This exhibition features a dazzling group of photographs taken by renowned artist, Allan Tannenbaum during his tenure in New York City at SoHo Weekly News from 1973 to 1982. As the Chief Photographer and Photo Editor of the newspaper, he was on the scene covering the Big Apple's riotous nightlife at iconic discotheques, concerts, and bars where fashion elites, celebrities, rock musicians, artists, and hipsters convened. From photographing Arena rock stars such as the Rolling Stones, celebrated prominent figures like Muhammad Ali, and emerging punk musicians such as Patti Smith, Tannenbaum captured a time where the city was bursting with creativity and verve in spite of the hardships and political issues of the time.

Many of these photographs are presented in Tannenbaum's newly published book, Grit and Glamour: The Street Style, High Fashion, and Legendary Music of the 1970's. A book signing and artist talk with Tannenbaum will be held during the course of the show. Each section of the book focuses on a different aspect of the decade-from nightlife, fashion, and street scene to arts and entertainment and music, accompanied by insightful commentary and revealing anecdotes.
