This summer marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock and across the nation, museums will be opening exhibits about the famous event. The Grammy Museum downtown is taking a new twist and when their exhibit opens this August, it will be through the eyes of festival goers--the people's history of Woodstock, in a sense."We’re asking people who attended Woodstock or were involved in any way to help us put the show together, by lending their own artifacts, photographs, and memories," explains Katie Dunham, the museum's Spokesperson. "We’re looking for muddy sleeping bags, ticket stubs, handmade crafts, whatever tells the story through the eyes of the people who witnessed one of the most significant cultural moments in American music history."

Those who were lucky enough to attend and have any objects to share can start the process on the museum's website. And you don't have to list in Los Angeles to be a part of this, if you've got friends living elsewhere, they can submit, too.

Currently on exhibit at the museum's rotating gallery is Songs of Conscience, Sounds of Freedom, which is the history of activism and music (from the revolutionary war to civil rights to Iraq), and the punk photography of Hollywood's Moshe Brakha.
