The Rock Hall will ask ‘Does Rock and Roll Belong in a Museum?’ at the SXSW Music Festival in 2010. Initially, many thought the idea of the Rock Hall was antithetical to the spirit of rock and roll. Despite its success, the question of whether rock and roll belongs in a museum persists. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s panel will address the relevance, importance and future of the preservation and education about this art form.
