Art: Rock photo exhibition - Elvis, Dylan, Beatles, more - rolls into Allentown Art Museum

Rock-and-roll music embodies the spirit of several generations, which is to say raucous and sometimes transgressive behavior by both musicians and their fans, idol worship and mass hysteria.These effects have been observed before, particularly in young people - remember crooners and bobby-soxers ? - but rock-and-roll has been an especially persistent and powerful shaper of popular culture. Why else would public television still be reviving musical acts from the 1960s to solicit contributions during periodic fund drives ? Now rock-and-roll has invaded the art museum, which you might not think would be a congenial venue for an art form that represents the antithesis of quiet, solitary contemplation.
