An in-depth look at Rhymin’ Simon is coming to Baltimore. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is making Baltimore the first stop for a touring exhibit that pays tribute to the great musician before he bookends his career.
“Paul Simon: Words and Music” will be at the Jewish Museum of Maryland starting on Oct. 11. The exhibit features films, 80 artifacts and other memorabilia. Some of the material is narrated by Simon himself, which was the museum’s attempt to give Simon a chance to tell his own story.
Simon’s career is primed for such a deep dive. He started as a songwriter for others before linking up with Art Garfunkel to take the 60s by storm with Simon and Garfunkel. A solo career then carried him into the next generation, with albums like Graceland maintaining his household staple status.
The exhibit will run through Jan. 18, 2016.
