The first display showcases every Juno winner for album artwork since that category was introduced in 1975. The second presents both performance and candid photographs of Juno award nominated and winning artists, many of whom are now household names in Canada and around the world. –Canadian Museum of Civilization

Weee! I only know Arcade Fire’s though. I have physical copies of all their albums, and I always enjoy and love their album inlays.
I think album covers are really an unappreciated art. Thanks for your comment.
I know. It is sad, but hard to blame technology and you get really stop that tide of modern time. What I do hate is when pop music only put their faces on the cover so that their appearance is easily recognizable when you’re downloading their songs on iTunes. Shame that their glamorized images are used instead of art.
Thanks. I would love to see this exhibit, but it’s a five-hour drive from the Toronto area.
