Last month we reported on the new “Play It Loud” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We explained the monumental significance of this event and the eventual reverberations that will be felt throughout the Vintage Concert poster Market.

The exhibit is now open and mainstream media can’t get enough of this exhibit. Seems like The Beatles, Stones, Hendrix and the rest of our 1960’s musical icons hold a lot more mass market interest and appeal than Rembrandt and Picasso!

CBS put together a wonderful story that was broadcast nationwide and is available around the world. We are all readers of this blog to checkout the story here.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has announced the opening of their “Play It Loud” exhibition on April 9th. The exhibit is being heralded as the first major museum exhibition of Rock and Roll instruments.

In addition to the instruments, a large number of Vintage Concert Posters will be featured!

The fact the most important and influential art museum in the world is featuring a rock and roll exhibition further cements the immense historical importance and appeal of authentic artifacts of this era.

This marks a moment in time where our hobby is truly taking center stage. This blog has reported extensively on recent museum exhibitions of Bill Graham, The Rolling Stones and the 50th Anniversary of The Summer of Love.

In each case, these exhibits have exposed several hundred thousand people to the importance of this era and has led to a surge of interest in Vintage Concert Posters.

The bottom line is that what was once a niche hobby has now been transformed into a legitimate category of art that is being exhibited in the most important museums around the world!

It’s never been more exciting to be a collector than RIGHT NOW! We will give a full report on the exhibition in coming weeks.
