Notes:

A famous musician honored at an art museum? “David Bowie Is” showcases that David Bowie was much more than a musician. Intern Sam shares his experience after attending the exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. The show takes viewers on an interactive journey throughout Bowie’s life, highlighting the many creative endeavors, challenges, and changes he faced as a multi-talented artist; riding the entertainment wave through several decades. The show is currently on its final leg in the USA, and ends in July 2018, so get tickets now if you haven’t already!

FUN FACT: The “David Bowie Is” exhibit began in March 2013, after a Bowie archivist contacted the V&A Museum, in London, England, in 2010, wondering if they were interested in doing an exhibit. After some nervousness as to how the show would fair, the museum experienced record-setting attendance numbers, prompting the organizers to take the exhibit on a world tour. As the show traveled, more artifacts were added to reflect the cities where Bowie’s presence had the greatest impact.
