Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records

Explore the social and cultural phenomenon of listening to, collecting, and sharing records in Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records, on view April 19–July 27, 2014. Delve into a uniquely Californian take on this popular medium with experiences ranging from individual and group listening stations to informal talks and live performances. Listen to music produced by influential Bay Area independent labels, examine notable record collections, explore displays of vibrant album cover art, and hear interviews with record collectors—all in an innovative listening space. With opportunities to play albums and participate in music events and performances, Vinyl invites you to become a part of the exhibition itself.

Vinyl connects to OMCA’s major spring exhibition SuperAwesome: Art and Giant Robot through programs and in-gallery experiences celebrating how a range of communities comes together to create shared popular culture.
