The Art of Album Covers

Back in the day, when I was active in my local art league, I had an idea to put on an art show comprised of album covers. I had a large enough supply of album covers that I could have supplied a nice sized show on my own.

I’m pretty sure the league would have let me put on such a show despite the issue that album cover art is much more graphic art than fine art. In the end, I never got up the courage to ask. Reading about this cover art show at the¬†Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum makes me wish I had.

The Fine Art of Rock” show is running until November; so if you are anywhere near Memphis I recommend checking it out. Btw – Memphis is great vacation stop if you haven’t been there before.
