The Artwork of John Lennon On Display in a Pop-Up Gallery in SoHo

Yoko Ono is presenting the artwork of the late Beatles star, John Lennon in a 10,000-square foot brick building at 76 Wooster Street (between Spring and Broome) for a celebration of what would have been John Lennon's 71st birthday. The show is open to the public. Over 100 of Lennon's limited-edition drawings and reprinted song lyrics are on display at the "Gimme Some Truth" exhibit. According to published reports, the artwork for sale consists of lithographs, seriographs and copper etchings of the pen, pencil and Japanese sumi ink drawings of John Lennon, and each are “signed” in the Japanese tradition with Mr. Lennon’s “chop,” a personalized red stamp which in his case reads “Like a Cloud, Beautiful Sound.” Also available are lithographs of some rare Bag One drawings, the portfolio of wedding drawings and controversial erotic works (some depicting himself and his wife), which Mr. Lennon gave Ms. Ono at their wedding. The 100 pieces were created by Lennon between 1964 and 1980. A portion of the works will be up for sale with proceeds benefiting Citymeals-on-Wheels, a meal delivery service for senior citizens. The exhibit runs through October 10.
