Beatles Fans & Art Enthusiastic Rejoice! John Lennon Art Exhibit Coming to Centennial
Beatles Fans & Art Enthusiastic Rejoice! The large national tour of artwork by music legend John Lennon is coming to Centennial and will include works not seen in Denver previously.
There will be more than 120 serigraphs, signed lithographs and song lyrics. Of special interest is a rare portfolio of “Bag One” lithographs, signed by Lennon in 1969. (A complete set is in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection in New York.)
The exhibit is produced by Pacific Edge Gallery, Laguna Beach, Calif., which has worked with Yoko Ono and the John Lennon estate since 1988. This is part of a national tour in which Yoko Ono has lent some highly personal drawings by John Lennon to be put on display in his remembrance.
The gallery website offers a quote from Lennon: “If art were to redeem man, it does so only by saving him from the seriousness of life and restoring him to an unexpected boyishness.”
That attitude shines through in many of his whimsical images. They are meant to elicit a smile from a viewer.
This exhibit will be held:
At: The Streets at SouthGlenn 6911 S. University Blvd, Centennial Co
On: Nov. 2-4
Gallery hours: Friday and Saturday- 10 a.m.-9 p.m. ; Sunday-10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Admission to the exhibit is free but there will be a catalog and a number of the artwork are for sale.
