EXHIBIT CLOSES FEBRUARY 17, 2019

Campus Martius has partnered with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, OH to bring the renowned photography exhibit “Girls to the Front” to our historic museum.

Board member Jenny Powers noted, “These incredibly talented women were fantastic performers with a need to be noticed, and that’s just what they did: GET NOTICED!”

Everything about “Girls to the Front” is larger than life, starting with the 42 one-of-a-kind photos by renowned rock photographer Anastasia Pantsios. Photos of female rock icons Tina Turner, Patti Smith, Joan Jett, and Grace Slick are just a few of the amazing women you’ll see honored in this exhibit. “Girls to the Front” finally puts these pioneering women front and center which is precisely where they belong.

“While we would not necessarily compare the journey of these women’s struggles to those of the pioneers who originally inhabited what would become the Northwest Territory, in their own way, these rock ‘n roll pioneer women were trail blazing their way to fame at a time when rock ‘n roll was almost exclusively a male domain”, noted LeAnn Hendershot, Museum Administrator.

Stop in Campus Martius Museum today to see this exhibit before it's gone!
