It has just been announced that the phenomenal “Bill Graham and The Rock and Roll Revolution” exhibit that has already appeared in Los Angeles and San Francisco, is now making its way east to Philadalphia!
The exhibit will open 9/16/16 at The National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, Pa. and will run through 1/16/17. The exhibit features over 200 pieces of memorabilia that covers the entirety of Graham’s life and career. The vast majority of pieces in the exhibit are the very same concert posters that have become so sought after by collectors. This news guarantees that a mega bright spotlight will continue to be focused on Vintage Rock Concert Posters in general, and Fillmore posters, in particular. More importantly, with each new museum retrospective, there is a heightened recognition and appreciation for both the historical significance and artistic merits of these artworks. We continue to recommend collecting any and all issues pertaining to Bill Graham concerts.
Our specific advice continues to be the same: Buy the best possible posters you can afford. Buy one great poster instead of five middle of the road pieces. Buy Original First Printings whenever possible. Focus on the highest quality and earliest examples you can find.
Most importantly, understand and act on what you see happening here. Six or seven years ago, it would have been earth shattering news to hear about the appearance of Vintage Rock Concert posters in any major museum. Now, this is happening many times a year. No wonder demand for the best material is far out stripping the tiny available supply! What’s most exciting is that we believe we are just in the top of the second inning as far what you will eventually see develop in this exciting, emerging market. Stay tuned for a detailed report on the Philadelphia exhibit, as soon as it opens.
