WHAT: Rock ‘n’ roll – or at least its colorful history in Sacramento – is here to stay. An exhibit in the University Library Gallery of posters and other memorabilia donated to Sacramento State represents the first official showing of the collection that illustrates a significant part of the city’s rock music history. 

The exhibit is pulled from the Sacramento Rock & Radio Collection, which includes 3,500 local original concert posters, handbills, and memorabilia donated by Dennis Newhall, founder of the now-closed Sacramento Rock & Radio Museum. The material is evidence of Sacramento’s status as a musical hotbed during an important era of rock.

Over 60 concert posters and a Grateful Dead art piece will be on display Friday, Nov. 1-Friday, Dec. 13 in the University Library Gallery, all from Sac State’s Sacramento Rock & Radio Collection.

The Gallery hours are: Tuesday-Friday, 10:30-3:30.More than 60 items are on display, with highlights including Grateful Dead art pieces and a poster featuring the Jimi Hendrix Experience for a concert at then Sacramento State College. 

A highly anticipated panel discussion with Newhall and rock poster artists is scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13. The event is open to the public.

WHEN: The exhibit is open 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, Nov. 1 - Dec. 13. The panel discussion is scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13. All events are free and open to the public.
