(from Lee Kaufman:)
I don't think I have seen this info posted yet and thought it would be of great interest:
1. There is a very nice photography show of Dylan called LEGACY-DYLAN IN WOODSTOCK--by Elliott Landy, Daniel Kramer, John Cohen and Lynn Goldsmith at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, New York from January 13-March 11, 2001. Website --
2. Also, and perhaps even more exciting, is an exhibit of work by John Cohen and Fred McDarrah at a restaurant called the Clove in Highfalls, New York (very close to Woodstock) which includes a large number of Dylan photos many of which are unpublished and VERY INTERESTING. These images will be up on there walls through the spring. Unfortunately, no website.
Anyone in the New York metropolitan area may want to plan a trip to see these shows in the next couple of weeks. By the way, I understand the food at the Clove is very good, but did not have time to eat there on my trip.
