"Suggested" admission is $3 (pay what you wish).

Beat Memories presents an in-depth look at the Beat generation as seen through the lens of visionary American writer Allen Ginsberg (1926–1997). Although well known for his poetry, Ginsberg was also an avid photographer. He captured the people and places around him in spontaneous, often intimate snapshots. The exhibition features 94
black-and-white photographs, including portraits of figures such as William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Jack Kerouac, along with self-portraits. The images not only are revealing portrayals of celebrated personalities, but also convey the unique lifestyle and spirit that characterized what came to be known as the Beat Generation.
