The Annenberg Space for Photography is one of my favorite museums. It’s more laid back and less pretentious than your average museum and best of all, it’s free! If you’ve never been, there’s no better time to start. Their current exhibit is “Who Shot Rock & Roll” and showcases some of the most iconic photographs of rock musicians.
The photographs are a mix of publicity stills, album covers, stage performances and candid behind the scenes moments of rock & roll from the 1950’s to present day. After you see the photos you can learn the stories behind them. In the center of the museum is an open screening area showing a documentary featuring interviews with the photographers who followed these musicians around and had an all-access pass to their lives.
The exhibit is open till October 7th, and again, it’s free. More info here.
