MSG July 1977 - Elliot TaymanMadison Square Garden in New York have just launched two unique exhibits — "Garden 366" and "Defining Moments" — celebrating the legendary venue's greatest moments in their more than 130 year history. This is part of the three-year restoration of the venue.

"Over the last 133 years, The Garden has played host to some of the most memorable moments in sports, entertainment and politics, and it was important to us that we celebrate and honor this unparalleled history by capturing these incredible moments as part of the transformed Garden," said Hank Ratner, president and CEO, The Madison Square Garden Company. "Whether a fan wants to discover what happened on their birthday, recall events they attended over the years or learn about all of the magical Garden moments, we believe — with the 'Garden 366' and 'Defining Moments' exhibits — that we have successfully created what will become a special destination for all fans who visit The Garden. Over time, as more memorable moments continue to occur, these exhibits will be updated to include the next great moment that happens at The World's Most Famous Arena."

When fans return to The Garden in November, the Madison Concourse (6th Floor) will be completed with Garden 366, a visual retrospective that brings to life one moment in Garden history for every day of the year. The retrospective will wrap the entire circumference of the Arena, creating a visual calendar of The Garden's history spanning sports, music, entertainment and politics. In addition, this fall, the first 10 of 20 of The Garden's Defining Moments will be commemorated on the Madison Concourse through special exhibits that feature photos, memorabilia and additional artifacts, representing each of these moments in Garden history. The remaining 10 Defining Moments will be integrated into the Garden Concourse (8th Floor) for debut in fall 2013.

Amongst the entries in Garden 366 is one from Brain Damage's very own Elliot Tayman. His shot of Pink Floyd from their 1977 concerts at the MSG is included, as their July 3rd entry (despite the picture actually having been taken on July 1st). You can see a thumbnail of the shot here - but will have to visit the venue itself to see it in all its glory!
