The Fay Allison Gallery in the M.P. Library is showcasing immortalized photographs by the Rolling Stone Magazine through October, 20. The gallery will open from 7:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Fridays, and 4-9 p.m. on Sundays. There is no charge to view the exhibit.

Through the exhibition’s 35 framed photographs, contact sheets, and original Rolling Stone magazine covers, Backstage Pass presents an intimate view of a crucial period of cultural transformation in American history. Visitors will go “backstage” to see how photographic coverage of events such as Woodstock and The Day on the Green have contributed to our collective cultural memory.

In the 1960s and 70s, Rolling Stone provided a national voice to the counter-culture movement, and gave readers unprecedented access to musicians before the days of personal branding. The exhibition Backstage Pass is a compilation of photographs by Baron Wolman and the Early Years of Rolling Stone. The exhibition presents the decades of 1960s and 1970s, picturing writers, filmmakers and musicians who represented a fantasy realm of the rock-n-roll lifestyle.

As chief photographer for the Rolling Stones, Baron Wolman features icons like Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, and Frank Zappa. These artists defined one of the most important eras in rock-n-roll history and were guided to the creation of the “rock star” persona, from concert, to cover, to icon.

This must-see exhibition overall, encourages the understanding of how images can become historical cultural symbols and the lens of one artist’s camera can capture and help define one of the most important eras in rock-n-roll history.

    I remember Dweezil Zappa being annoyed that Rolling Stone published a drawing of his dad ,Frank holding a joint. Frank tried a pot a couple of times in the 60’s but did not like it .Furthermore he spoke out often against the use of drugs yet Rolling Stone publishes lies such as this. Frank ,in his lyrics indicated his dislike of this “magazine that defines their folklore (from “were turning again” they made him out to be a druggy and he was straight!
