Sloan Fine Art in New York has a not to be missed exhibit celebrating Alternative Press Magazine’s 25th anniversary. The exhibit features rarely seen photos, works of art from rock stars, past AP magazine covers and rock-inspired art. There’s one slight catch: like rock and roll goes, this exhibit is only in town for 3 days – so you have no time to waste!
