“ The inclusion of Warren Linn’s work in this exhibition illustrates the meshing of illustration and fine art that appeared at the zenith of American publishing in the 1990’s. This exhibition is a celebration of music through the eyes of art in direct conversation with the rocks, minerals and fossils from the world renowned Geology Collection of the Illinois State Museum.  We are seeking to elevate the material by contrasting the nature of earth’s explosive structure with the culturally defining music created in the last fifty (50) years.  Timeless rocks meet timeless rock stars!”
