Celebrate the Legends of Rock ’n Roll
The Men’s Council of Phoenix Art Museum presents Lost Negatives of Rock & Roll, an exhibit of rare and casual photos taken of legendary artists of the 1960s, including Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, The Band, Kris Kristofferson, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield and more.
