    This was a fantastic exhibit - well done to all involved.  Really like some of the original art for some of the posters over the years.

    I really loved it. So glad I got to do it while being here. Great job. 
    This show, another show, a show here and a show there.

    How long of a duration of time would you recommend to carve out enough time for this exhibit?
  • tschavtschav Posts: 1,486
    It's great! Depending on how much you want to browse, you can go through it quickly... but lots of good stuff to keep you around (even if you saw the museum at PJ20). Large space, smaller crowd makes it easy to move around. Nirvana exhibit was nice to, but nowhere near this level of love.

    This was a nice surprise - archive of all show setlists and ticket stubs.

    I'd recommend 30-45 minutes, but it could take a little longer depending on your own pace. There are over 500 artifacts total, so it depends on how much you want to analyze everything.

    I have a few questions:

    Is there any description of the Andy Wood statue? There are so many little things in it and I would love to know the artist’s vision.

    Also, what will happen to the message boards?

    I'll have to check with the curator about that because I'm not exactly sure. As for the statue, I know it was commissioned by Jeff but I'm not sure as far as the artist's vision. I'm off for a few days, but I'll see what I can find out for you.

    I know you already got the answer to the first question from the Rolling Stone article that was posted, but I asked the curator about the message boards. When the time comes for the exhibition to end, he is going to offer them to the band to see if they want them for the archive. If for some reason they decide not to take them, we'll keep them for storage. Let me know if I can help with anything else!

    Just FYI to everyone, a VERY COOL little birdie who I met on Cloud Nine told me that currently there's no end date to the exhibit, although that means there's no way to know how long it will be up.  For now, hopefully until the end of the year.  So the more we all go and rave about it publicly, the better!  Maybe it'll stay up longer?

    I was in Seattle for the Friday show and was able to make the public opening day of the exhibit on Saturday.  I generally find museums quite boring but this exhibit is truly exceptional and I'm so glad I was able to see it.  My favorite thing was a device that allows you to click on a show you've been to and then see an image of the handwritten set list for that show.  There is also a promotional poster from a RHCP/PJ/Nirvana show in the early 90s.  What a show that must have been! Anyway the collection as a whole is outstanding and I highly recommend this exhibit it to any PJ fan or even anyone who has ever heard of PJ.

    We spent 90 minutes easily, there's video and a slide show to watch. Well worth a visit!
    Is this where the show list goes?

    For that, I am grateful.

    Great exhibit! We traveled from Brazil to one of the Seattle shows and attended the exhibit on Friday. It was amazing. The MoPop staff was great as well. We loved Seattle and hope to come back soon  :)

    My friend was at that show. Said the energy was nuts.

    Maybe the OP can link my page with this one so everyone has a chance to see this great exhibit.
  • I heard at Thurs night party they played the night 1 show - anyone know if that video is available anywhere?
