier as well as world-famous poster artists Gary Grimshaw, Carl Lundgren, Dennis Loren and Mark Arminski, providing an opportunity for a second look at their social role and continuing impact.

“An Exhibition of Detroit Rock Posters and Photography” covers 1966 to 2016 and will include never-before-seen images of Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Bob, Seger, Jim Morrison and David Bowie - as well as iconic photographs of the MC5, John Lennon, Prince, and Jimi Hendrix. Original posters and prints of The Who, The Stooges and Donovan to Patti Smith, Kid Rock and The White Stripes will also be displayed and available for sale.
