The Art of the Highwaymen Jan. 15 - March 22, 2015 • Experience the beauty of the Highwaymen Paintings, not just for the stunning landscapes of Florida, but also for their true rags to riches story; one that began in the trunk of a car, but now finds itself in prestigious museums.
Long Way to the Top: Hard Rock in Orlando, 1977-1985 Exhibition April 4 - May 31, 2015 • In the late 1970s and early ‘80s, Orlando shook off the disco fad and cemented its place as a rock and roll town. Big name rock acts played at venues like the Tangerine Bowl’s Rock Superbowl – and big names recorded and mixed their tracks here, too. Recording studios like Bee Jay Records drew heavy-hitting rock acts to Orlando, and Central Floridians came to the shows in droves.
Explore yesterday’s concert venues and the state-of-the-art Bee Jay Recording Studios, where major bands like Judas Priest and Molly Hatchet mixed platinum records. See vintage recording studio relics and artifacts of Orlando’s rock and roll history. Experiment with tracks on an interactive mixing board.
