Walk, Don't Run: 60 Years of the Ventures (Through Aug. 3, 2020)

One of the most influential and prolific bands in rock and roll history, The Ventures have recorded more than 250 albums in the past 60 years. Between 1960 and 1972, 38 of The Ventures' albums made it to the charts. With more than 100 million records sold, The Ventures are the best-selling instrumental band of all time. Their versatility has allowed the band to explore several music styles throughout their career, including surf, country, classical, and more. Additionally, the Ventures released instructional albums that many novice guitar players have credited as a direct influence on their own bands, which has earned The Ventures the honorary title of "the band that launched a thousand bands."

On view through Aug. 3, Walk, Don't Run: 60 Years Of The Ventures exhibits original items from the group's six-decade career, including instruments, tour programs, never-before-seen photos, vinyl, and more. Highlights include a 1965 Mosrite The Ventures Model Electric Guitar, an original test pressing of "Hawaii Five-O," and an original 45 RPM of their first hit, "Walk, Don't Run" - the 1960 single was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the Top 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time.
