In honor of Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph on August 12th, 1877, we invite you to join us in celebrating National Vinyl Record Day this Sunday in the Henry Art Gallery’s test site from 12:00pm-3:00pm.
A variety of large and small northwest labels will be present at the event to both sell their records as well as talk with visitors about the ins and outs of the production, distribution, and cultural economy of the Record.
This event is taking place in conjunction with the Henry’s current show, The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, which explores the culture of vinyl records within the context of contemporary art.
Come snag some new records and learn from industry insiders this Sunday at the Henry in honor of National Vinyl Record Day!
Hope to see you there,
