Jews, Rock and Roll Traveling Pop Up Museum

Jews, Rock and Roll Traveling Pop Up Museum Jews, Rock and Roll Traveling Pop Up Museum tells the story of Jews in America, illustrating the history and influence of Jews in popular music.

Jews, Rock and Roll, a traveling Pop Up Museum, tells the story of Jews in America, illustrating the history and influence of Jews in popular music from the 1930’s to today’s pop stars. This exhibit explores how a small group of immigrants had such a significant and positive influence in shaping American pop culture. Audiences will gain a rich understanding of Jewish identity and ethnicity by exploring the development of jazz, blues, R&B, pop music, and of course the business of music. This exhibit will include stories of great musicians, but also of the people who helped make American popular music what it is: the Chess Brothers and Rick Rubin, Greil Marcus and Clive Davis, Milt Gabler and Moe Asch. Focusing on the stories of these people and their role in the evolution of American popular music, opens a rich conversation about the intersection between ethnicity, religion, and popular culture, and how the margins of American culture help define the mainstream. Jews, Rock, and Roll will tour as a traveling exhibit for traditional museums, exhibition spaces, and “Pop-up Museums” in short-term storefront rentals in 10 to 15 cities across North America. Over 500,000 people will see the 5,000 sq. ft. exhibit over two-three years.
