Medieval To Metal: The Art & Evolution Of The Guitar

May 1 - September 3, 2022

The Powerhouse • 1333 Camino Del Rio, Durango, CO 81301

Event Description

The Powerhouse will be hosting Medieval to Metal: The Art & Evolution of Guitar in the main exhibit gallery from May 1, 2022-September 3, 2022. Presented locally by Alpine Bank, this touring exhibition celebrates the artistic development of the guitar and encourages visitors to engage with interactives to learn about the science behind sound and recording. Developed by The National GUITAR Museum (NGM), this exhibit features 40 objects, ranging from the intricately inlaid oud to the transparent acrylic body of California's BC Rich guitars. Spanning centuries of design and craftsmanship, visitors have the opportunity to travel through the history of an object that is one of the most recognizable items on the planet.

Accompanying historical guitar displays, there will be hands-on interactives such as the Science of Recording and Exploded Acoustic, allowing visitors to see, touch, and learn about the components of an acoustic guitar and the evolution of the technology of producing music. Instruments will be available throughout The Powerhouse for visitors to play including an acoustic, electric, and lap steel guitar.
