Area residents are invited to gain insight into the lives of some of the most well-known contemporary musicians of the 20th century as part of a free lecture presentation by photographer Baron Wolman at Owens Community College on Thursday.
The lecture, which is taking place in conjunction with the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery presenting the exhibit "Rock On: Photographs by Baron Wolman" through March 28, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts Studio Theatre. Owens' Center for Fine and Performing Arts is located on Oregon Road.
Admission to the event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
In 1967, Wolman was approached by Jann Wenner, the founder of "Rolling Stone", to become the publication's first chief photographer. For three years at the publication, Wolman's photographs were known for capturing the events and personalities as well as visualizing the music.
Over 30 photographs are on display in Owens' current "Rock On: Photographs by Baron Wolman" exhibit. Featured musicians within the photographs include James Brown, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Duke Ellington, Jim Morrison, Neil Young, Tina Turner, Chuck Berry, George Harrison and Joan Baez, among others.
In addition to the photographs, music-specific artifacts and collectibles from the 1880s through the 1980s are showcased in the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery.
