This week on Out and About, Bill Conger joins Jenn Gordon to talk about the new exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. "GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World" takes visitors of all ages on a fascinating and engaging exploration of the art, science, sound, history and pop culture behind the world's most popular instrument! The exhibit features a unique collection of more than 70 instruments - ranging from the rare and antique to the wildly popular and innovative - along with performance video, models and more. Bill shares how the exhibit gives you a chance to enjoy the instrument, not only from the perspective of its history, evolution, and design, but through the music it has created and the technology that continues to enhance it.
