Tangled up in black and white: Bob Dylan photo exhibit coming to Minnesota


From folk musician to rock-n-roll icon, a traveling photo exhibit of Bob Dylan will make its first stop in the United States in the singer's hometown.

The City of Hibbing, in partnership with the Los Angeles-based Grammy Museum, plans to bring "Daniel Kramer: Photographs of Bob Dylan" to the Paulucci Space Theater in Hibbing, Minnesota, according to the museum's website.

"Daniel Kramer spent one year photographing Bob Dylan — and what a year it was," Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli said in a press release. "Through his photographs, Kramer captured Dylan's spirit and musical evolution and gave the world an early glimpse into the life of an American legend."

The exhibit, which explores the major milestones in Dylan's career and how they impacted the rock explosion that came to define the 1960s, will open on May 23 with the start of Dylan Days and run through Aug. 23, Aaron Brown, one of the founders of Dylan Days, wrote on his blog, Minnesota Brown.

"It’s our chance to share Hibbing, share Bob Dylan’s hometown with the world," Jennifer Hoffman Saccoman, Hibbing city councilor who helped organize the event, told the Hibbing Daily Tribune. "The exhibition will not only serve as a musical reflection, but a cultural one as well."

Brown says other local collectors will also contribute to the exhibit for its stop in Hibbing.

This will be the first United States stop. It debuted at the British Music Experience in London in 2012 and was there until February 2013. It was most recently in Paris, the newspaper says.

The exhibit will be free to the public.
