ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE ON 60’S ROCK AND ROLL

Gig Harbor, WA, May 8, 2012—  The Harbor History Museum’s latest exhibit, With a Loving Eye: The Photographs of Jini Dellaccio, showcases the incredible, large-format photographs of renowned photographer Jini Dellaccio. While the exhibit displays many of her different subjects, Jini is most famously known for her images of 1960’s rock and roll legends, such as The Sonics, The Wailers, and Neil Young.

On May 19th, the Harbor History Museum will feature a panel of three northwest 60’s rock stars that Jini photographed: Bob Holden from Don and the Goodtimes, Jim Valley from Don and the Goodtimes and Paul Revere & the Raiders, and Steve Lalor of the Daily Flash. The panel discussion will focus on Jini Dellaccio’s impact on these rockers.

“We are very excited to have this panel of 60’s rock stars together for this discussion. I am looking forward to hearing their perspective on Jini’s photography.” says Sue Loiland, Executive Director.

The program will take place on Saturday, May 19th at 2:00pm. Admission to the panel is free for members and non-members pay admission plus $1.00. We suggest visitors get to the museum a half-hour before the program starts to ensure a seat for this program.
