Springsteen Archives Curates New Photo Exhibit at Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame in Boston


September 13, 2023 - April 6, 2024


Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame at Boch Center's Wang Theatre


The Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music has curated a new exhibit, Bruce Springsteen: Portraits of an American Music Icon, which opened on September 13, 2023 at The Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame (FARHOF), Boston’s living music museum inside the Boch Center Wang Theater.

The exhibit features an intimate look at “The Boss” through the lens of close friends, photographers, and family members. The exhibit includes over 40 photographs from six notable Springsteen photographers:  Danny Clinch, Ed Gallucci, Eric Meola, Ron Pownall, Barry Schneier, Pamela Springsteen and Frank Stefanko.

From the streets and shores of New Jersey to the sunbaked landscapes of California, this career-spanning photo exhibit showcases intimate photographs of one of America’s most important musical voices.  Through photos and interviews, this exhibit gives a unique perspective of Bruce Springsteen away from the sold-out arenas and in front of the lens.

“Bob Santelli and his team at the Springsteen Archives have done an incredible job selecting these images that paint a unique picture of Bruce as a man, not just a rock-n-roll legend,” said Joe Spaulding , President and CEO of the Boch Center.  “This exhibit is unlike any other and even die-hard fans will come away with something new that they didn’t know about ‘The Boss'”.

The Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame is located inside the Boch Center’s Wang Theatre at 270 Tremont Street, Boston, Massachusetts and is open for tours.  Tour tickets are $25 for adults and $17 for children.  Guests can find the most up-to-date schedule and book tours at For updates and to join the mailing list for news, announcements and more visit
