Continuing the Lennon legacy of peace and love, Yoko Ono, Legacy Productions & Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano are proud to bring The Art of John Lennon to downtown Walnut Creek for Mother’s Day weekend May 9th to 11th. Few people know that John did not pick up a guitar for 5 of the last 7 years. Few people know that John did not pick up a guitar for 5 of the last 7 years of his life. During those years he channeled his philosophy through his drawings. They, along with earlier sketches and song lyrics make up nearly the nearly 100 limited edition lithographs, serigraphs and copper etchings that will be on display. His artwork is both inspirational and generational. John leaves behind a potent message for future generations. These exhibits have not only been a forum to view John as an artist but also as a venue to raise funds and awareness for countless local charities. This exhibit will be benefitting Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. For the past 20+ years Yoko has brought this collection around the world as meeting place for Lennon, Beatles, peace, music, humanitarian, activist, lyricist, satirist and icon fans from all different walks of life.
