Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Celebrates Legendary Songwriter and Hall of Fame Inductee Paul Simon in New Exhibit Chronicling His Life, Career and Music.

“Paul Simon: Words & Music” paints a portrait of the artist through first-person narrative and items from the artist’s personal collection. CLEVELAND (Oct. 29, 2014) – The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is launching a new exhibit chronicling the life, career and creative inspiration of two-time Hall of Fame inductee Paul Simon, opening in Cleveland on October 30. “Paul Simon: Words & Music” will feature exclusive candid commentary gathered from hours of filmed interview footage that walks the audience through the personal story of Simon’s life and his creative process. This opening marks the Museum’s first-ever exhibit anchored by first-person narration by the artist. In addition to the autobiographical films, there will be videos of select performance highlights from Simon’s five-decade career and a collection of more than 80 artifacts spanning his early life and time with Simon & Garfunkel, through his solo career and to the present. “When Mr. Simon visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a tour last year, our idea to honor him with an exhibit was ignited and the process of creating this exciting new exhibition began,” said Greg Harris, CEO and president of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Simon’s narrative guides the visitor through the story of his life using an illustrative timeline to explore who he was as a young musician, his songwriting and creative process, and his experimentation and love of world music.  The museum curators worked for over eight months to create the exhibit, which will speak to generations of fans, as Simon’s music continues to do. The exhibit will also showcase more than 80 artifacts including several iconic guitars like Simon’s 1967 Guild F-30-NT-Spec used to write and record most of Simon & Garfunkel’s canon, and his first-ever guitar; handwritten lyrics spanning his career; personal summer-camp correspondence between a teenage Paul Simon and his friend Art Garfunkel; classic jackets and accessories; rare photos; historical documents; and other items. The exhibit is curated by Craig Inciardi and Karen L. Herman, who recently joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum as Vice President of Collections and Curatorial … Continue reading
