Thursday, November 2, 2017

Opening Thursday, November 2, the show will feature more than 50 effects pedals from around the world — many of them rare, one-of-a-kind and collectible — alongside large-scale photographic displays, music samples and an interactive installation that allows visitors to channel their inner Jimi Hendrix.

“The show is whimsical, yet provocative in many instances,” says Light, referring to some of the pedals wrapped in more risque political and sexual imagery.
