Her two story Second Life gallery (Kim's 1960's & 70's Counter Culture Center) has hundreds of photos from throughout her career on display. The first floor is mostly Rock and Roll and Cultural Icons of that era (including Jimi Hendrix, Andy Warhol, Gene Roddenberry, Gram Parsons, Jerry Garcia and MANY more) as well as political and literary figures. The second floor has reggae in the mid-70s (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear etc), production stills from the early films of John Carpenter and a room with changing exhibits (currently celebrity panelists from the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con). ____________________
