ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The Decade that Rocked: A Tribute to the ’80s encapsulates the heyday of these rock and metal icons with images of a young Jon Bon Jovi at the Freehold Raceway in 1980; Ozzy Osbourne on the roof of Asbury Park’s Convention Hall in 1981; Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider taking on Washington D.C. in 1985 for the Parents of Music Resource Center hearings; Guns N’ Roses outside CBGB in Manhattan in 1987 and much more.

ABOUT MARK WEISS
Mark “Weissguy” Weiss is a world-renowned photographer who has traveled the globe photographing legends from Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, and Mötley Crüe to Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, and KISS.

He visually documented historic events including the US Festival, Live Aid, the Moscow Music Peace Festival, and the PMRC hearings in Washington, DC.
