Art of Rock Legends Opening Reception

No plans set for Friday night? Come to the opening event of San Rafael Rocks, the film and music celebration which benefits Bay Area arts program for homeless children, DrawBridge. When you take a look at the list of participants (that reads like a who’s who of rock and roll royalty) you’ll see that this event is not to be missed. The benefit exhibition features artwork by iconic 60’s musicians, artists and photographers including 21 original artworks by Jerry Garcia, presented in partnership with The Jerry Garcia Foundation. Original artwork has also been donated by Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Marty Balin, Commander Cody, Peter Max, Dave Getz and more. On top of all of that, some of the best rock ‘n’ roll photographers of the era have also donated their work, including Baron Wolman, the first Chief of Photography for Rolling Stone magazine, Robert Altman, Graham Nash, Ed Perlstein and Richard Pechner. The exhibition will also include outstanding rock posters from artists Stanley Mouse, Pat Ryan, Arlene Owseichik and Shane Grogg.
