Friedman was an avid photographer when he worked in the music business in the 60s and 70s. He took thousands of photographs of artists he worked with but lost track of the negatives nearly 50 years ago until he found them earlier this year.

The pop-up exhibit is a preview of more than 75 photographs that will be exhibited at the California Heritage Museum April - June 2018 in Santa Monica, California. Artists include The Band, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Kris Kristofferson, and more. 

Guest artist Harris Diamant, a pioneering dealer in American Folk Art since the 1960s, turned to creating sculpture in the mid-1980s. Diamant's work has been featured in one-person shows at galleries in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 

A portrait of Mick Jagger by Michael Friedman is also included in the exhibit LOUD at The Gallery at Still River Editions, through December 22, 2017
