RAW regular Caroline Brogen wrote to suggest that we highlight an interesting photo exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum: "Selections from Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present."

She writes: "It's a photographic history from 1955 to the current day and is comprised of candids, performance shots, publicity portraits, and album cover art from more than 100 photographers."

The exhibit also was mentioned in today's G section of the Globe.

There are several related events going on in conjunction with the exhibit.

At 2 p.m. Sunday (March 14), a former Worcester nightclub impresario, Ed Medaus, will talk about the exhibit and Worcester's days as a hotbed of live music. Medaus co-founded the club "The Comic Strip" in the 1960s, which featured major musicians like The Animals, Tommy James and the Shodells, and many more performing live almost every weekend.

The following Sunday, March 21, is a Rock & Roll Family Day from 1 to 4:30 p.m., with art activities, games, and live performances.

Both events are free with museum admission. For a list of more events, visit the museum website.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
