Iconic rock & roll exhibition extended through June at Holocaust Museum

In response to visitor demand, The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) will extend its immensely popular exhibition, Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution, through Sunday, June 30.

The exhibition, which was originally scheduled to close Feb. 10, explores the extraordinary life of renowned music promoter Bill Graham (1931- 1991) who helped launch and promote the careers of countless artists including the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones. It also traces the indomitable spirit of a man brought to the United States as an 11-yearold Jewish refugee fleeing the Nazis, fueling a lifelong passion and advocacy for social justice.

Through memorabilia, photographs, archival concert footage, historical and new video interviews, ephemera, and psychedelic art, Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution is both a deeply personal reflection on Graham’s life and an exploration of how Graham helped transform rock music into the immersive, multi-dimensional, and highly lucrative phenomenon of rock theater that persists today.

The exhibit was organized and circulated by the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, in association with the Bill Graham Memorial Foundation, and made possible by the support of Alex Graham, David Graham, and Danny Scher.

The Florida Holocaust Museum is located at 55 5th St. S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. For more information, go to flholoaustmuseum.org or call (727) 820-0100.
