Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex to open in Soho in Nov.


Cleveland, OH- This fall, New York City’s love of music will hit a high note. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will open a 25,000 square foot ANNEX location in the heart of Soho at 76 Mercer Street. This experiential, technologically advanced exhibition will focus on the greatest moments in rock history and will resonate with everyone from the casual music fan to the seasoned rock enthusiast.

The Annex will take visitors beyond the typical museum experience, and engage people in a dynamic and immersive music journey that recalls some of the defining moments in rock and roll history through the artists that changed our world. Visitors will discover the moments ignited by music revolutionaries like John Lennon, Madonna, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. The exhibits will highlight rock and roll’s impact on music, allowing visitors to discover, or rediscover, their connection to it all.

“New York City has a longstanding reputation as the land of opportunity for aspiring artist and musicians, and as a result some of the most internationally-celebrated musical performers of this Century have had their start right here on our streets,” said Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “It’s only fitting that the role our City has played in launching the careers of so many of the world’s most talented artists be recognized and honored with the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex.”

The Annex will showcase selected artifacts from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s vast collection. The Annex will also extend the Museum’s mission to honor key cities that have helped shape the history of rock and roll.

“Establishing outposts like these is becoming a strategy of other major institutions,” said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Terry Stewart, citing the Guggenheim Museum of New York, Britain’s Tate Modern and the Louvre in Paris as examples. “These projects allow museums to extend their reach, but also provide space to travel exhibits and allow curators to display some of our priceless artifacts for the first time outside of Cleveland.”

The announcement was made today by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Billy Joel, Clive Davis, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Terry Stewart and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation CEO Joel Peresman.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Cleveland, Ohio

The iconic Museum in Cleveland, designed by I.M. Pei, is the centerpiece and starting point for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s telling of the story of rock and roll. The 150,000 square-foot facility celebrates the history and impact of rock music with exhibits, films, interactive kiosks, education programs and public events.

“Rock and roll is embedded in the history of our times and has changed the world around us,” said co-founder of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and editor and publisher of Rolling Stone Magazine Jann Wenner. “The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and now its extension, the Annex, help us to illustrate in a tangible way music’s impact on the cultural, social and political history of the modern era.”

The experience begins as soon as visitors enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex.

--Hall of Fame: This initial area pays tribute to each and every artist inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and introduces, ignites and primes the audience.

--Immersive Theater: An engaging and dynamic movie experience that uses immersive audio and visual technology to highlight some of the most explosive performance moments in rock history including Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, The Who and Patti Smith.

From this point on, visitors will receive a set of high-quality PX200 Sennheiser stereo headphones and a state-of-the-art wireless audio system. As visitors walk freely around the exhibit, they will hear only relevant music specific to the gallery zones they are experiencing.

--Roots & Influences: A visual and musical discovery of how yesterday’s music legends have influenced the chart-toppers at the forefront of today’s music scene; bringing to life musical timelines of genres such as R&B, Hip Hop and Blues Rock. Hear how the best selling albums of 50 Cent and Notorious B.I.G. have been shaped by the genius of James Brown, and how Velvet Underground has guided Coldplay’s expressive style.

--Moments to Movements: This area within the Annex will take visitors on a journey of the musical moments that created and defined powerful movements, and showcases many exciting and rare rock items. Examples include a white Vox electric guitar from The Beatles that has never been showcased elsewhere, the necklace Jimi Hendrix wore at Monterey Pop Festival in one of the most notable live performances ever, and the handwritten lyrics to ‘U.S. Blues’ by The Grateful Dead. An electrifying soundtrack brings these items to life throughout this gallery.

--New York Rocks: As an ongoing homage to a city that has been so integral in music history, the Annex will have a permanent “New York Rocks” exhibition that will include an oversized interactive map to highlight key locations around Manhattan that have musical significance, including Studio 54 and The Chelsea Hotel. The gallery also includes the notebook in which Billy Joel wrote all the lyrics for “The Stranger” album, the ‘Big Suit’ worn onstage by David Byrne in Talking Heads, and many of the physical elements, including the front awning and cash register, from the recently closed CBGB, the infamous club that is so entrenched in New York rock history.

--Cleveland Rocks: The Annex will include special exhibits and displays that give visitors a taste of the larger experience at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. These exhibits will showcase elements of the Cleveland Museum’s collection and engage in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame experience via visitation, membership, online participation and/or philanthropic support. --

Other highlights throughout include an untitled, handwritten poem by Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley’s motorcycle jacket, Michael Jackson’s velvet jacket from “We Are The World”, John Lennon’s Record Plant Piano, Bruce Springsteen’s 1957 Chevy and much, much more.About the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Days after the Twin Towers fell, thousands of first responders aided New York in its devastating crisis, giving Americans a great sense of hope. Seven years later, many of those heroes have been forgotten-and worse, over 15,000 have become gravely ill.

Steven Centore, author of the new book One of Them: A First Responder's Story, was one of the many who volunteered to assist in the immediate aftermath of the attack on September 11, 2001, and then during the eighteen-month-long recovery efforts.

Mr. Centore's book has shed light on the neglect of the first responders and caught the attention of New York musician Paul Zunno.

"After reading One of Them, I felt compelled to raise awareness about the great sacrifice that was made by these men and women," says the musician.

In an attempt to get involved, Mr. Zunno recorded the new single "Hold Me Up" and teamed up with John Feal, founder and president of the FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization created to provide financial assistance to first responders and educate the public about the effects 9/11 has had on their health.

"The attack didn't end on September 11," says Mr. Centore. "It continues to this day as first responders suffer from the aftereffects. It's almost like radiation poisoning after a nuclear attack-first come the initial victims and then, those who've been poisoned by the clouds of lethal dust."

As of today, the toxins at Ground Zero have affected:
• 4,517 people with upper respiratory ailments
• 3,857 with lower respiratory illness
• 398 with lung disease
• 2,616 with asthma
• 1,340 with sleep apnea
• 2,528 with heart conditions caused or worsened by 9/11

"And that's only what's been officially reported in medical records," says Mr. Centore. "There are a host of other ailments such as cancer, diseases affecting vital organs and mental health issues."

Mr. Zunno adds, "I'm a New Yorker and should have known about this much sooner. 'Hold Me Up' is probably one of the most personal songs I have ever written, and I wanted Steve, John and all of the responders to know that they have my support."

In an effort to assist Ground Zero workers, Mr. Zunno has decided to donate 100 percent of the profits from his new song (available for download on iTunes and to the FealGood Foundation. For more information, you can visit

"I think that if given the opportunity, most people would want to contribute to this cause," says Mr. Zunno. "Here's their chance to help while the political end of this gets worked out."

Graphic Arts Exhibition at The New York Public Library Sheds Light on Aesthetic and Social Ideals of Early 20th-Century Eastern Europe

The New York Public Library

The radical early 20th-century experiments in modern art and design of east-central and eastern Europe are explored in the exhibition Graphic Modernism from the Baltic to the Balkans, 1910-1935, opening October 5, 2007 at The New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library. The progressive writers and visual artists of this region relied on abstract compositions based on geometric forms to convey both aesthetic and social ideas. Their work represents a revolutionary attempt to create a new visual vocabulary appropriate for a modern era. The interplay between post-World War I national revivals and the broader European modernist artistic and literary movements of the early 20th century is evident in the approximately 60 works on paper, primarily printed materials (books, book jackets, periodicals, posters, and printed ephemera) in more than a dozen languages of eastern Europe. Drawn from eight departments and collections at The New York Public Library, this exhibition of eastern European modernism is the first of its kind organized by the Library, and many of the individual books and artifacts from the historic foundation collections of the Library are on display for the first time. Graphic Modernism will be on view through January 27, 2008 in the Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Gallery at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Admission is free. To complement the exhibition, there will be a free series of public programs at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, a free series of films at the Donnell Library Center, and a notable companion volume, Graphic Modernism from the Baltic to the Balkans, 1910-1935, published by The New York Public Library (see separate release). For further exhibition and program information, telephone 212.869.8089 or visit .

Companion Volume, Free Lecture Series, and Free Film Screenings, Complement Graphic Modernism Exhibition at The New York Public Library

The modernist movements of the early 20th century suffused the arts, the humanities, and the social beliefs of the time. There was a utopian faith in the power of art to transform reality: aesthetically, socially, and politically. In conjunction with the free exhibition Graphic Modernism from the Baltic to the Balkans, 1910-1935, on view from October 5, 2007 through January 27, 2008 at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, there is an accompanying Graphic Modernism Lecture Series at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library and a film series, Featuring...Modernism in Motion, at the Donnell Media Center, focusing on some of the other elements of this confluence of aesthetics and ethics, progressive design and directed action. A book of the same name, Graphic Modernism from the Baltic to the Balkans, 1910-1935, has been published by The New York Public Library as a companion volume to the exhibition.

The 2007/2008 season brings an international flavor to the Poetry Center, beginning with Nobel Prize-winning West Indian poet Derek Walcott (September 17). Mario Vargas Llosa, who hails from Peru, reads from his newest novel, Falling Man (October 15); Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian novelist, will appear with literary superstar Dave Eggers. Accompanying them is Sudanese civil war refugee Valentino Achak Deng, around whom Eggers based his latest fictionalized biography, What is the What (January 7); Ireland's Roddy Doyle and Scotland's A.L. Kennedy share the stage to present their newest writing (January 23); Turkish novelist Elif Shafak reads from her latest novel (February 11); and Hungarian Imre Kertész, winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Literature, returns to the Y in the spring. He is accompanied by his dear friend and countryman, pianist András Schiff, who also performs (April 17). The many poets who take the podium include Mary Jo Bang, Adam Zagajewski, Franz Wright and Li Young Lee. Finally, in the latest of several Poetry Center appearances, poet and translator Anne Carson reads some of her work (March 26).


The 92nd Street Y Poets' Theatre, which is the Poetry Center's ongoing series of verse dramas, plays, and theatrical adaptations of literary texts designed to emphasize language and the aural experience of theater, stages two productions this season—WILLIAM BLAKE AT 250, a one-person show by British actress Ruth Rosen (December 3), and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa and dramaturge Chad Gracia's adaptation of Gilgamesh, directed by Robert Scanlan (April 28). January brings a dramatic reading called SEVEN, a performance of monologues by seven award-winning playwrights, based on personal interviews and oral histories of seven inspiring women from some of the world's most troubled nations (January 21). The Poetry Center and Theatre for a New Audience offer a preview of TFANA's January 2007 production of SHAKESPEARE's Antony and Cleopatra, starring Emmy-winning actress Christine Baranski. Baranski reads scenes from the play with other cast members after which TFANA artistic director Jeffrey Horowitz talks with the play's director, Darko Tresnjak (March 3).


The Poetry Center presents the fourth season of AFTERNOON NIGHT TABLE, its series of daytime conversations with writers, hosted this year by award-winning journalist Roger Rosenblatt. Among those who discuss their work, their interests—and their reading choices—are Joyce Carol Oates (Nov 9), Garry Trudeau (Dec 5), Christopher Durang (Feb 15) and Garrison Keillor (Apr 9). BIOGRAPHERS & BRUNCH offers Janet Malcolm on Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas (October 7), Arnold Rampersand on Ralph Ellison (January 20) and Hermione Lee on Edith Wharton (April 13). CRITICS & BRUNCH series includes such varied speakers as biographer Judith Thurman (Oct 28) and Shakespeare scholar Eric Rasmussen (Mar 2).

The Psalms: A Reading and Conversation is our second event featuring translator Robert Alter, who discusses the 150 psalms with Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Marilynne Robinson (December 17). Finally, music legend Paul Simon appears as part of THE LYRICIST'S VOICE series to discuss the art of lyric writing with former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins (February 20).


The Poetry Center unveils a new children's reading series this season with A Wrinkle in Time at 45, featuring author Madeleine L'Engle's granddaughter, Charlotte Jones Voiklis. Ms. Voiklis reads from the book and talk about L'Engle's life and work (December 15). Next up is acclaimed actor Jim Dale, the voice behind the audio recordings of the entire Harry Potter series (February 16). In the spring, English Poet Laureate Andrew Motion reads some of his favorite poems for children (April 5) and the Poetry Center hosts A Tribute to Maurice Sendak (May 12), to celebrate the famed children's book author and illustrator's 80th birthday. The tribute features playwright Tony Kushner (Sendak's Brundibar collaborator) and composer Oliver Knussen (who wrote the opera version of Where the Wild Things Are from Sendak's libretto), along with other friends and colleagues.


For decades, the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center has served as a public literary salon and a place for writers to learn their craft. The legendary Poetry Center opened in 1939 with a reading by William Carlos Williams. In the following decades he was followed by virtually every great 20th century writer—Dylan Thomas, Elizabeth Bishop, W.H. Auden, Jorge Luis Borges and Langston Hughes, to name but a few. The tradition continues in 2006: the Unterberg Poetry Center's 67th Season. Today, the Center presents readings by poets, novelists and playwrights, and talks with critics, biographers and scholars. Through its Poets' Theatre, the Center produces masterfully written dramas performed by accomplished actors. The Center's extensive Writing Program gives working adults access to teachers who are practicing authors, a rarity outside M.F.A. programs. Community outreach programs offer high-school students access to world-famous authors and new immigrants literacy-training through literature. Young writers find support at the Center through annual readings that pair established writers with emerging writers; and The Discovery/The Nation poetry contest, for poets who have not yet published a book. The 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center is part of the 92nd Street Y Tisch Center for the Arts, which is endowed through the generosity of the Joan and Preston Robert Tisch family.


Founded in 1874 by a group of visionary Jewish leaders, the 92nd Street Y has grown into a wide-ranging cultural, educational and community center serving people of all ages, races, faiths and backgrounds. The 92nd Street Y's mission is to enrich the lives of the over 300,000 people who visit each year — both in person and through the Y's satellite, television, radio and Internet broadcasts. The organization offers comprehensive performing arts, film and spoken word events; courses in the humanities, the arts, personal development and Jewish culture; activities and workshops for children, teenagers and parents; and health and fitness programs for people of every age. Committed to making its programs available to everyone, the 92nd Street Y awards nearly $1 million in scholarships annually and reaches out to 7,000 public school children through fully-subsidized arts education programs.

On the 11th of July, Spink, one of the world’s oldest collectables auction houses will descend upon New York City to hold a sale of historic United States Paper Money. The collection, which is made up of nearly 600 lots, is estimated to fetch in excess of $1 million. The sale will feature notes as old as 1861 with estimates as high as $30,000.

For years people have discovered banknotes in drawers of old furniture, hidden under floorboards in some houses or stored away in bank vaults not opened for years on end.
One man, a foreigner who unfortunately must remain anonymous, made it his life’s mission to seek out these important pieces of American history and amass a fantastic collection. After the gentleman’s death his son inherited the anthology of notes and decided to allow the public a chance to purchase these fantastic pieces of paper money. It was decided that the collection could only be sold in the US and thus New York City was the obvious choice for such a prestigious sale.

The sale will take place at 10am on 11 July 2007 at Shreves Philatelic Galleries Inc., 145 West 57th Street, 18th Floor, NY, NY 10019. For collectors unable to attend the sale in person Spink offer an online bidding service, Spink Live, which allows bidders to listen and watch the auction in real time while bidding from the comfort of their own homes.

Notes for editors:

Notaphilists, collectors of banknotes, have existed since the first banknote was printed. It is believed that the VERY first banknote was a Ming Dynasty mulberry bark note from the 1368-1399 AD era.

The first circulated banknotes issued in the Americas came from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1690s, however the use of printed banknotes with set denominations was not put into place until the middle of the 18th century.
