Dan Fong: Music & Counterculture in Colorado

This exhibit tells the story of Colorado’s premier rock and roll photographer and the ways he documented the golden age of 1960s and 1970s rock music in our state. This exhibit presents selected photographs and ephemera from the Dan Fong collection, housed at the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries’ Archives, and tells the behind-the-scenes stories of the collection and its creator.  Dan Fong’s photographs are the cornerstone of the Archives’ new initiative to document music, counterculture, and social change in the Rocky Mountain region.

Listen to Megan Friedel, Head of the University Libraries' Archives, interview Dan Fong on the CU at the Libraries podcast.  And enjoy the Libraries' curated Spotify playlist of songs and artists mentioned in this exhibit.
