REVIEW: "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" Exhibit at the Henry Ford (Part 3 of 5)



In 2012 I found myself on at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland on assignment from Motorcityblog. The museum was massive and contained 6 floors of exhibits. A music lovers dream come true.

A music lover trough and through, I jumped at the chance to cover the "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" touring exhibit brought to you by The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and having it's final U.S. touring stop at the Henry Ford in Dearborn. A large collection of over 250 pieces of memorabilia from 70 women in rock and roll history.

There is so much to cover in regards to the exhibit that I plan on releasing my "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" review in five parts over the next few weeks.

Women love clothing. Women who rock really love clothing. As a female rock star you are often judged on your appearance and what better way to show off then with your outfit. The exhibit is jam packed with some amazing attire including outfits from Liz Phair, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Michelle Phillips, Cass Elliot, Grace Slick, Jani Joplin, Donna Summer, Pat Benatar, Cindy Wilsom, Kate Pierson, Deborah Harry, Melissa Etheridge, Mavis Staples, Odetta, Mary Wilson,  Darlene Love, Lesley Gore, Loretta Lynn and Lavern Baker.

We would like to highlight some of this attire for you. Enjoy!
