Don’t miss the opening reception of The Beat Scene: Photographs by Burt Glinn, at the Beat Museum! These brilliant images, captured by Magnum photographer Burt Glinn in New York and San Francisco in 1959 and 1960, offer an intimate look into the lives and times of the Beat Generation, featuring many of the movement’s key figures—Jack Kerouac, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gregory Corso, Hugh Romney (better known as Wavy Gravy), Ted Joans, Enrico Banducci, Leroi Jones (Amiri Baraka), and others.

The Beat Scene: Photographs by Burt Glinn
will run from July 19th to November 19th, 2018.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the release of a new book The Beat Scene: Photographs by Burt Glinn, published by Reel Art Press, containing Glinn’s photographs, an essay by Jack Kerouac, and additional writings by Sarah Stacke and Michael Shulman, and is made possible by Magnum Photos, Picto New York, and Reel Art Press.
