Born in the USA: Bruce Springsteen Exhibit Opens at Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center

National Constitution Center (CC Flikcr photo credit: Javier Repoport) The National Constitution Center may not seem like the most obvious institution to host a Bruce Springsteen exhibit. Opened in 2003, the Philadelphia museum is dedicated to the United States Constitution and its evolution throughout American history.

 

Visitors to the Center can trace the timeline of “We the People” from humble beginnings in the late 18th Century straight through to the digital age. However, now through September, visitors to the museum will also be able to trace the timeline of one of America’s biggest superstars: Bruce Springsteen.

 

The life and career of the American rocker will be on display in an exhibit titled "From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen."

 

The exhibit will host tons of Springsteen memorabilia as well as dozens of personal affects from the Boss. Though Bruce might initially might seem out of place at the museum, Erin McLeary, coordinator of the exhibit, sees a perfect fit. “Springsteen’s music speaks to our mission about the fight for democracy. He really speaks with an American voice,” she told the Wall Street Journal.
