New Rolling Stones Exhibit Now Open in Chicago

April 17th, 2017

On April 14, “Exhibitionism”, an exhibit in honor of The Rolling Stones, opened at Navy Pier. This exhibit started in London, traveled to New York, and has now made its way here to Chicago. Since the 1960’s, The Rolling Stones have been rocking the world and now you are able to get a glimpse of the early stages of their career up until now. Here’s what you can expect to see at this new installation.

 

The almost 18,000-sq. foot space holds nine different galleries and has an array of different, rare items (a little over 500 to be exact) for visitors to take a look at. These items come from the band’s private archive and some things that you will see include: unseen photos and footage, instruments, personal diaries, lyric books, onstage and offstage outfits, artwork and much more. One unique portion of this exhibit is that it includes a replica of the tiny flat that Jagger, Jones, Richards, and one of their friends shared in Chelsea at one point. The flat shows a bunch of plates, bottles, pots and pans, etc. lying around in this dirty, cluttered space.

 

Everything here is very interactive for the most part as well. One example would be a mixing-board that can be found in one of the rooms of the exhibit. Here, you can turn up and down the individual tracks of eight different songs. This means you can hear things like guitars, drums, vocals, keyboard, bass, etc. individually to get a full effect on how things really sound. In addition to this, there is also a 3-D presentation of the 50th anniversary performance of one of the major hits, “Satisfaction”.

 

The exhibit seems like it will be a very popular attraction, especially for the fans of this rock ‘n roll band. Ticket prices are as follows: $32-$35 for adults, $25-$27 for students, military, personnel, seniors (65+over), kids under 6 are free, and VIP tickets are $80. For more information regarding the exhibit, click here. The exhibit will be at Navy Pier until July 30 so be sure to check it out before it leaves town!
