“By the time we got to Woodstock; We were half a million strong; And everywhere was a song and a celebration…”

"Woodstock at 50: Summer of Love" exhibition in the Monmouth Museum’s Main Gallery, June 8 - September 1, 2019, will explore the explosive era that gave life to this pivotal outdoor music and art fair held on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains during the Summer of 1969. It will feature the renowned documentary and rock photography of Woodstock photographer, Elliott Landy, vintage concert posters and vinyl, immersive audio and video experiences, 1960’s memorabilia and ephemera.

Artist Bio:

Elliott Landy, born in 1942, began photographing the anti-Vietnam-war movement and the underground music culture in New York City in 1967. He photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage, from 1967 to 1969. His images of Bob Dylan and the Band, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Richie Havens, and many others documented the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
