"Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg" just opened at the Contemporary Jewish Museum for a run through September 8. Ginsberg wrote poetic captions that appear in his handwriting under the photos. The exhibit is enhanced by a room where you can hear a recording of Ginsberg reading from several of his poems. Among the special programs related to the show is a mini music festival focusing on interpretations of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61" (Ginsberg had a sort of father-son relationship with Dylan).
