"We Are Golden" reflects on 50th anniversary of Woodstock
“We Are Golden: Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival and Aspirations for a Peaceful Future” opens this Saturday, March 30 at the Museum at Bethel Woods.
Along with iconic photos from photographers at the festival, the exhibition also features a large collection of Woodstock artifacts: the bass guitar played by Jack Casady of Jefferson Airplane, handwritten lyrics of Canned Heat’s “Goin’ Up the Country,” original handprinted signs, as well as interactive displays reflecting on the hopes, fears and expectations of the Woodstock generation. There’s even a photo area where you and your friends can dress up in tunics and hats and take a photo with the crowd of Woodstock.
Admission to the exhibition is included in regular museum admission, or just $5 for the exhibition only. There will be drop-in creative workshops for all ages every Saturday during the exhibit ($10 suggested donation).
“We Are Golden” is on display through December 31. (The museum will be closed during Mountain Jam, June 13-16, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day)
