New Ramones Exhibit Set to Open at GRAMMY Museum

The GRAMMY Museum’s newest exhibit Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk is set to open Friday, September 16th. The exhibit will be on display through February 2017 at the GRAMMY Museum at LA Live.

Co-curated by the GRAMMY Museum and the Queens Museum, in collaboration with Ramones Productions Inc., the exhibit commemorates the 40th anniversary of the release of the Ramones’ 1976 self-titled debut album and contextualizes the band in the larger pantheon of music history and pop culture.

The exhibit is organized under a sequence of themes — places, events, songs, and artists —and includes items by figures such as:

  • Arturo Vega (who, along with the Ramones, designed the famed Ramones logo)
  • Sergio Aragones (cartoonist for Mad magazine)
  • John Holmstrom (Punk magazine founder and cartoonist)
  • and Shepard Fairey

Also included in the exhibit are contributions from the personal collections of:

  • Mickey Leigh (Joey Ramone’s brother and Ramones’ original stage manager)
  • Linda Ramone (Johnny Ramone’s wife)
  • and Monte Melnick (Ramones’ tour manager)

And rock photographers such as:

  • Roberta Bayley (who shot the first Ramones album cover)
  • Bob Gruen
  • David Godlis
  • Danny Fields (Ramones’ first manager)
  • Jenny Lens
  • and others who were intimately involved with the group throughout their career

Additional artifacts will also include personal memorabilia such as clothing and instruments.
