Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg

When I found out that Allen Ginsberg also dabbled in photography I was surprised and intrigued. If you have not yet seen this photography exhibit or want to see it again, join me on one of the Thursday, reduced admission evenings.  Cost is only $5!  The museum will be open until 8pm.

I will be in line at 5pm and come out to the lobby again at 6pm and 6:30pm for those that want are coming later and want to meet up.

This exhibit ends on September 8th, so don't miss it!

    Great exhibit and insight into Allen Ginsberg's mind as almost every photograph had detailed hand-written captions. No need for some art critic to interpret the artist. Just sad that nobody showed up. At least I didn't see anyone that might have belonged to this meetup group.

      I know, and I was internally dealing with it when I came to the ticket desk. There I was told that I couldn't wear my backpack on my back. So I had to go back to the coat room and check it in. Then after I did so , in the exhibition room I realized my glasses were in the pack and I wouldn't be able to see some of the miniatures without them. There is a line where security starts to interfere with the intended activity, and I think this place crosses the line.

      Ian - that's the case at all larger museums I've been to. None of them allow you to wear your backpack. On your back that is, but you are allowed to carry it in your hand like a big purse. If you want to deprive yourself of the museum experience bc of that, you won't be going to any museums. And that would be a shame. Just plan for it, wear a jacket with pockets where you can stash your vitals and you'll have a good time.

    I'm with another Meetup group that's viewing the exhibit at 5:45 pm, but since the space is relatively small, we'll all run into each other.
