“So This is Christmas: The Artwork of John Lennon” will be in Stamford for three days only, Friday, Nov. 30, to Sunday, Dec. 2, in an event that will benefit the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.
(The title of the exhibit comes from a lyric written by Lennon: “…and so this is Christmas and what have you done?” The charity benefiting from the exhibit is inspired by another Lennon lyric: “Imagine there’s no hunger ...,” from the iconic album “Imagine,” which is 40 years old.
The exhibit will be presented jointly by Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono and Legacy Fine Art & Productions. “You will have an opportunity to see John as an artist in the true sense of the word and not only take a look into his mind but experience ‘A Day in the Life’ of John Lennon through his drawings, sketches and written words from his days as a Beatle up until his untimely death,” the press release states.
This is a picture called “Happy Life.” It’s copyright Yoko Ono. I got it off the Facebook page of the exhibit. Here’s the link to that page, if you want to keep up with news of the show, and see more examples of art that is in the show: https://www.facebook.com/#!/Artworkofjohnlennon?fref=ts
