I visited Columbus, Georgia and the Columbus Museum recently for the launch of Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photography. Govinda Gallery has been working for several years developing this touring exhibition with the Columbus Museum. This exhibition represents much of our work championing significant photographs documenting rock & roll, hip hop, and blues music. The exhibition is truly spectacular. Our hats are off to the Columbus Museum and their terrific staff for producing an extraordinary show. Please enjoy these installation photos of the exhibition and the covers for the Columbus Museum Fall 2011 and Winter 2011-2012 quarterly magazine The Muse, featuring the exhibition. Check out the touring schedule for Sound and Vision at the end of this post.
