Step into another era in our You Are There exhibition series. Historic photographs are brought to life three-dimensionally, right down to the actors playing the people in – and around – the images. Become part of the story and see, hear and touch history because … You Are There.
Now through May 28, 2022 – You Are There 1927: Gennett Studio. The musical recording business of the Starr Piano Company and its Gennett label lasted less than two decades. However, the ripple effects of the music created in this small Richmond, Indiana, studio had far-reaching effects. Jazz, blues, country, and gospel artists who recorded there helped define American music for generations and continue to influence modern music on a global scale. Gennett produced some of the earliest recordings of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Bix Beiderbecke and Hoagy Carmichael.
