INSTRUMENTHEAD: A Michael Weintrob Exhibit
Join us at the Parthenon Museum for INSTRUMENTHEAD, a three-month photo exhibition by award-winning Nashville photographer, Michael Weintrob, from June 12, 2019, to September 8, 2019.
This exhibition will feature over 20 striking and intimate portraits of Nashville based artists with their instruments. Artists featured at the exhibit will include four-time Grammy Award winner, Keb’ Mo’, Grammy Award winner, Jeff Coffin, multi-instrumentalist, Darrell Scott, Musicians Corner alumni, Wu Fei, and more.
The concept began in April 2000 at a photo shoot in which he suggested the musicians put their instruments in front of their faces, “just to spice things up and get creative.” The response was overwhelmingly positive, and “sparked an unprecedented art project, bringing together more than 500 musicians from across the globe over the course of nearly two decades.” In 2017 the INSTRUMENTHEAD book was published by Magnet Bound Press and won the Independent Publisher Book Award for Most Outstanding Design.
