New museum in Bethel, NY to honor Woodstock

Postby KarenZ » Sat Jun 14, 2008 10:29 am

Folks,

The new Museum at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY which opened on JUne 2, 2008 wants to jog your memory of the Age of Aquarius. :)

The Museum at Bethel Woods explores the unique experience of the 1969 WoodstockMusic and Art Fair, its significance as a culminating event of a decade of radical cultural transformation, and the ongoing legacy of the Sixties and Woodstock. Through personal stories, profiles, immersive multimedia exhibits, engaging programs and educational events, The Museum will encourage intergenerational dialogue about important ideas and issues relevant to today. The Museum will also help to preserve the historic site on which the 1969 Woodstock festival took place.

There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Thanks Karen I did look at it earlier today, I noticed this thread after Paddy commented. I even got directions from Mapquest to see if it might work into that trip that I "may" be taking to Niagra. Hmmm I guess I thought of Woodstock as further North in NY so I'm not sure if we will make it this trip, but it is someplace I would be sure to go to. I have some plans for summer vacation but have not confirmed all of them. My daughter is still in school :shock: But tomorrow is her last day :P . Just doesn't seem like summer "quite" yet
