Nov. 10 - Jan. 7

The Beatles at an early press conference. This exhibit was curated by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio.

Experience the excitment and the energy of the British Invasion in rock music of early 1960s, both onstage and behind the scenes, through 22 black-and-white and color photographs taken by Nicholas De Sciose and other photojournalists. All of the color prints are from the archives of 16 magazine, a music-oriented magazine for teens in the Sixties and Seventies. Gloria Stavers, publisher of 16, insisted on exclusive photos for her publications and, due to her influence as a tastemaker, photographers often complied.
