The New York Times published today a story about “premier rock pianist” Chuck Leavell being made an honorary forest ranger by the United States Forest Service. Chuck is known best perhaps for his work with the Rolling Stones. Not as well known is that Chuck has been a friend of forests for a long time and as the New York Times wrote today, is a “dedicated conservationist”.
By a happy coincidence, Chuck is presenting a program tonight at the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Georgia, where Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photography is being featured. That exhibition is co-organized by the Columbus Museum with Govinda Gallery. We are honored that An Evening with Chuck Leavell is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition.
Chuck will have a chance to see his friends, the Rolling Stones, close up at the Columbus Museum in Gered Mankowitz’s large scale portrait of the Rolling Stones which is featured in the exhibition. Here is a link to our webpage for Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photography which includes the tour schedule for the exhibition.
