A few days ago the International Bluegrass Music Museum (IBMM) canvassed its members in a trawl for bluegrass music posters.
Their plea, “If you have any posters you have considered donating to the International Bluegrass Music Museum, now is the time to do it”, came in advance of their fund-raising festival of music, ROMP 2013, which takes place during the three days June 27-29.
During ROMP 2013 the museum will open a new exhibit – Bluegrass in Posters.
Gabrielle Gray, director of the museum, elaborates ….
“We want to give our members an opportunity to contribute to this project by inviting you to donate posters for possible inclusion in the exhibit. We cannot guarantee that all the posters donated will be included in the exhibit, but we can guarantee that they will be given a good home at the museum, preserved for posterity, and possibly included in a future exhibit.”
However, if anybody has a poster that they would like to donate to the museum I am sure that IBMM would be pleased to receive posters from any source.
For more information please contact Forrest Roberts, Curator of Exhibits, by calling 270-926-7891 or by email.
