Grateful Dead: Now Playing at the New-York Historical Society

From now through July 4th, one of the nation's great repositories of history will play host to a remarkable and significant collection of cultural treasures: "The Grateful Dead – Now Appearing at the New-York Historical Society" is the first-ever traveling exhibition of materials on loan from the Dead's own vast archive of art, documents, photographs and memorabilia, which the band donated in 2008 to the University of California at Santa Cruz.

Among the highlights of the exhibition are: some of the most unforgettable Grateful Dead artwork, ranging from early concert posters and album covers to some of the decorated envelopes containing ticket requests; mailings with news & tour announcements; concert memorabilia; instruments, including Jerry Garcia's "Rosebud", Bob Weir's "Cowboy Fancy" guitars and a Pigpen harmonica.
