An artistic eye and a musical soul merge beautifully in the large-scale, stunning works to be displayed in Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photographs, an upcoming Columbus Museum exhibition that opens on December 10, 2011. The show will be on view through April 1, 2012, before touring through several major museums across the Southeast.

This exciting exhibition is organized by the Columbus Museum and is guest curated by Christopher Murray of Govinda Gallery in Washington, D.C. Through the medium of photography, each artist in this exhibition has captured rock and roll’s most notable and memorable figures of the last five decades with images that are startling, poignant and remarkable. Working with the photographers and their estates and using the original negatives and chromes, Murray has collaborated with David Adamson of Adamson Additions to create prints using the finest digital technology available. Bursting with richness and detail, the resulting prints breathe new life into these photographs.

The exhibition consists of 40 monumental prints by 20 artists. Each framed image measures 46 x 53 inches. The exhibition includes work by: Harry Benson, Joel Brodsky, Danny Clinch, Barry Feinstein, Claude Gassian, Greg Gorman, Art Kane, Dan Kramer, Gered Mankowitz, Jonathan Mannion, Jim Marshall, Mick Rock, Mark Seliger, Kate Simon, Pennie Smith, Frank Stefanko, Jürgen Vollmer, Dick Waterman, Alfred Wertheimer and Baron Wolman. Musicians photographed include Little Richard, Elvis, The Beatles, Son House, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain and Tupac Shakur, among others.
