Ferry Cross the Mersey: The British Invasion
Open to the public through November 9, 2014
Six Strings as Canvas: Art Guitars from the Fender Custom Shop
The British Invasion reinvigorated the rock and roll landscape and paved the way for the artistic and commericial breakthroughs that would come in the second half of the 60s. Ferry Cross the Mersy is an exhibition of framed photographs and period artifacts that capture some of the British Invasions acts of the early 1960s both onstage and behind the scenes.
Our new Fender exhibit tells an important story-how craftsmanship found its way in the context of the machine-age guitar building. The guitars in this exhibit show some of the Custom Shop's outstanding examples of Art Guitars.
