American Pie at Gallery 782

September 4

"American Pie Exhibit"
Gallery 782 goes retro during the month of September by bringing back the iconic song by Don McLean, "American Pie". It is a song loved and sung by many, yet the words are sad and yearning. McLean recently revealed what drove him to write the song in 1971 about so many beloved American idols who had died over the past years, initially inspired by Buddy Holly's death in 1959. The song includes references to Karl Marx; Vladimir Lenin (or, more likely, John Lennon); the Fabulous Four; the Byrds; James Dean; Charles Manson; the Rolling Stones; the "widowed bride," Jackie Kennedy; and the Vietnam War. He wrote of people who died too early and of dreams that faded. He wrote about his feelings about America itself.

The 36 artists of Gallery 782 will present over forty works that seek to express their feelings about the various verses and the chorus of that song. The works, in various mediums, will reference the verse that inspired their piece of art. This will be an amazing body of work not to be missed. Refreshments will be served and music will be provided. 

  • Date(s): 09/04/2015 - 09/04/2015
  • Times: 5pm -7pm
