Thanks to the help of The Byers-Evans House Museum, during Rock Ballets, the Performing Arts complex at Pinnacle Charter School's lobby will be transformed into a gallery exhibit of sixties rock icons. The full exhibit, Lisa Law: Flashing on the Sixties, was first mounted earlier this year at The Byers-Evans House Museum Gallery. A smaller collection of works from the exhibit will be on display for Rock Ballets patrons to enjoy before and after the performance as well as during intermission.

With her Honeywell Pentax camera in hand, Lisa Law captured the genesis of a new era. Whether she was backstage with The Beatles, Otis Redding, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Velvet Underground or The Byrds; taking promotional photographs of Janis Joplin and Big Brother; helping feed hundreds of thousands at Woodstock; or at home maing dinner for Bob Dylan; her passion for photography grew into a profession. Join us for this fascinating flashback to the sixties featuring original photographs and rock posters by Lisa Law.
