On Saturday, April 4, the Museum at Bethel Woods will open for the 2015 season featuring a new exhibit “Peace, Love, Unity, Respect: The Rise of Electronic Music Culture in America.” Inspired by Mysteryland, an international electronic music festival that has made a stop at Bethel, the exhibit illuminates the history, aesthetics and communities of the global electronic music culture. “Peace, Love, Unity, Respect” is on display from April 4 through May 31. Admission costs $5 for the Special Exhibit, or included in the price of admission to the Main Exhibit.
Festival culture will also be celebrated during a fundraising event this spring. Designer and musician Andy Hilfiger has partnered with the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts to present “Festival Fashion: Bellbottoms and Butterfly Wings,” a runway show featuring festival-inspired clothing from Hilfiger’s personal collection. The show will be held in the Event Gallery at Bethel Woods on Saturday, April 25.
