New displays for Woodstock, the Wailers, and more

In MIM’s ever-changing galleries, there is always something new for guests of all ages to see and hear. The Artist Gallery, which celebrates some of the world’s most influential artists, recently added new displays for the iconic Woodstock music festival, reggae group the Wailers, jazz fusion guitarist Al Di Meola, and the Golden West Singers, a duo composed of pedal steel guitarist Bud Isaacs and his wife Geri Mapes.

The Woodstock exhibit features instruments played by some of the festival’s original performers, including folk artist Joan Baez, Creedence Clearwater Revival drummer Doug Clifford, guitarist Carlos Santana, singer-songwriter John Sebastian, and drummer Keith Moon and singer Roger Daltrey of the Who. At the other new exhibits, guests can see highlights such as Di Meola’s signature PRS electric guitar; Isaacs’s pedal steel guitar, which dramatically influenced the sound of country music; and instruments played by the Wailers, including a partial Yamaha D9000 drum set used by Carly “Field Marshal” Barrett and a Kent electric bass played by Aston “Family Man” Barrett.
