About Gallery of Generations

This exhibit, located in the Artist Wing and backstage area of the Pavilion Stage, highlights the work of Russell Young featuring an impressive roster of musicians and celebrities of the 1960s, delightfully displayed in the colors and splendor that stardom allows. Intensified by the juxtaposition between Young’s signature diamond dust screen printing and the bucolic setting of the 1969 Woodstock festival, Gallery of Generations will leave viewers intrigued and in awe of legacy, celebrity culture, and fine art. Pieces include James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Marilyn Monroe.

Russell Young is a British-American artist best known for large silkscreen paintings using imagery drawn from recent history and popular culture. Young's artistic output includes painting, screen printing, sculpture, installations and film. Elon Musk, Barack Obama, Joaquin Phoenix, Jennifer Aniston, and Brad Pitt are among the famous fans of his work.
