GLENDALE, CA—Forest Lawn Museum presents Revolutions 2: The Art of Music, an exhibit that celebrates the artists behind some of the most admired and enduring visuals and graphic art in music of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
On view at Forest Lawn Museum from through August 2, Revolutions 2 commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the original Revolutions exhibition and marks the latest presentation in Forest Lawn Museum’s heritage of exciting and popular exhibitions.
The exhibit features artists who created beautiful and thought-provoking album and CD covers, posters and other fine art music lovers have come to know over the years. Revolutions 2 gives insight into the creative behind-the-scenes work that continues to inspire generations of music and art enthusiasts.
Spotlighting the visual artists, the recording artists and the record companies that shaped the music industry, Revolutions 2 displays the original form of mass-produced art that helped sell the music. Included in the exhibit are handmade illustrations, large-scale paintings, photographs, and even sculptures that spotlight the often overlooked and painstaking process behind the music.
Renowned in the music, arts and photography world, these visual artists have had some of the greatest influence on the evolution of graphic art aligned with the world’s best musicians.
From Black Sabbath’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album art to The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s iconic Fillmore East to illustrations for Rolling Stone magazine, more than 35 artists are represented in more than 175 artworks loaned for this important exhibition.
Revolutions 2 is open to the public, and will run from through August 2, 2015 at the Forest Lawn Museum, Forest Lawn-Glendale, 1712 S. Glendale Blvd., Glendale. Admission and parking are free. Call 800-204-3131 or visit www.forestlawn.com for more information.
