Raeanne Rubenstein: Shooting Stars celebrates the more-than-five-decade career and enduring artistic legacy of famed photographer Raeanne Rubenstein (1945-2019), whose one-of-a-kind photographs have featured Bob Dylan, Debbie Harry, Jimi Hendrix, Dustin Hoffman, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Kiss, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Yoko Ono, the Who, Andy Warhol, Robin Williams and Country Music Hall of Fame members Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and Jerry Lee Lewis.
A regular and sought-after contributor to many publications, including Life, People, and Rolling Stone, Rubenstein had a high-profile career, which the exhibit traces using a selection of photographs taken between 1969 and 1979, a decade largely influenced by her embrace of country music and its major players.
Free of charge and housed in the Museum’s first floor Community Corridor, the exhibit, which opened in December, will be expanded to the Museum’s Haley Gallery beginning March 10, and admission is still free.
