John Lennon Art On Display in SoHo



Whether you loved John Lennon, you love art, or you just want to be part of the latest thing to hit SoHo, get to 72 Green Street soon. For what would have been John Lennon’s 73rd birthday, an exhibition is being showcased there of his drawings.

It includes 100 drawings and song writing that he created between 1964 and 1980 and includes a wide range of expressions.

As Peter Haskell of WCBS880 explained, “The nature of his drawings are pretty simple for the most part, cartoonish almost. Very, very cool stuff with some amazing history.”

The suggested donation for entering is $3 and all proceeds will benefit a nonprofit group that offers meals to homebound elderly people in New York. As Citymeals-on-Wheels executive director Beth Shapiro said, “I’m hoping that we reach $20,000, which is about what we did last year and it’s huge for us. Every meal that we deliver is $6.42, $20,000 goes a long way.”

All of the works in the show are available to be purchased. The show is presented by Yoko Ono, Bag One Arts and Legacy Fine Arts and Productions.
