"The Beatles saved the world from boredom." -- George Harrison
Join Indiana Humanities for an intimate chat with one of the country's preeminent rock & roll scholars about the work of one of the most important bands of all time. Glenn Gass will chat about the iconic White Album from The Beatles as well as other tales from rock & roll history. To set the stage, attendees will be surrounded by the exhibit We Buy White Albums from artist Rutherford Chang, which incorporates 761+ White Albums. The conversation will be moderated by Vess Ruhtenberg, a local artist and musician who has traveled the world performing with bands ranging from punk rock legends the Zero Boys to '90s rock icons the Lemonheads to pop rock mainstays United States Three and the Pieces.
Gass is on the education advisory board for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland and is consistently ranked as a favorite professor on the IU Bloomington campus.
