Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics exhibit
Monday March 2, 2020 to Monday December 7, 2020
From the moment rock and roll hit the airwaves, it has played a crucial role in politics and social movements around the world.
This one-of-a-kind exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power & Politics,” explores the power of rock to change attitudes about patriotism, peace, equality, and freedom.
Using video, multimedia, photographs, periodicals, and artifacts, “Louder Than Words” showcases the intersection between rock and politics. It explores how artists exercise their First Amendment rights, challenge assumptions and beliefs, stimulate thought and effect change. The exhibition opens March 2, 2020, and will be on display through December 13, 2020 in the Ansary Gallery of American History.
