kinds of memories can music recall? You may be surprised
at the new exhibit Jukebox Memories, one of over
forty exhibits that comprise MEMORY, on view from
March 23, 2002 - June 23, 2002 at the California
Science Center. Listen to three number-one hits
from every year between 1955 and 1995 and see what
you remember. With each song, the exhibit asks you
if you can name the recording artist. But there
are many more layers of memory here. Unbidden, they
seem to wash over you with every note; your first
dance, your first love, the delights and disappointments
of years gone by.
Memory looks at the biological, psychological and
cultural dimensions of memory through demonstrations,
art works, images, sounds and even smells and tastes.
