New work up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art - Play it Loud

In connection with New Project, I had the opportunity to help build and paint the stages and cases used to display the instruments for the exhibit ‘Play it Loud’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

”The exhibition is co-organized with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and will present approximately 130 instruments alongside posters and costumes. Many of rock's most celebrated and recognized instruments will be featured, representing artists across generations and subgenres. In addition to institutional and private collectors, many musicians are lending their performance and recording instruments.”

Now on display from April 8 - October 1, 2019. 

I was lucky enough to speak to Max Cavalera at the opening reception about his music. (His guitar is included in the collection) A BIG FAN of his work… I had so many questions that I wanted to ask that I can only remember now in retrospect. Haha, hopefully I didn’t make too big of a fool of myself.
