Museum’s Biggest Show
To Feature Photos Of Madonna,
Cher, All Of Rock’s Greatest
By LIBBY CUDMORE
Madonna is coming to Cooperstown.
So is David Bowie.
Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Tina Turner will be here too, part of “Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits,” due to open April 2 at The Fenimore Art Museum.
“There are more than 100 pieces to this collection,” said curator Chris Rossi. “It’s the largest show we’ve ever put on.”
Ritts’ “Rock Portraits” debuted at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2015.
“There’s a whole different element to his rock portraiture. It’s not just the visual connection, there’s a sonic connection as well,” said Greg Harris, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame president (and a CGP graduate.)
