More than just one of the most popular musicians and songwriters of the 20th century, John Lennon was a talented and respected artist. The former Beatle, who attended the Liverpool Art Institute for three years, loved art and continued to draw throughout his lifetime.
Fans of Lennon can take a glimpse into his artistic soul at the exhibit The Artwork of John Lennon: In My Life, on display Friday, Saturday and June 25 at a warehouse in Alexandria, Va. Lennon's widow Yoko Ono presents the touring exhibit, which features more than 100 original drawings, hand-signed pieces and limited-edition prints of works created between 1968 and 1980.
The exhibit will be on view from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 25 at the warehouse space at 1006 King St. in Alexandria, Va. A donation of $2 to benefit the Alexandria Seaport Foundation is requested. Call 888-278-1969.
