About The Exhibit:

Highlighting 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 including James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Marilyn Monroe, will be displayed backstage at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, in the nonprofit's artist wing.

Purchases made will sustain art education programs, historic preservation efforts, and The Museum at Bethel Woods.
