Byrd/Skolnick: A Tale of Two Posters 

click to enlarge short-list_byrdskolnick12x18v2.jpg

Both David Edward Byrd and Arnold Skolnick designed posters for the original Woodstock festival. Skolnick’s dove perched on a guitar became iconic; the world may not have been ready for Byrd’s full frontal nude. Their other works include rock posters, posters for Broadway shows, television, movies, impressionistic oil paintings drawn from nature, fine-art compilations, and erotic nudes. Over 150 different pieces, including some of the spin-offs of the classic Woodstock logo, are on display as the Museum at Bethel Woods showcases “Byrd/Skolnick: A Tale of Two Posters” from April 1 through July 22. Go on April 28 or 29 and experience the full glory of the Rock Art Poster Fair.

    Spring is, of course, a time of great renewal. And perhaps for the Hudson Valley music scene this year's greatest spring-renewal story is the reopening of Woodstock's former Colony Cafe as, simply, Colony.
