The “Rock Heroes" exhibit
also features pieces that add to
the lore of Woodstock.

These include an “oflicial”
Woodstock T-shirt rocker Gra-
ham Nash. of Crosby, Stills. Neal:
& Young, allegedly purchased
at the Woodstock Music andArt
Fair. However. there were no
“ofiicial” T-shirts sold at Wood-
stock. museum Director Wade
Lawrence said.

Lawrence said these pieces
fit into the larger story behind
Woodstock. the telling of which
is the core . of the mission
undertaken by the Museum of
Bethel Woods.

“This isn’t about ‘you're
wrong. I'm right,‘ " Lawrence
said. “It's about building the
story."

In this same spirit, the “Rock
Heroes" exhibit features items
associated with Woodstock,
but not directly linked to the fee-
dval. such as clothing owned by
Sly Stone, Joe Cocker and Keith
Moon. drummer for The Who. ‘

although you can see where it
broke when he famously

smashed it on the stage. The
snowsuit looks like it could have
been designed by Andy Warhol.
