"Guitar Heroes" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

For my birthday my wife and kid took me to see Guitar Heroes at the Met. If anyone is in the NYC area, I HIGHLY recommend seeing this.

 

It's an exhibit that traces luthiery from the 1600s Italy to modern Italian-American luthiers in NY. Included are instruments from Stradivarius (including a guitar!!), Martin (19th century), Gibson and Maccafari (sp?). There is a strong focus on mandolins and archtop guitars from D'Angelico, D'Aquisto, and Monteleone. The Monteleone guitars are innovative and insanely beautiful. There are also notable instruments that are/were owned by Chet Atkins, Grant Green, Jim Hall, Mary Kay, Mel Bay and Steve Miller.

 

It's totally awesome.

Since I live in Queens, I've got no excuse NOT to go.....

 

Down the block from Archie Bunker, but he ain't there no more..... he wasn't a guitar fan, anyway.

It'll be around until the 4th of July.

 

With my classes wrapping up for the semester, I should be able to catch this exhibit before it's gone.

 

Hey, maybe a few Forum Members might plan on checking it out at the same time, that'd be pretty cool...

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?
