In the 1970s, photographer Henry Horenstein shot album covers for upstart bluegrass label Rounder Records. But in his off-hours, he soon became unofficial photographer to the culture of country musicians great and small, and their dedicated fans. It’s a world that looks quite a bit like country songs sound: full of hard-working operators and lonely dreamers, half-full glasses and scorpion belt buckles, and a few tall hats, boots, and bottles as well. It’s the world of the honky tonk.
Join us on Tuesday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. for a Conversation with Henry Horenstein, including audience Q&A. This event will offer insight into Horenstein’s honky tonk images currently on display at the museum, his inspirations and influences throughout his career, and the wide variety of subjects he’s photographed over the years. A beautiful catalog of Horenstein’s photography from the exhibit is also available for purchase from The Museum Store.
This is a free event, but donations to the museum are appreciated as they help us to provide free and low-cost educational and public program.
