Details

Drawn from The Sheldon’s Hartenberger World Music Collection, this exhibit features over 100 unique stringed instruments
from around the world. Highlights include a rare Rubab from Afghanistan, an unusual pochette (pocket) violin from France, a
double bass and violin made from matchsticks, a harpsichord once owned by former St. Louis resident comedienne Phyllis
Diller, a Gibson guitar signed by B.B. King, and a special edition KISS logo Gene Simmons “Axe” bass, among many other
rare instruments.

The exhibition is made possible in part by Dr. Aurelia and Jeffrey Hartenberger.
