LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -  On October 8, the Clinton Presidential Center will debut Ladies and Gentlemen… The Beatles!, a temporary exhibit celebrating the fascination America has had with “Beatlemania.”  

“This exhibit is more than a tribute to John, Paul, George, and Ringo; it’s a testament to the transformative power of music,” said Stephanie S. Streett, executive director of the Clinton Foundation.  “We are thrilled to partner with the Grammy Museum and share the story of how four lads from Liverpool landed on American soil and changed the landscape, forever.” 

This exhibit will explore the impact The Beatles’s arrival had on American pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media and music.  The exhibit will focus on the height of Beatlemania in the United States (February of 1964 until September of 1966); however, the exhibit will also include the band’s early days in the United Kingdom (1960-1963), as well as their post-touring years (1967-1970.)

More than 400 pieces of memorabilia, including records, rare photographs, tour artifacts, videos, and instruments will be on display throughout the Clinton Center. The Beatles! will also include a sign-along booth where guests can record their own version of “Yellow Submarine.”

Additionally, Clinton Center guests can recreate the iconic “Abbey Road” album cover as they walk in front of a giant wall graphic of the famous zebra striped street.  Both interactive experiences are offered at no additional charge and guests are encouraged to share their Beatle moments via social media. 

The exhibit closes April 2, 2017.
