Peace, Rock ‘n’ Roll, and Maps: Woodstock Music Festival 40th Anniversary Map Exhibit at Ball State University Libraries
The GIS Research and Map Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library is featuring a map created to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival in a special exhibit. The map uses an aerial photograph from Google Earth marking the location of the field next to Max Yasgur’s farm near Bethel, New York, which was the site of the Woodstock Music Festival on August 15-18, 1969. A poster advertising the concert as “an Aquarian exposition in White Lake, New York—three days of peace and music” is shown along with photographs from Life magazine. The map will be exhibited through the end of August in the windows of the GRMC.
