The Beatles: A One-Night Stand in the Heartland




On display July 17 - Sept. 12, 2010.

In August, 1965, a 17-year-old local photographer documented the Beatles’ only appearance in Minnesota. Bill Carlson’s images are the focus of this new exhibit, including photos of the band’s arrival at Wold Chamberlain Field, the mobs of girls waiting to greet them, their press conference and performance at Met Stadium. This is the first major exhibit of the images, some of which have never been published. Many of the images are taken from Carlson's book of the same name.

View images from this memorable event in the Society's online Photo and Art Database.
