Linda McCartney photos at Delaware Art Museum


January 18, 2001|By Karin Remesch

More than 50 photographs by Linda McCartney show the world of musical celebrity from within when the exhibit "Linda McCartney's Sixties - Portrait of an Era" opens tomorrow at its only venue in the mid-Atlantic region, the Delaware Art Museum. The one-woman photography exhibition by the late wife of former Beatle Paul McCartney features color and black and white images of such music legends as the Rolling Stones, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, the Doors, Janis Joplin, B. B. King, Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin.

The photos were shot during concerts and spontaneous moments offstage. In conjunction with "Linda McCartney's Sixties," the museum presents a complementary exhibition of 1960s-era art and media, including vintage psychedelic posters promoting concerts at San Francisco's Fillmore West concert hall and the documentary video, "Linda McCartney - Behind the Lens," produced in 1992 for BBC.

The exhibition is on view through March 18 at the museum, 2301 Kentmere Parkway in Wilmington, Del. Hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $2.50-$7 and free 4 p.m.-9 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 a.m.-noon Saturdays.
