The exhibition “Henry Diltz Rock ’n’ Roll Photography: Woodstock and Friends” will be on display beginning Aug. 23 at the West Gallery of the Brauer Museum of Art on the Valparaiso University campus. Legendary rock ’n’ roll photographer Henry Diltz is considered to be the definitive chronicler of the Woodstock generation. For more than 40 years, he has captured iconic images of major musical figures from the 1960s and 1970s, including the Doors; Crosby, Stills and Nash; and Joni Mitchell. His photographs have appeared in magazines, books, and on album covers.  For this exhibition, curator Robert Sirko, Valparaiso University associate professor of art, has gathered key images from Diltz’s career. The exhibition will be on display from Aug. 23 to Nov. 18. An opening reception, free and open to the public, takes place at the museum at 7 p.m. on Aug. 26. This collection offers viewers a fine opportunity to cherish cultural icons of the Woodstock generation in a way that has been captured by none other. The Brauer Museum of Art is open to all ages and would be specifically enjoyed by art admirers of photography, rock ’n’ roll and the Woodstock generation.
