People enjoy the last day of the Woodstock exhibit


People had one last chance today to see the Woodstock exhibit at the Huntsville Museum of Art.

People who came out got to go on a guided tour to learn more about the works by Elliot Landy.

The exhibit showcases photos from the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and features artists like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. Museum docents say Landy had a police press pass to take pictures from anywhere at the festival, allowing him to capture the entire event.

Museum Docent, Brendalee Fabella-Knoell, said, “Because of who he was, he was able to just go backstage, go through the crowds. He was able to go everywhere. That really helped with getting a lot of these really famous pictures.”

According to the Huntsville Museum of Art website, Elliot Landy is well known for his classic rock pictures. He was also one of the first photographers who mainly shot musicians and concerts to be recognized as an artist.
