The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library is pleased to announce the opening of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Collection, Series 2: Posters. The series consists of several hundred wall posters, flyers, album flats, and promotional displays for a wide range of artists with connections to Georgia. The majority of posters feature individual artists and groups, promoting their albums and tours. Notable items include an original 1965 Otis Redding promo poster for his single, “Respect,” a 1969 Atlanta International Pop Festival poster, and posters of Athens luminaries like R.E.M. and the B-52s. The posters are just one of several series that comprise the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Collection, which will gradually become available to the public as the processing of materials continues.
