A collection of artwork by the late singer-songwriter and artist John Lennon (1940-1980) will be on display this weekend only at Tyson’s Corner Center, beginning next Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17 from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Sunday, October 18 from 12- 6 p.m.
According to the exhibit organizers, John Lennon began drawing long before he owned a guitar. The posthumous, limited edition prints that will be on display are adapted from Lennon’s original drawings. The art has been selected from rare archival sketches and is representative of his whimsical and thought provoking imagery. Each print is reproduced utilizing the sophisticated and detailed standards typical for archival fine art printing processes, guided, approved and hand-signed by his wife Yoko Ono, also a musician and artist.
Scheduled events will feature programming led by Collection Expert Nim Vaswani, exhibition authority on the works of John Lennon. Mr. Vaswani will be in the gallery and available to the public; speaking on the exhibited works and providing insight into the history and stories behind the artwork.
Although admission is free to view the artwork, a portion of the proceeds from the presentation will be donated back to the Capital Area Food Bank.
